Today’s Olive, Since 1965

Why Amalthia?

Because Amalthia means robustness, abundance and prosperity.

In ancient Greek mythology Amalthia was the goat which breastfed Zeus, the father of the Olympian Gods, when his mother Rea helped him find shelter on the island of Crete in order to save him from his father Kronus, who devoured his own children to prevent them from taking his throne.

One day, while little Zeus was playing with Amalthia, he accidentally broke its horn. He used his divine powers in order not to upset the goat and he made her horn always overflow with goods in lavish abundance.

ABOUT OLIVE TREES

Symbol of knowledge, wisdom, abundance, health, strength and beauty, the olive tree is part of a heavy cultural heritage, full of legends and traditions inextricably linked to flowering, harvesting and producing olive oil. It thrives on the rocky and barren land of the Mediterranean, from the depths of the centuries, and its fruits produce excellent olive oil, the foundation of the Mediterranean diet.

The olive tree has been worshiped by our ancestors and helped our survival and the development of our culture. From the leaves and the branches to its fruits, this tree is undoubtedly Nature’s gift to humanity.

The story of our success

Our company was founded in 1965 by Athanasios Zoukas who took the initiative and made the first steps in treating, processing and marketing of olives.

Today, serving the legacy of toils and values of two generations and with a vision to let them, in turn, as supplies for future generations, we take care of our products one by one and on a daily basis, because we want to be proud of their excellent quality.
