The Gkazas family from Crete, Greece
Our story begins in Crete under the trees of an olive grove. The olive grove of the Gkazas family. Gkazas originated from this fertile Cretan soil.Our story
Every winter we harvest our Cretan olives. First, we carefully tap them out of the tree by hand. The olives are collected in nets so that we can separate them from the leaves and branches. At the end of the day, all the harvested olives are brought to the press together in jute bags.
The olives are washed, ground and cold pressed the same day at a local presser on Crete. We immediately have organic extra virgin olive oil as the end result. A pure and honest family product full of taste and passion!
After a (considerable) period of self-filtering, the olive oil is bottled and transported by truck to the Netherlands. In the Netherlands we deliver the extra virgin olive oil with our own courier service by car or cargo bike.
