We have been in the olive oil processing business since 1970.

The aroma and taste of freshly harvested olives has been imprinted in our memories dating back to our childhood. After the welcoming of every autumn we experienced the process of this blessed fruit from its harvest to the extraction stage.

We prune the trees and plough the soil in the traditional manner in order to yield with total deference while respecting the environment and exploitation of the land. Our priority being defined by the stubborn refusal to use pesticides or any chemical aids. Our privately owned olive groves which fundamentally cultivate ATHINAIKI, KLONARA, MEGARITIKI, MANAKI, KORONAIKI, ARBEKINA and PIGUAL varieties, lie between abundant areas of Attiki such as Kalivia, Kouvara and Olympos.

The harvesting of fruit takes place paying particular attention to maintaining the trees intact over time,without undue trauma,while transferring early fruit to our mill for cold extraction processing.

So somewhere between our love of the most precious,oldest tree on the planet came the birth of PROTOGENES appropriately named,defined as primary production,straight from nature and KONSTAS our family name. Utilising our secrets and professional simplicity, two premium oils were born.

From their debut appearance at competitions quality indexes soared and the highest distinctions were undisputedly awarded.

This has made us feel particularly proud,on the other hand it has increased our responsibility. A family promise? To spread the experience of customised oil to every corner of the world.

Πιθανόν ο δρόμος του Ελληνικού Ελαιολάδου να είναι περίπλοκος και αγκαθωτός. Ωστόσο, διαθέτοντας τον άκρατο ενθουσιασμό, τις απαραίτητες γνώσεις μας και κυρίως το σεβασμό προς τον ίδιο, τον ευλογημένο αυτό καρπό, μπορεί τελικά αυτός ο δρόμος, να μην είναι και τόσο δύσβατος... 

Αυτό, μας κάνει να νιώθουμε ιδιαίτερη περηφάνια, αλλά και ταυτόχρονα μια αυξημένη ευθύνη. Οικογενειακή μας υπόσχεση; Η προσπάθεια να ταξιδέψουμε τις εμπειρίες μας, προσωποποιημένες στο χρώμα του ελαιολάδου, σε κάθε μακρινή γωνιά του Γης μας.
