Our factory is conveniently located in immediate proximity of the main olive-growing regions of Northern and Central Greece. The adjacent regions offer rich harvest of famous varieties of Kalamon, Halkidiki and Amfissa olives.
Proximity to the producing regions allows us to build and maintain special relations with the farmers. We do not simply buy olives, instead we partner with growers to secure both quantity and quality of the fruits supplied. Our trucks deliver fresh fruits from fields twice a day during the harvesting season ensuring freshness of the fruit.
We are next to Thessaloniki – educational, industrial and logistical center of Northern Greece and Macedonia. Accordingly, we constantly draw from the best expertise in olive processing and packaging, and work with prominent research institutions in developing the product. Proximity to the Port of Thessaloniki allows for convenient, quick and cost-efficient transportation of the product to any destination around the globe.
We closely cooperate with farmers on cultivation practices to control the quality of the fruit on the tree. Each partner-grower maintains records reflecting irrigation regularity, quality of water used for said irrigation, all the treatments of the olive tree throughout the maturity of the fruit, amount of fertilizers used per tree. Our experts review the records and monitor the practices regularly to assure that the fruit is grown by balanced method to gain and retain all the useful properties of the fruit.
We are present at the harvesting process in order to control the way the olives are picked from the tree. This is an important stage that secures the wholeness of the fruit, and the undamaged state of the product. Therefore, we make sure that each olive is individually picked.
We make sure that each olive is handpicked individually, in order to be certain that only the most healthy and unbruised olives are chosen. The process of harvesting involves incredible amounts of wholesome human effort, and we feel that it is our duty to work with our teams in the field and make sure the labor is adequately compensated.
The large olive treatment facility with well-thought-of infrastructure for preparation and transportation of olives, as well as the brine, allows us to cure the olives of bitterness and ferment them to perfect their taste. Our professional and experienced staff monitors curing and fermentation process on a daily basis.
Packaging plays a vital role as our customers want to see modern and safe packaging. We are here to answer the call and meet those expectations! State-of-the-art packaging equipment allows us to pack olives in glass jars, metal tins, plastic trays, pouches and many more. We carefully pasteurize or sterilize our product to make it safe for you, using individual process for every product, taking into account size of the package, density and other properties of the product. You only choose the type of olives and the packaging. We will do the rest. Private labels are welcome!
We recirculate the brine which allows us to maintain its balance, along with protecting our environment. We decompose organic waste in a modern wastewater facility using most recent developments in microbiology.
