“Show your hospitality to your guests by sharing bread & olives…”
A tradition demonstrating the importance of olives in Greek culture.
“Sativa Olive Culture” was founded in 1997 in Molaoi (Laconia, Peloponnese) motivated by the love for the “olive civilization” & the deep-rooted belief that a healthy human relationship with the land, nature & its products leads to a better quality of life. They chose a region full of olive groves where the “Kalamata” variety is mainly cultivated. So, they work inside their natural environment “cultivating” a different relationship with the land. They exclusively select olives, from Peloponnese (Kalamata) & Halkidiki (Green), that are grown in perfect soil & climate conditions, a choice that is reflected to the unique taste, aroma & texture of their products.
“Kalamata olive” is the most famous Greek variety that has been recognised worldwide as one of the best naturally processed black olives. At “Sativa Olive Culture” the natural process demands the fruit to stay for around 6 months in tanks with brine in order to debitter & ferment. It is a blessed fruit of the Mediterranean region with superior organoleptic characteristics due to its crisp flesh & excellent taste but also due to the lots of beneficial properties.
