Producer | Elaikos
The olive tree is a treasure for the Greek people. The production of quality olive oil was a tradition for our family. Our grandfather Christodoulos Athanasiou Roumeliotis back in 1931, graduating from the agricultural school in Paramythia, Ioannina, sets quality as a primary goal for the olives and olive oil he produces. For me personally, his grandson is an inspiration, following his guidelines, incorporating the latest knowledge and technology. This is ELAiKOS, a true, early harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced from healthy green olives.
In our family business we do not mix olive oils! "ELAiKOS selection BLEND" is produced from olives collected from multivarietal family's estates, which consist of olive trees of different varieties, as planted by the grandfather. During the harvest, we do not separate the fruit by variety, but the harvested fruit from the whole estate with its different varieties, is crushed in the olive mill, just as it was collected in the olive groove. ELAiKOS selection BLEND consists of 70%variety of Halkidiki, 20% variety of Thassitiki, and 10% of various varieties such as Koroneiki, Konservolia-Amfisis, Manaki, Kalamon.
However, we also cultivate some olive grooves which consist entirely of a single olive variety. From these estates we produce "ELAiKOS selection MEGARITIKI" a 100% Megaritiki variety, "ELAiKOS selection THASITIKI" a 100% Thasitiki variety, "ELAiKOS selection KORONEIKI" a 100% Koroneiki variety, “ELAiKOS selection Picual” a 100% Picual variety.
