"Our story is not the bottle, it's inside the bottle. Taste the difference."
"Our olive oil is from Crete, the largest island of Greece in the Mediterranean. Crete has a rich history of producing olive oil since 5000 BC and is believed to be the origin of the first Olive Grove cultivation. Olive Groves cover over 65% of the entire terrain and is the largest producing island of Olive Oil in the Mediterranean."

Greece devotes 60% of its cultivated land to olive growing. It is the world's top producer of black olives and has more varieties of olives than any other country. Greece holds third place in world olive production with more than 132 million trees, which produce approximately 350,000 tons of olive oil annually, of which 82% is extra-virgin . About half of the annual Greek olive oil production is exported, but only 5% of this reflects the origin of the bottled product. Greece exports mainly to European Union (EU) countries, principally Italy, which receives about three-quarters of total exports. Olives are grown for oil in Greece, with Peloponnese being the source of 65% of Greek production, as well as in Crete, the Aegean Islands andIonian Islands. http://gain.fas.usda.gov/
