Award-winning olive mill
Our olive mill is a regional hub, offering services to several thousand small olive farmers. It is located in Neapoli (“New Town”), at the center of Mirambello Valley. The mill has five international quality and food safety certifications for both organic extra virgin and conventional extra virgin olive oil. The Vassilakis olive mill is fully-integrated and has won awards for sustainability and agrotourism.
The olives are pressed the same day of harvest and their oil - which is actually fresh olive juice - is stored in airtight stainless steel silos, until ready for individual bottling. There is a separate, parallel system for pressing, storing and bottling certified organic olive oil. Our investment in modern technology, hygiene standards, and stringent testing, allows us to produce and store quantities of superior quality extra virgin and organic extra virgin olive oils. And we make sure this quality goes into every bottle that leaves the mill, as it begins its journey to your table. We were thrilled to see our hard work officially recognized in 2013 by winning the “Best Greek olive oil producer and bottler” award.
