Working with farmers that share a deep respect for the environment and a real passion for sustainable harvesting methods; they teach us every day that our continuous love for our craft is what speaks to our heart and makes our products unique.
They are two brothers, like us, and it was in 2012, when they decided to combine their modern approach with the years of experience of their family's olive oil producers, that our heritage led us to launch the LADOLEA brand through our company "Melissi". The name LADOLEA comes from the combination of the two words Ladi (λάδι meaning Olive Oil in Greek) and Elea (ἐλαίᾱ meaning Olive Tree in ancient Greek). They named their company "Melissi", after the name of their grandfather's village.
