Athanasia Papadantonaki is among the first to adopt sustainable, organic Olive tree cultivation technics.

She is also a passionate farmer that has greatly contributed to preserving the tradition of Olive tree cultivation on the island of Crete.

Olive tree is the most popular tree in the Mediterranean. With its cultivation going back as far as the Minoan era, the Olive tree is the sacred tree of ancient and modern Greece -a long-standing symbol of peace, longevity and prosperity.

Crete has a century-old tradition in this specific cultivation, and the prevailing Koroneiki variety. With valleys at the foothills of mountains but also very close to the sea, Crete has the ideal combination of microclimate, moisture and temperature conditions. Silver-green Olive leaves are handpicked, starting each January for two months, and are then dried naturally.
We are sourcing this bi-product of the Olive tree cultivation, that would else be discarded.

Giving a second chance to by-products of a number of different cultivations is one of the greatest achievements of the KORRES Soil Lab, based on the principles of circular economy.
