More infor­ma­ti­on

The brand “A!” stands for one hund­red per­cent extra vir­gin Koron­ei­ki oli­ve oil. Unli­ke OEL, A! is pro­du­ced collec­tively at non-bio-cer­ti­fied levels. This means that the Koron­ei­ki olives used come from com­mu­nal­ly ten­ded gro­ves around Anda­nia. The peop­le and far­mers of Anda­nia are uni­que­ly con­nec­ted to us and our oil mill, enab­ling us to car­ry a con­ven­tio­nal­ly pro­du­ced coun­ter­part to OEL.

You may have alrea­dy noti­ced: “A! as in Anda­nia!”. Some­thing that at first may sound like our own ver­si­on of the spel­ling alpha­bet is the mea­ning­ful con­nec­tion bet­ween our design and the place whe­re it all began. Our cen­ter of the world.

In Anda­nia you can find the most modern pro­ces­sing plant for raw olives in the who­le of Mes­s­i­nia — our pro­ces­sing plant, our so-cal­led oil mill. In a nuts­hell, five strong (and proud!) Greeks, two trac­tors, a 400-meter-long pro­duc­tion line — which pro­du­ces 12,000 kilo­grams per hour — 200 tons of cli­ni­cal­ly ste­ri­le stain­less steel, mil­li­ons of kilo­watts of self-gene­ra­ted solar power, hund­reds of thousands of liters of water spe­cial­ly fil­te­red for this pur­po­se, and a brand-new two-pha­se decan­ter make the liquid green gold flow like the rivers in anci­ent Baby­lon.

All the effort, mana­ged and stom­ped by a tiny com­mu­ni­ty in the midd­le of the vast­ness of the Pelo­pon­nese, ends up in our eggs­hell-colo­red canis­ter. A pro­duct made by the few for the many.

Announ­ce­ment: From the end of 2021, we would like the pro­ceeds from tra­ding A! to go back into pro­jects in the com­mu­ni­ty of Anda­nia and the sur­roun­ding area.
