Product History
Extra virgin olive oil is the purest form of oil that comes straight from the olive trees, without having undergone industrial processing. It has a strong fruity taste and the distinct aroma of freshly cut olives. A pleasant bitterness and a short- term burning sensation in the esophagus can be present. With a striking 75% of Greek olive oil production to be extra virgin, Greece holds the first position worldwide in its production. Expressed in oleic acid, Extra Virgin Olive oil is the olive oil whose acidity does not exceed 0.8%. Acidity is one of the main criteria for the olive oil quality and the lower the acidity, the higher the quality.

GAEA
Gaea was founded in 1995. Our name didn’t come about by accident; in ancient Greek mythology, Gaea was Mother Earth—a symbol of fertility and the goodness of the earth. As such, our vision has been to introduce the world to the benefits of the Greek Mediterranean diet by combining exquisite Greek products based on olive oil with our penchant for tradition and simplicity. Gaea is much more than elegantly-packaged wholesome foods and fine ingredients. It is a genuine philosophy of life, at the core of which is a deep appreciation for nature. We’ve always favoured non-aggresive harvesting over large volumes and high yields. And although we invest heavily in research and employ cutting-edge technology, we never stray too much from time-honoured practices. Our goal is to become international ambassadors not just of top-quality olive oil products, but of a better, healthier, more fulfilling way of eating—and living.

Lasithi

The prefecture of Lasithi in the eastern part of the beautiful and hospitable island of Crete has a long history. This is reflected in its magnificent archaeological sites and remarkable monuments - ancient shrines and city ruins, Minoan settlements, palaces, fortresses and last but not least, its Byzantine monasteries. Lasithi is not only rich in natural beauty, but also has captivating contrasts - the massive mountains add a wild beauty to the area, acres of green fertile plains and picturesque villages. However, one should never forget to mention the majestic palm forest of “Vai” and the dreamlike sandy beaches which overflow with sunbathers and nature lovers throughout the year, especially during the summer months.
