Elaion is a Hellenic pioneering company, founded in 2004, with the sole purpose of developing and establishing one of nature’s finest culinary products:

The exceptional, early harvest, Hellenic olive oil. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our customers by offering outstanding products through the most effective services and ensuring that the final consumer enjoys the finest olive oil. In addition to the choicest olive varieties, continual laboratory and quality assurance tests throughout all stages guarantee the uniqueness of our extra virgin olive oils. A Matter of Quality: Early Harvest Olives reach their full size in the fall but may not fully ripen until late winter. Harvesting of olives at an early stage of maturity captures their full, strong taste and fruity flavours whilst the olive oil retains more of its polyphenols, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals.Early harvest olive oil has far better organoleptic and chemical properties so remains extra virgin for longer period while its content in valuable ingredients declines more gradually.Green unripe olives have less olive oil and thus the produced olive oil is far more costly.As such, it is very rare to find early harvest olive oil in a bottle. Instead, it is bought in bulk by the industry and blended with late harvest or even worse, with previous years’ oils in order to improve inferior varieties. Early harvest olive oil is a quality above all extra virgin olive oils known from ancient greek times as έλαιον (“e lai ón”)
