Retreeve is our ikigai, what gives us a purpose to live and added fulfilment to our busy lives. If you share our values, we would love to welcome you to our family and altogether contribute to creating a better future. How we are doing that?
Support Greek small farmers of Historic Groves
We support younger generations of struggling farmers to maintain the historic groves of olives in several areas of Greece: in Crete, where the oldest olive tree in the world is found, still producing olives; in Peloponnese, where Hercules planted the first Olympic olive tree; in Attica, where goddess Athena gifted the olive tree to the citizens of the town that would get her name; in Sperchios Valley, then ancient Fthia, homeland of Achilles, where the hero Aristaeus was taught by the Nymphs how to grow olives and vines and then invented the olive press and spread this knowledge to Sardenia and Sicily, where he was worshipped as the god of olive producers.
If you deconstruct Greece, you will in the end see an olive tree, a grapevine, and a boat remain. That is, with as much, you reconstruct her.Odysseas Elytis
We encourage sustainability and improvements in the environmental footprint by urging the producers to guard the traditions, while keeping an eye on productivity and sustainable innovation. We consider this as part of a virtuous circle of a circular economy, which is attentive to future generations.
Share our vision for a healthier world
We are passionate about our health and well-being and our vision is a world with less diseases and a thriving body and mind. Thus, we have made it a life goal to promote natural products that are proven to not only guard our health, but in many cases have reversed damages in the physical and mental state. The Mediterranean diet has been several times proven to be one of the healthiest diets and its superstar, the olive oil, has been used for thousands of years in Greece, not only for cooking, but also for medicine and cosmetics.
Create a strong bond with Greece
We have experience in the domain of hospitality in Greece and have several times witnessed the special bonds that the visitors develop with our country. By adopting a tree, you practically create roots in this land and empower this relationship for a life.
