Savvas extra virgin olive oil
I have a passion about savory food.
I always use my senses to appreciate it like a great ritual.
This is something I learned from my grandfather, a great food connoisseur, who used to say
”Food must have taste, otherwise you don’t enjoy it”.
After being involved in the food business for quite long, I would modify this a bit to make it fit to the market’s needs as well:
”Food must have taste, otherwise you don’t sell it either.”
With this always in mind, I created “Green Blue Savours”, a small, family, olive oil bottling enterprise. My goal was to make my own business footprint by selling an honest, extra virgin Greek olive oil, one that I would buy myself for me and my family.
To put it in a simple and heart-felt way, olive oil is a gift to me.
Our olive oil specifically, coming from the region of Khalkidhiki, a peninsula in the northern part of Greece famous for the unique olive variety ”hondroelia” (a thick olive fruit), is as unique as it can get. The region’s terroir is characterized by the green old forests, dominantly covering the northern part of the region, and the Blue Aegean Sea, covering the southern part. This unique complexion of the area is a significant factor shaping the oil’s unique fruity taste, its pleasant spiciness and delightful bitterness. This is what makes every single drop absolutely delicious.
Our mission is to take the year’s fresh olive oil, which comes from the very first olive pressing, and filter it, in order to make it last more. Afterwards, we bottle it straight away in a traditional metal can, keeping it protected from light and delivering it to you intact and exactly as delicious as when it was bottled.
Our brand name is ”Savvas”, which stands not only for my first name, but also as a special thanks to my memorable grandfather, who remains until now my inspiration. The double ‘v’ in “Savvas” is represented as a cute moustache, my grandfather’s most recognizable physical characteristic, which I preserved myself as tribute to him.
Last, but not least, our vision is to happily serve people and small businesses locally and internationally, trying to make their daily food not just tasty, but delicious!
