THE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL


We care about remarkable quality and taste when it comes to producing a culinary staple. We produce with love and care. 

from the origin of olive oil with love.

We choose the fresh fruits from age-old olive trees in our groves that are cultivated, nurtured and locally collected in their natural environment. Our freshly-pressed olive oil (with low acidity level and excellent organoleptic properties) is produced at room temperature in order to obtain the unique aroma of the olives given by the rich soil of the region as well as to preserve natural antioxidants. 

 Moreover, we bring you this exquisite taste from the true origin of olive oil... Orontes d’Antioch is brought to life with respect to the long history and tradition of olive oil production in the ancient land of Antioch.

FACILITIES

The facility was built on an 8,000 square meter area surrounded by hundreds of thousands of olive trees. It has an annual production capacity of 10,000 mt, of which 55% is exported to other countries.

We adopt  a superior quality conception by testing and analyzing the hand-picked olives (that are cultivated in a way that is natural and without pesticides) in our well-equipped laboratory. We apply continuous quality assurance and quality certification practices which incorporate an integrated system of controls at all stages of production.

We consider ecological awareness an obligation, therefore, our factory’s operations comply with all measures and standards ensuring protection of the environment.

PROCESS

We choose the fresh fruits from age-old olive trees in our grove that are cultivated, nurtured and locally collected in their natural and organic environment. We use a first cold press method in order to obtain the unique aroma of the olives given by the rich soil of the region as well as to preserve natural antioxidants.

Our freshly-pressed olive oil (with low acidity level and excellent organoleptic properties) is produced at room temperature and stored in stainless steel tanks to ensure that all the nutrients present in the olive are living and therefore intact. Thus, we are able to offer you a product of excellent taste and the highest quality, while preserving all the beneficial ingredients of olives. 

PACKAGING

While offering a drop of the exquisite ‘liquid gold’ from the crops of a mysterious land to our valued customers, our dedication to antiquity and quality is reflected in our packaging.

It is a well known fact that olive oil is susceptible to rancidity when exposed to air, light and heat. To minimize air contact and exposure to light, our delicately processed organic olive oil is preserved in dark-tinted glass bottles. In addition, both our olive oil and soaps are placed in hand-made wooden boxes crafted by a local artisan.

All materials used in packaging are organic and recyclable as an attribute of our ecological awareness policy.

from the origin of oil


We are here to rewake this forgotten land in the Mediterranean and share our love of olive oil.

Historians acknowledge that the olives were first cultivated in the Eastern part of the Mediterranean, in the region known as the “fertile crescent,” and moved westwards over the millennia. As the first western outpost of the Great Silk Road and a major trade city for the Roman Empire, Antioch was exploited to be the center of olive oil production before olive trees were planted in the entire Mediterranean basin under Roman rule. Even after the fall of the Roman Empire, olive oil production remained as a tradition in Antioch where many families have earned their living from olive cultivation.

Based on the core principle of producing a high quality product while remaining dedicated to the traditional history and values of Antioch’s olive oil production, we took on the challenge to offer these superior olive oil products with distinctive production and packaging techniques that match their purity, specialty and intrinsic value.

While presenting a drop of the exquisite ‘liquid gold’ from the crops of a mysterious land to our valued customers, our dedication to antiquity, traditional workmanship and community support is reflected in every stage of our production process. Our olive oil and soaps are packaged in hand-made wooden boxes crafted by a local artisan. We provide year-round employment to women (who help hand-pick our olives and craft our beautiful olive oil soaps) to help them to pursue their dreams and build a better life for themselves and their families.
