Considered sacred in Greece, the olive tree is the first known cultivated tree with roots tracing back to 600 BC in the Mediterranean. A staple in every Greek household and a core part of the acclaimed Mediterranean Diet, Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is one of the most heart-healthy fats one can consume. Those who prize organic products will appreciate our organic EVOO. Minerva Organic Greek EVOO is prepared in strict compliance with organic farming standards: from the small family owned growers who cultivate and tend to the olive trees through the cold-pressing of the precious oil. We test our EVOO at Minerva laboratory, one of the 7 laboratories accredited by the International Olive Council. Thanks to Greece’s bright sunshine, sea breezes and rich soil, our organic EVOO has the pleasant aroma of freshly-cut olives, with an intense fruity flavor and a peppery finish. This versatile olive oil is ideal for drizzling on salads, vegetables, pasta, chicken, fish or seafood. A great substitute for butter or margarine, savor with warm bread or on corn on the cob.
