The Health Heritage of the Olive
In the Mediterranean culture the olive has been considered sacred for over 4.000 years. Ancient Greek myths tell of how Athena, goddess of wisdom, bestowed upon mankind her divine gift - the olive tree. From this rugged and beautiful tree we get 3 basic varieties: 1. Green olives from the Chalkidiki or Amphissa regions.
2. The Kalamata "almond" shapped with an arched top olives
3. The Black natural ripened olives.
The rediscovery of Mediterranean diet among the healthy and culinary worlds has confirmed the ancient wisdom of Greek culture. People in the Mediterranean areas have a lower Incidence of heart disease, and enjoy a longer life, largerly due to the benefits of their olive-based diet.
INTERCOMM olives are selected from the highest quality olives produced in Greeces best olive growing plants, from the island of Crete to Kalamata, Amphissa and the holy places of Chalkidiki. Harvested and transported immediately to our plant in Larissa, they are processed using the latest equipment, in order to reach your table fresh, hygienic and full of rich flavour. The collection of the olive fruit, that is intended for table purposes, is a very difficult and time consuming process, as every olive is picked from the trees by naked hands, as it was done thousands of years ago by the ancient Greek olive collectors.

PITTING & STUFFING PLANT: At this stage, the fermented olives are either sliced, pitted or stuffed with several delicious stuffings as almond, garlic, pepper paste, natural red Florinis pepper, sun dried tomato, cheese, and other fillings.
OXIDATION PLANT: Here olives are transferred to an independent area into the oxidation tanks, where they gain their characteristic black colour and their distinctive sweet taste.
PASTEURISATION PLANT: olives are hygienically, packaged in either glass jars or cans.Our factory has 2 independent production lines either for glass production or cans, passing various inspection controls until their final packing destination.
