Our company is a family business, established out of love for quality Olive Oil. It was founded in 1999 by a farmer of the Messinian land, Grandpapa Spiros, and was taken over by his son and grandsons. The company owns an olive oil production and trading unit in the village of Plati, 15 km from the city of Kalamata. Its headquarters are based in Athens along with the core of its activities.

Its main activities consist in the production, packing and trading of Extra Virgin Olive Oil PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) from the greater area of Kalamata and from Crete. From the area of Kalamata it produces the "Koroneiki" variety, a unique variety endowed with the bright green colour of the Olive Oil, its rich aroma and fine taste, which owes its name to the beautiful town of Koroni. The company exports its products to France, Great Britain, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Serbia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, China and Australia.

A special characteristic of the policy of our company is that the olive fruit used to make Olive Oil comes, to a great extent, from our own olive trees. We supervise and check systematically the proper growth of the olive trees and of their fruit, we eradicate diseases using organic methods-thus reducing the use of pesticides to the minimum. The best variety of olives "Koroneiki" are selectively hand picked and cold pressed within 24 hours in high technological methods. Unfiltered, the Olive Oil retains all its natural flavour and nutrients resulting in a mild, fresh, fruity and full bodied Olive Oil with low acidity not exceeding 0,5%.


Our aim is to marry the ancient Greek tradition with the use of hi-tech methods. The olive harvest uses the old, traditional methods: the olives are tapped with long rods, the fruit falls to the ground onto large cloths, they are then picked, the leaves are removed and the olives are taken to the olive press where the first olive juice is extracted in cold. The olive oil is gathered, filtered and stored in inox tanks, in accordance with the EU regulations, which guarantees its quality.

The quality of our production is certified by the Certificate of Food Management System (ISO 22000:2005) for the standardization and trade of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Olive Oil. We also obtained the Certificate of Protected Designation of Origin.
