NOT JUST ANOTHER OLIVE OIL
Olive Waste...an ecological problem...
Did you know that around 100 million m3 of olive waste is dumped in nature?
With catastrophic consequences for the environment and a major headache for the EU climate plans.
The waste products derived from the olives in the pressing mills are mainly water, olive paste and leaves, ending up in seagulfs or other (ground) water circulations, damaging the environment and aquatic life.
Unfortunately EU is unable to enforce regulation and therefore many farmers in the mediterranean continue with traditional waste dump practices.
We are Elietsa. We are sustainable Olive Oil Makers.
We set a powerful new golden standard. Elietsa has chosen deliberately to unite Greek organic olive farmers and craft a new take for olive oil.
A new take and a new deal to wake up an apathetic industry and chain. To make olive oil, a superfood again, which it once was.
A superfood it is because of its health benefit. Backed by so many science studies.

We are game-changers, creating eco-logic in making olive oil
With a supertasty extra-virgin olive oil we have set a new '3x better' mission:
(1) A better, healthier extra-virgin olive oil for the world to enjoy.
(2) Introducing simple, science-based 'zero-waste' procedures and cultivation methods for the olives, contributing to a better climate.
(3) Our oils are delivered straight to your home or retail partners. This short chain better margins for the olive farms means we can keep innovating and working even more sustainable.
Its how we aim to make impact and we invite you to join our mission and support our motto 'Eat Well Live Well'!

Our sustainable, circular olive oil framework
While olive waste is a ecological problem with dramatic impact like desertification and the devastating forest fires.
Our solution: we work together with Greek scientists whom innovated an organic fertiliser from the olive mill waste and our olive farms give this back to our olive trees.
We work together with sustainable olive mills only. Solar energy, no chemicals and of course waste recycling contribute to a our sustainable olive oil framework
As new Olive Oil Makers we committed to this new methods of olive agriculture. Our goal: with circulair solutions set the norm for a minimal of ecological footprint. With our PLUS 1 campaign we strive to invite more yards to join in.
Fortunately organizations like the Global Olive Oil Awards organization in Berlin, do care. They awarded our circulair olive oils with 2 EVOO stars and recognized our new norm with an innovation award. It is a huge encouragement for us to continue the sustainable care of our planet.
