Learn About Us

A fair-trade social project

Lesbos, the island of Sappho in the northeastern Aegean Sea, has a millenia-old tradition of olive harvest and fine-quality olive oil production. There are 11 million olive trees on the island that, according to a legend, an ottoman sultan ordered to get his palace’s olive oil from. The farmers work hard all year long and produce a truly golden olive oil: organic, mild, fruity, aromatic, cold-pressed and very healthy. Its high quality and nutritional value come from its unsaturated fats and phenols that protect our heart and skin.

However these farmers face a tough challenge. Their gold hardly ever reaches you, the friends of great olive oil and its consumers. There are so many middlemen and chemicals added, that in the end you get something of low quality for an enormous price. A bad value for money or even worse dangerous for your health. On top of that, Lesbos has recently become the theater of untold human pain during the ongoing migrant crisis. Locals and volunteers from all over the globe, show unprecedented kindness by rescuing and taking care of refugees and migrants. 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.

We decided to do something about it; A fair-trade social enterprise aiming at facing both problems. We find the 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. 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. 10% of the earnings is donated to two NGOs, Angalia and Solidarity Lesbos that humanely take care of the people in need, by providing them medicine, clothes and support on their way to a dignified life.

Thank you for partnering with us!
