MFSA/Olea Groves is a Greek company located in Maroussi, Greece. Its driving force is a group of passionate, hard working people, whose common goal is to promote a complete range of supreme quality local agro-organic products in the foreign markets. Olea Juice™ is the brand name of MFSA's superior extra virgin olive oil that has finally reached Olea Groves expectations. Olea groves is located in the southern part of Greece, Peloponnese a region with a very long history in olive oil production, also known for its calcareous soils, limestone slopes and steep cliffs, as well as its ideal coastal climate. For several centuries, our 80 acres of fertile land has been hosting thousands of fruitful olive trees which are cultivated under our care, following the strict rules of traditional farming.
Among MFSA's 6,000 trees, from the varieties (cultivars) Manaki and Koroneiki, there are 200 that are at least 2,000 years old. Annually and depending on weather conditions, the fruits of a selected number of trees from the Manaki variety display black spots on their skin that are globally unique.During harvest, after the hand picking and sorting of the olive fruit a unique process begins at the oil-mill. This process starts with the washing of the fruit and continues with a procedure where special knives remove the skin. The reason behind the removal of the skin stands on the common truth that even though we do not spray our trees with pesticides, what is carried by the wind from the nearby farms or groves cannot be controlled. Thus, MFSA has created this method which is the most efficient in terms of cleansing the fruit. The olive juice is cold extracted without its pits solely by mechanical means in a 3-phase centrifugation at approximately 19° C (66.2° F) – instead of the usual 27°C – securing the olive oil’s quality, texture and aromas.Olea Groves has won at least 18 internationa awards in International Olive oil competitions.
