PHILOLIA derives from the Greek word Philo (φίλο) and Oil, which means Love for the Olive Oil. We invented this name to define our passion and dedication in producing Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) since 1900. The olive groves pass from generation to generation in our family and through the years we have exceled in producing EVOO of the highest quality.
This exceptionally pure golden extract is produced by PETTAS family, who has great expertise in Extra Virgin Olive Oil production and follow methods with respect to Nature and to Olive Oil tradition.
We cultivate only olives of the KORONEIKI variety and PHILOLIA has been awarded by The World Olive Center

, constituting it an olive oil of excellent quality, with exceptional benefits for human health.
Regarding its taste, koroneiki variety is categorised among the most tasteful olive oils. The sensory analysis performed by the Kalamata Olive Oil Taste Laboratory at the University of Peloponnese in Greece certifies that PHILOLIA is characterised by fruity aromas, combined with a mild peppery and piquant flavor.

The olive groves are cultivated by our family for four generations and our aim is to produce high quality Olive Oil, that is first served on our tables and then to yours, with love and respect
