Quality is not a random fact but the result of supreme aim, sincere effort, genius guidance and skilful execution. It depicts the wise choice. It’s not just an action…..it’s a habit.
Organic and Wild
Wild Athos is produced by Golden Tree Olive Oil and Products of Olive Kalives Chalkidikis Zotou Aikaterini. Eleni (Zotou) is a sole proprietor or “one-woman business”, organic farmer of olive oil trees, and owner/producer of the Golden Tree brand of olive oil products.
Eleni Zotou harvests a small organic grove of old olive trees, located in mountainous Chalkidikis region in northern Greece, producing high phenolic extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) of high quality. The olive groves are unusual: located in protected Natura Areas, they contain wild and half-wild olive trees that are at least 350 years old.
Using an updated version of the traditional production process, Zotou and her colleagues carefully and respectfully avoid harming nature, thus producing EVOO with no residues of pesticides. The Golden Tree uses novel technologies and modern processes for the production and standardization of high phenolic olive oil in order to maximize the health benefits for the customer.
In order to provide excellent service and to ensure the health of the consumer, the company has ISO 9001, ISO 22000 and HACCP health certificates. The company’s activities are not limited to the Greek market but also extend abroad.
The results of the cultivation and production methodologies are reflected in the chemical analysis and certifications of the quality of Golden Tree products from Greek and international research centres and universities.
Golden Tree is a participant in the EU funded 3-year, 5-country Interreg Mediterranean project: ARISTOIL which purpose is – “Reinforcement of Mediterranean olive oil sector competitiveness through development and application of innovative production and quality control methodologies related to olive oil health protecting properties”,
Golden Tree EVOO “WILD ATHOS” received the Gold Award for two successive years (2016 & 2017) during the “Olympia Health & Nutrition Awards” for olive oil that meets or exceeds the requirements for the official EU health claim for olive oil, which are designated to contain more than 250 mg polyphenols per kg of olive oil. In fact, the premium product green olive oil “WILD ATHOS” of Golden Tree received more than 17 international awards during 2016-2017 for its health benefits, since it has been reported to contain more than 1000 mg polyphenols per kg of olive oil.
Recently (04/2017), the olive leaves from the Golden Tree olive grove have been also found to contain high concentration of oleuropein, approx. 12,2% w/w in dry base, which is the major antioxidant compound of the olive tree. The aforementioned denote that the olive oil by-products and side-streams of Golden Tree olive oil production are likely to contain significant quantities of antioxidant phenolic compounds, which render them suitable as feedstock for the AGROVANE (research facility studying the benefits of olive leaf) valorization value chain.
Zotou is shareholder, and elected member of the Board of Directors of the Olive Oil Cooperative of Polygiros (OOCP), in Chalkidikis , Greece, a modern three-phase processing olive oil facility that has all the necessary infrastructure for producing high quality olive oil. Zotou can thus provide AGROVANE partners with all the necessary side-streams and by-products from three-phase olive oil production for the AGROVANE valorization value chain.
