EVGE, a Greek olive oil company specializing in extra virgin olive oil, olives, and olive paste, has announced the launch of their products in the United States.
EVGE’s Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil are produced from Koroneiki olives from the famed Peloponnese region of Greece. The olives are hand harvested and then cold pressed immediately in order to ensure that their nutritional attributes are maintained in addition to having low acidity, balanced taste, rich texture and a vibrant aroma.
In discussing the company’s long-term plans for the American market, CEO and Managing Director Mr. John Papageorgiou said, “America has begun to embrace the Mediterranean-Greek diet. We at EVGE couldn’t be happier to supply the very staple of this healthy diet; premium quality olive oil. Healthy cooking and eating begins with olive oil and EVGE produces some of the finest in the world. We offer premium quality at affordable prices. Our company’s name translated from Greek is ‘exceptionally done’, and for us, it’s not just a name but our inspiration.”
