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.
Just a note on the upcoming harvest. This past summer unlike what we experienced here in Geneva and also in the rest of Northern Europe, there was very little rainfall in Southern Europe.
Forecasts are for a substantial drop in the harvest, with Greece alone talking about 20% to 30% less yield.
To further complicate matters, many mature trees in Spain were felled earlier in 2021 due to low prices.
In addition, the costs of all materials such as glass bottles, cans, cardboard boxes but also transport have increased significantly. With tin increasing in price by over 60% alone if you can even get it. There is also a shortage of glass bottles.
So prices next year will go up that’s for sure. We just don’t know by how much yet.
Our recommendation is to stock up now before prices go up.
Properly stored in a dark and cool place in our glass bottles or cans, you will be able to enjoy our oil until the end of 2022 at least!
All of our containers are recyclable – we respect the environment!
