The term "Extra Virgin Olive Oil" is used to classify the highest quality olive oil. In chemical terms it means having an olive oil containing no more than 0.8% of oleic acid. The Olive oil must be produced entirely by mechanical means, without the use of solvents & temperatures below 30° centigrade so its properties will not change due to heat.

John Greek EVOO is a certified (P.D.O) "Protected Designation of Origin Product", its origin, the famed "Lygourio Asklepieon" region of Greece where cultivation of "Manaki" olives date back over 3,000 years & continues to this day.

Autumn harvest takes place middle to end of October where "single variety olive" is picked producing an unfiltered exceptional quality extra virgin olive oil.

The oil that has been "cold extracted" boasts unprecedented organoleptic characteristics & meets or exceeds the specifications set out for all PDO products.

To protect its qualitative properties, John Greek EVOO is bottled in tinted glass bottles protecting the product from oxidation and flavor degradation. When extra virgin olive oil is exposed to heat, light, and air the valuable nutrients in the oil begin to oxidize and the olive oil will begin to lose its flavor.

When buying extra virgin olive oil, buy one that is packaged in opaque or tinted glass; do not store olive oil in plastic containers as the oil can leach harmful substances out of the plastic.
