Our olive oil gift set…
is suitable for any occasion. Because let’s be honest: with the pandemic alone, awareness of special foods and their production has become more important to all of us. An awareness that can be shared wonderfully, with people who mean something to you — and we think: to virtually any occasion.

Why, of all things, olive oil as a gift? Or even a whole olive oil gift set?
Quite simply, olive oil is one of the oldest agricultural products in the world. All over the globe, people press and extract oils of all possible qualities from organic to conventional from more than 1500 different olive varieties. The more one deals with this almost infinite world of oils, the more one realizes how little knowledge is spread in this regard. We have been doing educational work on this for six years now and now see ourselves as ambassadors of the olive and olive oil. Therefore, we offer the opportunity to give not only culinary pleasure, but also provide facts and knowledge. And the two combined in our olive oil gift set.
In order to sustainably fulfill the self-imposed responsibility of being ambassadors, we not only emphasize the unique taste and comprehensive ingredient richness of our products, but also transparency and communication — …
What can I do with a gift set full of olive oil?
… and not just in relation to questions around the production. Transparency and communication can also mean addressing practical issues like the one above. In the coming issues of our newsletter >Journoel< we will publish more great recipes to inspire and provide ideas for cooking with a whole olive oil gift set. But to answer the question directly, you don’t even need to cook. With the OEL gift box, the recipient is only one bottle of balsamic vinegar away from a wonderful salad. Or just an onion and a feta away from a real Greek salad. The same is true for our OELregano, which can be sprinkled over our oil and then dipped with good bread. It doesn’t have to be complicated to be good. A way of speaking and living that we have acquired in our adopted home of Kalamata and that applies to our oil and all other products.
