Esti: Greek Olives, oils & spreads.
More than any other Greek product, Olive oil has become synonymous not only with the Greek tradition but also with the nutritional habits and cultures of many other countries. Our Esti range of Greek olive foods allows you to embrace this culture, right in your very own home.
Does olive oil contain cholesterol?
Can I use olive spread instead of butter?
Yes! Esti Organic Kalamata Olive Spread 100g is certainly better for you than butter, making it a great addition to your morning toast.
Why are kalamata olives so expensive?
Kalamata olives are typically more expensive than regular olives due to the way in which they are grown and prepared, using traditional Greek methods. They have a distinct taste and varying health benefits too, however with that said we believe Esti Organic Kalamata Olives 300g are competitively priced.
Why is it called extra virgin olive oil?
Extra virgin is the highest quality olive oil, which is characterized by a maximum acidity of 0,8% (in oleic acid), a perfect flavour and odour. Approximately eighty percent of olive oils produced in Greece are extra virgin because the olives are cold pressed within twenty-four hours of harvesting.
How long does olive oil last?
Olive oil naturally lasts for a very long time (about 18 months if properly stored). It keeps its natural properties due to the presence of natural Antioxidants.
Who are Esti?
Esti was established by the Plemmenos brothers, in 1912, in Kalamata. Olive growing, in Greece, started mostly on small family estates, where a particular relationship is built between the olive growers and the olives, with respect and care as predominant features. It is a loving relationship that bears precious fruits and from this Esti was born.
