Greece is the third largest producer of olive oil in the world. The majority of olive oil produced in Greece is extra virgin olive oil.
Greek honey is considered the best in the world. A wide biodiversity of flora combined with the Aegean summer sun is what helps produce this unique golden nectar.
Greece is famous for its unique herbs and spices so it is not surprising that Greek cuisine is all about herbs – their fragrance permeates every island.
Greek dried fruits and nuts are word class. The combination of strong summer sun with optimal soil conditions produces a sweet product that is unsurpassed.
WHY GREEK PRODUCTS
Greece is a land blessed with:
the best version of the already excellent Mediterranean climate (sunny summers and low temperature in winters), unique geological diversification with hundreds of islands, many peninsulas, high mountains and fertile valleys, combined with the fresh air from the sea and the sun, a surprisingly rich flora.
More than 7,500 different species of herbs, plants, wild flowers and trees (850 of them unique to Greece, many of them well-known since antiquity for their medicinal value), are responsible for producing some of the finest honeys in the world. In these perfect conditions and different micro climates grow up healthy olive trees of supreme taste and nutritional value and grapes that produce excellent quality wines.
For these reasons, along with tradition, many of the Greek food products are considered to be unique in terms of taste and nutritional characteristics.
A Taste of Greece
Greece enjoys a huge variety of agricultural products. Olives and olive oil, cheeses, wines, mastic and saffron are but a few of the products that have won international acclaim as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and received important distinctions for their quality and particularly delectable characteristics. These are a result not only of the richness of Greek soil, but also the passion and traditional knowledge handed down through the generations to their producers.
Greece ranks among the first in the EU, regarding the list of agricultural products registered as protected designation of origin (PDO), protected geographical indication (PGI) or Traditional Specialty Guaranteed (TSG) products, with approximately 94 entries. These products are olive oils, table olives, cheese, honey, fruits, vegetables, cereals, bread, pastry, fish and related products, other products of animal origin, gums and natural resins, essential oils and other products.
I am so happy I discovered you guys!
Thank you for your food. It’s so fresh and delicious and it takes the work and guess-work out of my busy life when it comes to eating.
I have tried to find olive oil similar in quality and flavor, but I always keep coming back to Greek Olive Oil. The flavor is incredible.
