How a quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil is created…
The history of modern civilization had significantly put Greece on the map, it defined the world for many kinds of aspects until today. So, it is not a big surprise that Greeks are also known for their extra virgin olive oil!
Fossilized olive leaves believed to be from 50,000 to 60,000 years old have been found on the Greek islands of the Aegean. The systematic cultivation of olive trees is said to have begun on the island of Crete in Neolithic times. This tells you that Greek ties to the olive tree run very deep indeed.
Nowadays, despite the economic turmoil that hit Greece a few years ago, it is still one of the top olive oil-producing countries in the world. Greek virgin olive oil is indisputably the finest.
Therefore, we are very excited to bring the reputable Crete-based family tradition of olive oil to Australia!
