Olive Oil & Olives
The olive tree and its fruit, for some thousands of years, are the jewels of the greek land and the Greek – Mediterranean food. According to an ancient myth, Athens is the homeland of the olive tree. The first olive tree was planted by the goddess Athena herself, on the Acropolis Hill.
The ancient Greeks were the pioneers of the olive tree cultivation in the European – Mediterranean region. Since then, the olive tree represents the Olympic ideals, Peace, Wisdom and Victory.
The fruit of the olive tree and the olive oil are the most significant ingredients of the Mediterranean Diet, which is nowadays considered to be the most healthy diet.
