Moria Elea Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml
Moria Elea extra virgin olive oil, offers a full story behind the brand based on Greek mythology that indicates its origin and attributes. The myth of Moria Elea express a very important legend regarding birth of the first olive tree.
By promoting the myth, Moria Elea’s intention is to familiriaze consumers with greek history and to promote superiority of greek products through a premium brand’s success.
During king Cecrops’ reign, Athena became the patron goddess of the city of Athens in a competition with Poseidon which Cecrops judged. They agreed that each would give the Athenians one gift, and Cecrops would choose whichever gift they preferred.
Poseidon struck the rock of the Acropolis with his trident and a spring sprang up; the water was salty and was not thought very useful, whereas Athena struck the rock with her lance and an olive tree sprung up. Cecrops judged the olive tree to be the superior gift, for the olive tree brought wood, oil and food, and consequently accepted Athena as their patron.
They called this olive tree “Moria Elea” . Visitors at the Acropolis museum in Athens, can see the sculptures which represents the myth on the west side of Parthenon.
“Moria Elea was the first olive tree that Goddess Athena, protector of the city of Athens, planted outside the Parthenon on the Acropolis, according to Greek Mythology.”
According to soil, water and leaf analysis and with the guidance of an expertised team from the agricultural univerisity of Athens we implement the best and safest methods of growing .
At the right stage of olive’s life circle, we begin harvesting. We implement hand-picking methods where the fruit is put into specialized plastic containers which allow the air to keep the fruit fresh at an acceptable temperature.
Carry out the fruit at the oil press every four (4) hours, where olive oil is produced with the cold extraction method (<27 C). The first samples are sent for analysis and organoleptic assesment for approval of the final product before storing.
Stored in a cool, dark state of the art inox container, we are insured constant temperature control due to the cool-heat unit attached to the containers. Furthermore, containers have nitrogen filling in order to preserve olive oil in the best way.
