Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The main objective of VI.EL.THA. is the production of "Cardiofilo" and "Chrysolado" olive oils. The characteristics of the olive oil we produce are its thin texture and its yellow (golden) colour. You can read elsewhere in our website that these features are due to the olive variety from which we produce our olive oil.
Another feature of our olive oil is the low levels of saturated fatty acids (which are bad for our health) and the high levels of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are the good and health protecting fatty acids.

This compound prevents our olive oil from freezing when is kept in the refrigerator.

chrisbottleskardbottlesCardiofilo is an extra virgin olive oil produced exclusively on the island of Thassos from organically cultivated olive trees of local variety. Our olive oil has higher concentration in elements due to the fact that the olive plantations are not intensively cultivated. As a result, its colour is dull and demonstrates the density of its components. Available in bottle packaging type Marasca of 250ml, 500ml, 750ml, and in containers of 3000 and 5000ml.

Chrysolado is an extra virgin olive oil produced exclusively on the island of Thasos from conventionally cultivated olive trees of a local variety. Available in bottle packaging type Marasca of 250ml, 500ml, 750ml, and in containers of 3lt and 5lt.

Edible Olives and Olive Paste

altThe production of edible olives were driven to use methods from the past and nature, and our products to meet the nutritional needs of those who love the edible olive, but the doctor forbids them to eat salt for health or disease prevention.

The olives which our company produces are:

  1. The Green Smashed Olive or "KLASTADA."
  2. The Black Olive "Throumba of Thassos" of Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) 3. The unsalted Black Olive "Throumba of Thassos" (patent for the production of edible "unsalted" olive from Hellenic Industrial Property Organisation)

In the manufacturing process of edible olives we have used the principle of local production methods. So for the Green Smashed Olive (KLASTADA, name derives from the ancient Greek word "klazo" ie smash) the method we use to get the bitterness out is the stay of the olives in drinking water with frequent water changes, and then putting them in a little saline, that is acidic, with aromatic plants.

For the Black Olive "Throumba of Thassos", the mature olive production process is the same that had our ancestors, ie putting the olives in salt, draining the fluids and then washing them, so that the salt content is very small (2 -3%).

For the production of edible unsalted Black Olive "Throumba" we did the reproduction conditions of nature and thus have edible savory with 0% added salt. For this product we have gotten a patent from Hellenic Industrial Property Organisation.

Using all the tastefull types of edible olives we have an advanced production of excellent handmade Olive paste.

The pastes are available:

  1. Green olives
  2. Dry Black Olive "Throumba of Thassos"
  3. Unsalted Black Olive "Throumba of Thassos"
  4. Spicy Olive paste.

Fertilizer (compost)

A fundamental principle of our company is the respect for the environment and faith in the principles of sustainable development.

Therefore, we have placed special emphasis on the olive mill waste management by including in our investments the installation of a waste processing unit for converting waste into a compost (natural fertilizer), even though this investment is not profitable by modern means.

By olive processing, aside from olive oil, we also extract the olive pomace which consists
