Olive oil has been known for its medicinal properties since the ancient times of Hippocrates.
Our knowledge of the health protective attributes of olive oil continues to expand through scientific research, blending today’s modern science with the wisdom of ancient beliefs and practices.
Rich in polyphenol content, olive oil is the only plant based natural food that has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, making it a very powerful Superfood.
Recent studies provide evidence that olive oil rich in phenolic content has a profound effect on the health of individuals as it lowers LDL cholesterol, protects the blood from oxidation, reduces risks of Type II Diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s and is showing promise in cancer research.
We have partnered with producers from Greece and Cyprus who are dedicated to the difficult processes required to harvest, mill and bottle premium olive oil that preserve the aromas and flavours, while protecting the polyphenol content.
We are proud to bring these very rare and powerful superfoods to health conscious individuals who seek reliable wholesome foods for their wellness and longevity.
By returning to the old ways with an enlightened approach to health and wellness, we can find simplicity in natural foods that are organically produced and sustainably grown.
“We believe that high polyphenol olive oil and olives are a health superfood which should be consumed by everyone, everywhere, every day.” And we couldn’t agree more!
At the Greek Olive Estate, the Mathiopoulos family cultivate, produce and package health protective olive oil with one goal in mind, “to preserve the natural flavour, quality and health benefits.” For over 300 years, wild olive trees have grown in harmony alongside beneficial herbs and aromatic plants, harvested in timeless ritual and tended with meticulous care by their ancestors. Costas and his two sons, George and Christos, proudly bring together the age old traditions with modern experience and technology to present Drop of Life Organic.
Challenging, painstaking, traditional and innovative, these four words describe the foundation for creating the ultra-premium olive oil, Pamako. The mountain olive groves of Pamako are located in the rugged terrain of Selino at an altitude of 500 meters. Preserving traditional methods of sustainable organic cultivation and processing, Eftihis, his family and partner Dorthea, bring their youthful passion and latest technology to produce an extraordinary olive oil in taste and quality.
“Throughout our journey we have kept the advice of our grandfathers in mind ‘to respect the trees, look after them and they will richly reward you with their fruits“ – Eftihis Androulakis
"It's a difficult job but I really enjoy it. What the ancient Greeks called 'ef zin', a good quality of life, I have it here in this beautiful environment.” – Maria Kalaboka, daughter of Nikos and Myrta.
With great care and love for what they do, the Kalabokas are the soul of the family farm, in the village of Plomari. The island of Lesbos is known for its silvery green hills where olive trees have grown in volcanic soil for centuries. The Kalabokas are devoted to the organic cultivation of olive trees producing Eirini Plomariou extra virgin olive oil, which has won fervent admirers throughout the world for its exceptional aroma, taste and quality.
In the Vatika Village of Laconia, homeland of the Spartans, lies a true heaven for the cultivation of olives. Among centuries-old ruins, near an underwater ancient city, under snow covered protective mountains comes this renowned extra virgin olive oil, Laconian Legacy
“My name is Metaxia, in Greek, this means ‘silky’, typical Spartan humour. Yet nothing about Laconia is ‘silky nor smooth’. Not even close! People here fight every day in the grove, people in touch with their legacy, who know exactly who they are and where they are heading.”
“Our oil is in our DNA, a part of our everyday life, our past and our future, our culture. Generation after generation since the glorious times of ancient Sparta” - Metaxia Retzeka
