Our company was established as a result to the increasing demand for better quality olive oil in our region, which had to be controlled by strict management and quality standards. Following numerous meetings and discussions, 23 local olive oil farmers together with the Toplou Monastery finally founded the company in November 1999.

Ἡ ἐλαία ηὐλογήθη δαψιλῶς παρὰ τοῦ Δημιουργοῦ Θεοῦ. Ἐξ ἀρχαιοτάτων χρόνων τὸ ἔλαιον ἐθεωρεῖτο θεραπευτικὸν καὶ θεϊκὸν ἀγαθὸν διὰ τὴν ὑγιείαν ψυχῆς τε καὶ σώματος. Γεύσασθε καὶ ἴδετε τοῦτο τὸ Θεῖον Ἔλαιον.
