Yet another distinction for our products worldwide
KORONEIKI, one of our best products worldwide receives yet another recognition of its unsurpassed quality by winning another Gold Medal, in the LAIOOC World Olive Oil Competition Los Angeles 2020, held this January in Los Angeles. Also, another of our exquisite products: LADELIA EVOO, won a Bronze Medal in the same competition.
All of our EVOOs are pressed from Koroneiki olives, and from groves located in the wider area of Laconia, Peloponnese. The wonderful and rare taste and texture of the specific olives is the reason they are characterized as “queen” olives, enabling us to produce a very commendable final product. The harvest starts early when the olives are unripe, small and green. Unripe olives are the reason our oil is low in acidity, and at the same time rich in antioxidants and polyphenols. The high nutritional ingredients of our olive oil strengthen the immune system of our body and help us to function better.The oil from Koroneiki olives, has a light spicy taste with a smooth finish and is slightly bitter.
