This means we can guarantee:

Our Greek immigrant generation is fortunate because it still remembers what it feels like to know the source of your food.

Our product contains high levels of the nutrients that studies have proven slow the aging process, reduce the risk of type II diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, and promote healthy arteries. Eternal Olive’s uncompromising approach ensures you will enjoy the nutritional advantage of extraordinary extra-virgin olive oil.
The health benefits of extra-virgin olive oil have been touted far and wide, but until now, obtaining such a product has been a difficult process. Most consumers perceive the bottles they find on supermarket shelves to be the real deal, but less than 30 percent of this supply actually harbors the stringent qualities that categorize oil as extra-virgin. This is because many providers prefer profit instead of authenticity, using techniques to increase grove yields. We believe in purity and are returning to the location and the methods that do not compromise authenticity.
When it comes to olive oil, less is more.
Did you know?
- Harvesting late in the season (to wait for more olives on trees) effectively diminishes the level of nutrients per olive.
- To maximize production quantities, some providers press the same olives multiple times, drastically reducing the quality of the end product. This severely waters down the oil that makes it to your table.
- Many providers over-irrigate their olive trees in an effort to artificially plump the fruit. While this may result in more extracted oil, this practices also works to diminish the beneficial nutrients found in olives.
- Many providers add chemicals and inferior oils to increase yield, mask flaws and chemically mimic true extra-virgin olive oil.
- We leverage cold-press techniques – meaning our process is devoid of hot water, steam or additional ingredients like salt that can change the composition of the olive oil, compromising the health benefits to the consumer.
We believe the techniques employed by our selected grove operators are the only way to arrive at a product we believe in. Our processes may be arduous and painstaking, but they adhere to the blueprint that Mother Nature designed to keep the precious and powerful olive intact.
Simply put, we bottle purity.
internal consistency of a message and the effectiveness of its supporting evidence.
Olive oil has come a long way since the first wild olive tree was harvested in ancient Greece. From the initial discovery of its varied and powerful applications in diet, medicine, and skin-care, the mission to incorporate this product into our lives has pushed both producers and consumers to settle for larger quantities.
But it turns out authenticity is crucial. Because we endeavor to provide the most pure product, we have personally researched thousands of producers and chosen only those with exceptional reputations. Our collection of family-owned and operated groves in Greece’s southern region of Peloponnese share our passion for Agourelaio and our belief in authenticity.
Through these timeless stewards monitoring daily conditions of the groves, Eternal Olive is able to guarantee our product’s quality in a way many providers cannot. In addition, leveraging generations of industry knowledge and practice enables us to analyze at multiple steps in the process one of the most important factors of extra-virgin olive oil’s quality: acidity.
To be categorized as “extra-virgin,” oil must contain natural acidity levels that do not exceed .8 percent. Lower levels of acidity translate into greater numbers of polyphenols and antioxidants, the benefits so often praised in olive oils. Superior quality extra-virgin olive oils do not exceed .5 percent acidity. But Eternal Olive’s close eye and constant assessment of acidity means you will hold in your hands an exclusive bottle obtaining acidity at or below .3 percent.
Like any art form, Eternal Olive learns from the classical masters. By adhering to their time-tested methods and respecting the natural process, we can promise you an extraordinary oil of unsurpassed quality.

The Fabulous Olive
Pungent, pure, and powerful, the olive is one of nature’s most valuable ingredients. In its truest form, the form we strive to maintain, it has proven a veritable elixir of life.
When pressed into oil, this tiny fruit packs a punch from the main element of the oil known as triacylglycerols: a mix of triglycerides or fats. Most often this is leveraged as an energy reserve when consumed. Also found in olive oil are phosphatides, pigments and flavor compounds, sterols, glycerol, and bits of oil and free fatty acids.
From the Egyptians dating back to 2,000 B.C. who leveraged this oil to our present day selves, our understanding of the ingredient continually matures. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported researchers from Spain found the monounsaturated fats in olive oil work to slow the aging process of the heart and promote healthy arterial function. A recent study published in the scientific journal Diabetes Care showed that a Mediterranean-style diet rich in olive oil reduces the risk of type II diabetes by almost 50% compared to a low-fat diet. The Arthritis Today journal published an article that found extra-virgin olive oil has anti-inflammatory properties similar to ibuprofen and aspirin. A recent Austrian study found that when using oils to enrich yogurt, olive oil proved to have the greatest effect on participants’ satiety, citing that no member of the olive oil group reported weight increases.
