  • The EVOOLEUM Guide of the TOP100 World's Best EVOOs

    The EVOOLEUM Guide of the TOP100 World’s Best EVOOs recognized in the EVOOLEUM Awards, an International Quality Competition for Extra Virgin Olive Oils called by these two entities to be delivered each year in a different European capital.

    The initiative, which began to take shape three years ago, will be released in 2016 based on three pillars: assurance, rigor and independence. In EVOOLEUM, the best tasters worldwide will rate every sample submitted, which will be sorted and characterized organoleptically. The results of the Competition will obtain each year a global diffusion through an exclusive Guide which will be presented in a careful detailed publication aimed at consumers, distribution and restaurateurs around the world.

    But what is EVOOLEUM? Primarily it intends to be a useful tool and 100% reliable for the consumer and international olive sector, consisting of a list of the 100 World’s Best Extra Virgin Olive Oils, obtained from the most rigorous, objective and independent process of valuation and classification based on encryption keys that scrupulously respect the rules established by the International Olive Council (IOC) and ensure that the most fruity, balanced and harmonious juices will be classified.

    Thus, a group of renowned worldwide expert tasters will be responsible for conducting the evaluation of the organoleptic quality of the EVOOs submitted to the contest each campaign (the first, 2015/16), originating the exclusive World’s TOP100 EVOOs in its different categories and geographical areas.

  • Argali is the Name of the New Superior Organic Olive Oil from Greece

    The olives are so many and so beautiful, they are ripe at the right point and, thanks to the rains last month, their pulp is soft and swollen.
    A new harvesting season starts in middle of November. We are very excited and look forward soon to taste the New Superior Organic Olive Oil Argali!

    His name is Giovanni Bianchi and he is a small organic olive oil producer in Gargalianoi (Messinia), Greece.

    After years of insistence by relatives and friends, finally the birth of the brand “ARGALI” to enable people who seek quality in nutrition and respect for the environment to buy their superior organic olive oil.

    In 2015 the EVOO produced by Giovanni Bianchi achieved a “Diplome Gourmet” at AVPA Paris and a distinction in the international competition “L’Orciolo D’Oro”.

    In a few words about Argali Organic Olive Oil

    argaki_01Giovanni Bianchi comments:
    Thank you for giving us a little of your time. We are going to show you who we are, what we do and our product : organic olive-oil.

    Few years ago we coincidentally get involved with the Greece and strongly linked to his history, natural beauties and obviously, we immediately loved one of his best product: the olive’s oil.

    We strongly believe in an full organic approach to food production, against the money profit ideal on which is founded the actually way to make business. We are trying to adapt the protection of natural resources, the respect of nature, a not invasive and unnaturally way of production with our desire to offer you our final product.

    What we do

    Our work is in progress, since we are a young company, our target is not the profit but instead the great chance to share with you our superior organic olive oil. We got almost 200 olive trees in Gargaliani. In our olive grove no fertilizers, pesticides or weed killers are used whatsoever.

    Since 2007 we are certified BioHellas, the most important greek “Inspection and Certification body for organic products”. The soil is fertilized with olive leaves retrieved from the olive mill and the olive trees are not watered.

    ravdoThe olive trees of the Koroneiki variety are perfectly adapted to the dry climate and rocky terrain. The fruits are very small, black and green and are very dense clusters on the branches. While the usual olive oil yield is approximately 10 liters per tree, in our cultivation the trees produce only 2 to 5 liters of the purest green extra virgin olive oil. We deliberately sacrifice quantity to produce the best quality oil with a very light ecological footprint.

    Harvest time is in November and December and the olives are pressed within 12 hours of harvesting to ensure very low acidity. Pressing takes place at 27 degrees Celsius so that the oil maintains its aroma and a large amount of polyphenols (natural antioxidants).

    Where we are

    Our olive grove is in Gargaliani, Messenia. Gargaliani is a small town in the west Peloponnese, situated on a small rising that overlooks a vast valley of olives.

    This beautiful view of green olive groves contrasts with the deep blue of the sea, and in the background there is the picturesque island of Proti. This is the area where Nestor, King of Pilo and one of the Argonauts reigned, and to whom Telemaco turned, when he was searching for his father Ulysses, after the Trojan War.

    For anyone looking for a healthy food and unique taste. Our Organic Olive Oil is ARGALI is ready for you!telara

  • Greece will have a prominent role at the WOOE thanks to Gaea Products

    The organizers of the World Olive Oil Exhibition are happy to announce that Aris Kefalogiannis will be one of the key speakers at our Cycle of Conferences on March 2016. The importance of such a professional is that he is not only a successful entrepreneur who has created Gaea, the main international Greek food and olive oil brand, but he is also an ambassador of the Greek food industry and olive oil sector.

    Aris Kefalogiannis managed to lead Gaea in major international markets to the number one Greek brand, gaining numerous international awards for product quality and taste, while Gaea’s extra virgin olive oils are the 1st Carbon Neutral Olive Oils worldwide. Gaea was awarded with the 2013 Import/Export category at the European Business Awards, the 1st Greek company ever to be awarded at this prestigious competition.

    GAEA_EVOO_DOP_KALAMATA_greentubeGaea products are exported to 26 countries, including the USA, Germany, the UK, Russia, and Norway.

    Aris Kefalogiannis is the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Greek Confederation of Olive Oil Industries (SEVITEL) and, it is worth noting that he is also an Olympic champion with the Greek national water polo team, at the Los Angeles Olympics, held in 1984 (ranked 7th place); he also participated in the Moscow (1980) and Seoul (1988) Olympic Games.

    During a recent interview in the renowned magazine Olive Oil Times, Kefalogiannis analyzed and reflected upon some of the key features that are setting the critical current situation of his country, Greece, and its businesspeople. “Production and exports have continued without interruption during the financial crisis, even after banks were closed and capital controls imposed, with Gaea introducing a new olive oil and olive pack line in the United States on July 13”.

    Kefalogiannis says Gaea is not delaying anything during the crisis: “The target is to keep serving our clients every day; this is the most important thing. As long as we manage to do that, we are aware that we will be healthy and alive as a company. Our emphasis on crisis management is to continue operating and loading our orders”.

    Kefalogiannis suggests that “three pillars” could be central to an economic recovery: 1) the Greek diet, 2) tourism, including culinary tourism, and 3) shipping. “No matter how far you look into Greek history, you will see that olive oil dominates our diet. It is the basis of the Mediterranean diet, and all scientists attest to its benefits”. Featuring traditional Greek products, Gaea has been helping to introduce the traditional diet of Greece to the world, both as part of Mediterranean cuisine and in terms of its unique healthy features.
