A fair-trade social project
Lesbos, the island of Sappho in the northeastern Aegean Sea, has become the theater of untold human pain during the ongoing migrant crisis. Its residents, along with volunteers from all over the globe, show unprecedented kindness by rescuing and taking care of refugees. The island’s producers, despite their dire finances, often put themselves at risk to simply be human and save people stuck in the freezing water. Their best product, their mild, aromatic, highly-nutritious olive oil hardly ever reaches the consumers. They have been farming for millennia with love for the environment with natural and exclusively organic means but for many reasons, their gold is kept away from you, the friends of great olive oil. We decided to do something about it; A fair-trade social enterprise to restore its deserved value. We find the absolutely best oil producer on the island each year, based on a fair scientific quality-related criteria and chemical analysis, extra-virgin, cold-pressed, using only natural means to harvest, as learnt from their forefathers. Aesthetics are important too; It’s put in a beautifully designed bottle, with an awarded design that brings up its real glory, making it suitable even for a present.
