Ol-eve. Your Healthy Indulgence
Welcome to the Faros Estate -- a 247-acre peninsula on the picturesque western edge of the Greek island of Lesvos, close to the famous village of Sigri, an awarded Natura destination. The estate has been cared for by the same family for generations, and it’s here that Ol-eve grows some of the best produce from Greece and around the world.
We tend and harvest what Mother Nature has to offer. And boy, is she generous to us (!). From our estate’s 20,000 olive trees, 12,000 pomegranate shrubs, and 5,000 fig trees, we select only the finest specimens for our Ol-eve products. But we don’t just source what naturally grows on our doorstep: we also cultivate high quality foods that are native to other Greek regions, as well as an array of different fruits and plants from more exotic locations; including palm trees, lotuses, avocadoes -- even an African ‘Viagra’ tree (!).
Agro-tourism is big here too. The estate also boasts a chicken farm and a vegetable farm -- filled with pumpkins, aubergines, and tomatoes. And did we mention our rose garden? (!)
A fusion of the exotic, organic, and yet still discerningly Greek, the Faros Estate is a very unique place with a special character of its own that’s completely in harmony with the environment. It’s filled with fragrant local flora such as cistus, thyme, lavender, anise, oregano… and so much more, enhancing its wild unspoiled beauty. But regardless of where our produce hails from (our own or partner estates), it’s grown by professional farmers and prepared with care in quality-controlled production facilities.
Our best-known products are essential ingredients in our daily diets, but we make sure they’re every bit as good as authentic delicatessen foods: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Olives, Dried Figs, Dried Tomatoes, Natural Sea Salt, Honey, Pomegranate Sauce; as well as other goods such as Tomato Sauces, Jams and Marmalades, Mountain Tea, and Bottargo.
Respect plays a big part in our world. Everything we do -- from the way we harvest and process; even down to the bulk and retail packaging we use -- is carried out to the highest standards. We’re committed to sustainability. It’s more than a company value; it’s embedded in our expertise. Our organic products are BioHellas certified. No additives or preservatives here -- we’re dedicated to wellness, health, education, sustainability, and growth. But a nutritious diet shouldn’t compromise on taste. Our mission is to provide the best of everything: food that tastes great, and is good for you.
We keep a close eye on international regulations and food-focused technology, and closely monitor new discoveries and official claims -- such as polyphenols in olive oil. Our dedicated team includes a number of experienced food technologists who ensure that the nutritional properties of our products are correctly preserved.
We can also devise new flavors and ingredients, to enrich our existing recipes. We’re happy to cooperate with exceptional brands whose goods complement our own, so we’ll always consider joint and private label contracting arrangements on our products.
