Myrolion | About | Our Story |
Myrolion is now a family startup producing certified organic, extra virgin high phenolic olive oil
A former city family that never forgot its roots. It now enjoys serenity on the shores of the Pagasetic Gulf. Ancient monuments accompany our agelong trees to eternity. You will find us right there pruning, nurturing and sometimes hugging our trees!
“The discovery of agriculture was the first big step towards a civilized life.”
In the year 2010, the people of Europe’s “crisis capital” just started to feel what their country had been suffering though.
My father’s once thriving IT business followed that general Greek decline into recession. As a child, I watched as both of my parents worked tirelessly. I would spend most of my time trailing behind my father and his clients or following my mother to the office; it was their only assurance that I would be taken care of. All of that hard work, all of that stress, was not enough to keep us standing.
I soon got the first taste of “austerity” – a light word coating a cruel concept. How could we break that deadlock? My grandfather’s words came to our rescue. “Olive oil is our gold,” he used to say. “We can base our survival on it.” With that, he had revived his ancestors’ olive grove. And it was for that same reason that we reawaked it again.
By the end of 2012, we had managed to tame part of my grandfather’s abandoned grove. We harvested it and eventually began the production of our own organic, extra virgin olive oil. Since that day, we have offered all of our care to our grove and are being rewarded for it each day. Over the years, our experience let our goals evolve into something greater.
Myrolion is now a family startup producing certified organic, extra virgin olive oil. With every passing day, we grow by educating ourselves to perfect our products and services: to keep them pure, healthy, natural and transparent in a profit-oriented market which often leads to fraud and opportunism. When our civilized ways fail, all we have to do is go back and retake this first big step. We aim for a sustainable, collective prosperity and a sincere cultural exchange.
