The present cannot be understood without the past. By telling you about our roots, we take you on a trip back in time through the history of a civilization that introduced us to the extraordinary olive tree: the ancient Greeks.

Present in Asia Minor and Syria since 5,000 B.C., the olive tree was valued for its noble properties. The oil that was extracted at that time was used mainly for preserving food and as fuel to illuminate and heat houses and cities.
