Gathered by hand from the olive groves of the Monastery of the Annunciation of Virgin Mary at Ormylia, the Green Olives from Chalkidiki are a genuine natural and monastic product. Taste them plain or use them as accompaniment in salads and Mediterranean dishes.
For more than forty years, the nuns of the Monastery of Annunciation have engaged in the cultivation of olive groves, while respecting nature and the surrounding environment. They collect the fruits with their bare hands and with extra love and care. This is the reason why, Green Olives from Chalklidiki stand out with their exceptional taste.
Having significant benefits for human health and longevity, olives and their products are valuable nutrients for a balanced diet, especially for Mediterranean cuisine lovers.
Since ancient times, the fruit of the olive tree was considered blessed and was a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, health, abundance, beauty and strength.
The olives are rich sources of monounsaturated fatty acids. The chlorine they contain helps improve liver functions while vitamins A, D, E and K help encourage bone growth. People who follow a low sodium diet, especially hypertensive, should not consume large quantities of olives, because they are high in sodium content.
