"We believe..."


We believe, olive oil is a source of life, because our grandfather Nikos Zarlis believed it, when this oil saved lives, in the Second World War. We believe, it is a precious, therapeutic, nutritional element, when it comes, gently, from ancient olive trees with care for the environment. We believe, its aroma and flavour is the most enjoyable feeling, when produced with enthusiasm and affection. That's why we produce this olive oil. Because we believe it.

An olive oil with history!

At the ancient olive groves of Pelion, in the late 19th century, a family tradition of olive oil production began. The grandfather Nikos Zarlis, a lawyer and deputy in Greek parliament of the time, took over the cultivation of the olive groves and the operation of the oil press mill belonging to the family of his wife Irene, a descendant of the great teacher of the nation Daniel Philippidis, from Milies. With great care, he produced excellent, pure olive oil that nurtured generations and saved lives in the Second World War.

the Story goes on...

The descendants have continued this tradition and today the great-grandchildren, Kostantis and Nikolas, revive it, combining traditional methods of cultivation and production with the most contemporary scientific knowledge and technologies.

Thus, grooming of olive trees and soil, pruning and watering, fertilization and plant protection follow, at the same time, the tradition and the most modern perceptions of ecological agriculture.

Thus, the old oil press mill, with the rolling stones and the animals, was replaced with a state-of-the-art biphasic, cold press oil mill. The old jars and cans were replaced with stainless steel containers and elegant packaging, with the best food hygiene standards.

Thus, the engraved Z on the trunks of the olive trees, the original grandfather's family name, became the logo of the modern product.


Why So Special?









We believe our oil is of superior quality
high nutritional value and curative properties
And we believe it with evidence



Ecological Methods

The cultivation of olive trees is done with the most ecological methods, without pesticides. Fertilization is done with laborious cutting of grass and not with chemical fertilizers.

Ultimate Freshness

The olives are placed in ventilated boxes and are driven quickly to the oil press mill, often on the same day and their pressing takes place within a few hours.

Like the Old Times

Harvesting is done traditionally, without mechanical means that wound the olives.

Cold Extracted

The oil press mill is biphasic which means it does not use rinsing water that drives away the beneficial substances of olive oil. The temperature in the blender does not exceed 27 °C, so the beneficial ingredients do not "burn".

Unfiltered

In order not to lose any of these ingredients, the final product remains unfiltered.

Perfect Storage

The olive oil is stored in a cool and shady place, in stainless steel containers, until it is packed in tins.



All the above processes are followed with dedication, responsibility and respect to the land of our ancestors, to the present environment and to the final consumer.

The result is an extra virgin olive oil with a characteristic aroma and rich flavor, with superior quality and nutritional value (acidity, peroxides, ultraviolet absorption, etc.)









HEALTH CLAIM

why so important?


The great feature of this olive oil is the high content of polyphenols (Hydroxytyrosol and Tyrosol), which allows it to carry the European Union's "Health Claim" (Regulation 432/2012). According to this Regulation, polyphenols of olive oil contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress. The beneficial effect is achieved with the daily intake of 20 g of olive oil. This olive oil contains at least 5 mg of hydroxytyrosol and its derivative tyrosyl, per 20 g of olive oil.
