occasions over the last years, we visited the "Mavroudis Olive Oil" . There we tasted authentic olive oil and learned about the olive oil production
since ancient times until today´s modern technology.
Listening to all the Olive oil scandals regarding “fake” extra virgin olive oil and having the experience of the Corfu olive oil we decided to introduce "Mavroudis" olive oil to our friends, family and colleagues by sending a shipment to Denmark. The first shipment of olive oil from Corfu received indeed a very welcoming and positive opinion!
Based on these experiences we decided in 2018 to embark on the “Greek Temptations” adventure. "Greek Temptations" has the purpose to introduce quality authentic Greek olive oil to the Danish consumers in the form of "Mavroudis Extra Virgin Olive Oil" and "Gourmet aromatic olive oils".
Since we started Greek Temptations we have had numerous enquiries regarding purchase of Organic olive oil. Vi considered this wish and decided to meet this demand by introducing an Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil to our Danish customers. We have therefore sampled a number of Greek organic extra virgin olive oils and decided to start a collaboration with "Kyklopas", a family owned company from the eastern Greece, Alexandroupolis.
(The company is situated near the cave, where according to the Greek mythology, the giant Cyclop was living, thus the name of the company!)
Over the years "Kyklopas" has won a number of medals for their high quality olive oil at international competitions.
Each year we try to visit our producers and taste their fresh olive oil in order to make sure that the quality lives up to our expectations.
