Why Olive oil?

Olive oil has been recognized as the most distinguishing element of the Mediterranean diet, which is linked to longer, healthier life. To learn more about olive oil's impressive list of health benefits click here.

Why Us?

Don't assume that all olive oils are equal. In fact, the vast majority of olive oil products found in your local supermarket are most likely of inferior quality, questionable origin and composition.

We take pride in our products, and we make sure that everything is done properly; harvesting, storage, mill extraction, bottling, packaging, distribution, you name it. To see what it takes to produce our premium organic extra virgin olive oil click here.

Why it's better than other cooking oils?

Better than other vegetable oils
Most commercially available vegetable oils are refined, bleached, and deodorized (RBD), and contain chemicals used in processing which results into a significant loss of their valuable nutrients. Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the other hand, is produced by simply pressing the fruit (olives), and it is the only oil that can be consumed as is, without any further chemical processing.

Better than butter
It’s a better alternative to butter, because not only it’s healthier (olive oil is cholesterol-free, whereas butter is full of saturated fats), but it can also boost your weight-loss effort. Why? Because olive oil has a much higher satiating power than butter, meaning it makes you “feel full” quickly and stop eating sooner.

Great for all cooking methods
Olive oil is not only for salad dressings and marinades, but it can be used with any cooking method. It’s great for frying because it has a high smoke point, meaning it preserves the actual taste of the food and it retains all of its nutritional benefits, even when cooking with high heat. It’s also great for baking because the natural antioxidants (such as vitamin E) in olive oil help to keep baked items fresher for a longer period compared to items baked with butter.

Other uses
Olive oil can be used for beauty regimens or enviromentally safe alternatives to hazardous household products. Learn more ...
