Our certified olive oil of the “Koroneiki” variety is produced from hundreds of olive trees, from our land in Logga, Messinia (Kalamata region) in Greece.
Our local farmers, the KASIMIOTIS family take care of our “Koroneiki” olive trees all year round and produce our excellent oil.
Castaway Greek Olive Oil is harvested between November and February each year depending on rainfall. Once picked, the olives are immediately cleaned and cold pressed. After a 40-50 day resting period, the oil is ready to be bottled.
Because together with our local partner we control the whole process, we can guarantee the excellent quality of our product all year round.
We only stock the filtered variety which is suitable for both cooking and salads.
But try it with just freshly baked bread and a pinch of salt and you’ll be convinced.
As you may be aware of, olive harvests have been very bad for the last couple of seasons. Whilst Spain recovered somewhat, Greece has been really badly affected with yields down by 60 to 70%. And you can imagine what that has done to prices.
Supermarket prices in Greece are now at a level that we used to pay here in Switzerland.
And with all other costs also going up we had to raise our prices also.
Properly stored in a dark and cool place in our glass bottles or cans, you will be able to enjoy our oil until spring 2025 at least!
All our containers are recyclable – we respect the environment!
