The authentic Kalamata olives from Greenland are prepared according to a traditional recipe. The manufacturing process starts right after collecting the olive fruits, which are picked by hand. In order to remove the bitterness from them, they are stored in water, which is changed daily. This way the fresh taste of the olive fruit is preserved.

After this process is complete, the olives are placed in a brine made from water, salt and natural vinegar as well as local herbs such as savory, thyme, rosemary and oregano. Neither preservatives nor coloring agents are used.

The Kalamata olives are available in PET containers of 500g, 1kg or 5kg (the latter are not pasteurized, please read our Notes regarding storage).

Olive products from Messenia are recognized as a regional specialty and carry the protected designation of origin „Kalamata PDO“.
