The rich soils,
the wonderful mild
Mediterranean climate,
and the sun shining
almost 300 days a year,
is what makes Greek
olives so special.
Olives are among the
oldest known cultivated
trees in the world-
being grown before
the written language was
invented, sometime between
6,000 and 7,000 years ago.
Olive oil and olives are the
basis of the Mediterranean diet
which was listed by UNESCO
as an Intangible
World Cultural Heritage
in November 2010!
