Peritos Trading proudly introduces PERITOS brand Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Extra virgin olive oil being the highest grade of olive oil requires more of just having olive trees. It requires knowledge of how to harvest and handle the delicate fruit and how to press it to obtain the best quality and flavor. But more than that it requires a specific latitude, moisture, temperature, rain, a light breeze at a specific time of the maturing cycle and of course sunrays. Lots of sunrays. You can find all that in southern Greece where our extra virgin olive oil comes from and where 70 % of the olive oil produced is of the world's finest extra virgin variety.

 

Regarded since antiquity as an integral part of Mediterranean culture olive oil has played a symbolic as well as a dietary role in Western and Hellenic Culture. In addition to its health benefits Peritos Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the choice of many connoisseurs looking of a robust, fruity, authentic oil flavor because it comes straight from the tree. It has not been mixed with anything else or any other olive oil and nothing else is added. Peritos Extra Virgin Olive Oil is what extra virgin olive oil should be and should be measured against. Its chemical indicators are way below FDA limits in addition to its authentic flavor and aroma.

 

The Peritos family has been cultivating and making a living out of olive trees in the southwestern island of Zakynthos in Greece for as long as anyone on our family remembers. We know our olive oil. As a small child I remember my Grandfather taking me to our olive groves. He would gently touch the trees, the leaves the fruit, he would examine it carefully, and he would pull a handful of olives on his palms and then turn and say to me. "Our family does not have any gold like other families do, but this is our gold, donít you ever forget it". This then is our gold present to you. Enjoy it!

 

The Peritos family own olive groves along with other small farmers who have not adopted the high yield growing and production techniques so prevailing elsewhere produce our extra virgin olive oil The olives are still hand picked and hand processed. And because we are buying directly from producers in addition to be producers and importers ourselves we are able to offer it at a lower price and pass on the savings to you.

 

That what is unique about Peritos Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It will consistently be of very high quality, availability and priced below its value. This is a pledge and a promise!
