Producer Facts: EON is new Greece.

These small units are the backbone of EON’s production, with women from rural areas doing what they always did best: handcrafting taste.

 

Product Facts: EON extra virgin olive oil stands out with a well-balanced medium spicy flavor and an intense fruity aroma.

The quality of the olive fruit’s juice varies according to the subsoil, the variety of trees, the cultivation, the harvesting and the production. For the EON olive oil creation, certified growers- producers were chosen from the fertile land of Crete. The whole region of Crete consists a vast olive grove. The favorable climate, sunlight, terrain, as well as the individual producers’ farming techniques practiced at their modern mills result in EON extra virgin olive oil production.
