We did the same this year by sending samples from the Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the Department of Pharmacy and the result was excellent, as the polyphenols, which is the indicator of the medicinal value of olive oil, were even more. Therefore we provide our customers with olive oil which offers them a wonderful taste and sensation in their food, but also protects them from various diseases. And that’s a double whammy for our business. ”
