Our philosophy

 

Our thanks to Arysteon for entrusting us to be represent them in Bulgaria with one of the best olive oils in the world.

 

We’ ll work for people successful in one or other area, but with one thing the same: the high intellect.

 

We’ ll show, that filling the truck with some substances during Mediterranean voyages is not good idea, sometimes even can be noxious.

 

We appeal for stronger control by the Bulgarian authorities, according to when some product is called BIO. BIO products must be BIO for real, and everyone who is cheating with this must be punished severely.

 

We know that a client can be cheated only once and we do not cheat.

 

We believe that the good food is the healthy one.

 

We stand the position not of the manipulated food industry but of the small crafter who’ s making the real Extra Virgin olive oil.

 

We are happy to take a ride in the world of the olive oils, opening all senses to the rich past of this product, all the time marked with wars for control over the plants.

 

 

Our history

 

Extra Virgin is a new – built company. We have store in Sofia, district Lozenec, 10 Milin Kamak str. , and the online store on our website ExtraVirgin.BG. Mainly we entrust the direct people – to – people marketing and tto the fact, that once tasted, our olive oil becomes necessary to taste again and again. Do not spare it, pour amply and you receive health and joy back.

 

The idea came spontaneously during our last culinary voyage in the Greek lands. We were charmed by the beauty of the Castaway Bay and Zakynthos island, and the local olive oil just took our hearts for the so called by Omir and Hippocrates “liquid gold” like never before.

 

Guided by curiosity and with the priceless help of our friend Pepe we investigated the way olive oil is made – from the restaurant to the factory in Aristeon, visited the museum and got familiar with the owners. Everything then was easy as it always happens when in front of you stand serious and professional people. And, as many locals and some experts say – the best olive oil in the worls, is already in Bulgaria.

 

The history of Aristeon

 

Aristeon – pressing of olive sfor olive oil is a family business, dating as early as the year of 1850. In the very beginning pressing is processed by stone press rolled by donkeys. Part of this press is still in the museum of Aristeon as you can see in our gallery. Later the stone is replaced by metal, and now with hydraulic press.

 

The product comes from own ancestral olive forest with two breeds of olives: koroneiki and dopia. The olive oil from the second breed is treated as culinary curiosity, as only 5% of the olive plants on Zakynhos are Dopia breed.

 

The modern vision of Aristeon dates from 2008 accordingly to the modern technologies and the new requirements.

 

The olive mill is certified by TUV Hellas with the food safety system accordingly to  ISO 22000: 2005. Along with this all stages of manufacture are controlled by the organization for control of producing of Bio products D.I.O.
