Fifty years ago the Greeks lived in a poor country struggling to heal its wounds from a brutal decade of war.
It was a country in transition from the least developed countries classification to that of the developing ones. Small things grew little by little. Everybody looked ahead and hoped for the best.
In big cities people were gaining a place in the world day by day. In small villages and neighborhoods, they had also started to acquire social and economic drive thanks to the initiative of some forward-looking people.
It was back then in our small, but not particularly poor village (since olive oil production had never been negligible here), our father, an extremely dynamic man, came forward to present the first modern olive oil press in the island of Samos, in order to replace the old and obsolete ones, in an effort to cover the constantly increasing production on the one hand and be in line with progress on the other.
Through really hard work and always seeking perfection, he started the first centrifugal oil mill on the island, in 1978. Later he managed to increase its production capacity.
As a natural course of events, the business was handed down to the younger ones.
With respect to our father’s experience, with diligence and industriousness in the present crowned by a great vision and hope for the future, the company keeps growing.
In 2006, we launched the process of standardization of extra virgin olive oil in a specially designed plant, thoroughly complying with all hygiene regulations.
