The KORONEIKI variety – known as the finest of all, endowed with exceptional aroma and taste. For 4 generations, we have left our trees as nature created them.  

NO WATERING – NO CHEMICALS – NO MIXING  

Hand collected and cold extracted within 24h resulting in a very low acidity of 0,2 – 0,5%.    The lower the acidity – the better the quality.    Extra Virgin Grade has a max. of 0,8% acidity.

ISO 9001:2008 & ISO 22000:2005

Frequent quality tests from the Fresenius Institute and the Greek Chemistry Department.  Dark glass bottles & labels protect the olive oil from light for a longer shelf life.  Highest hygiene standards and advanced production technology.

 

“Threpsi” extra virgin olive oil comes from the variety Koroneiki from the region Messenia (Kalamata) & Sitia, Crete.

The harvest of the olive fruit is done by hand from late October to late December. Within 24 hours, the olive oil is produced by cold extraction.

Through its very low acidity, Threpsi achieves a fresh aroma and a full-bodied flavour with a peppery aftertaste, perfect for your salads as well as cooked or grilled vegetables, fish and meat.

Olive oil makes you feel satiated and therefor you eat less and have fewer sugar cravings. Some research has shown that olive oil can prevent and possibly even reverse the memory loss that accompanies Alzheimer’s disease.
 

Olive oil is rich in antioxidants, especially vitamin E, long thought to minimize cancer risk. Among plant oils, olive oil is the highest in monounsaturated fat, which doesn’t oxidize in the body.

It has been demonstrated that a diet that is rich in olive oil, low in saturated fats, moderately rich in carbohydrates and soluble fiber from fruit, vegetables, pulses and grains is the most effective approach for diabetics.

It helps lower “bad” low-density lipoproteins while improving blood sugar control and enhances insulin sensitivity.

Researchers discovered that a higher intake of olive oil and polyunsaturated fats found in fatty fish and vegetable oils is associated with a lower risk of depression.
