Information on the dates of consumption / use of the products we sell and the "short date" markings.
According to European Union regulations therm "best before" is set: extra virgin olive oil max. 12-18 months, virgin olive oil up to 36 months, from the date of pouring (not the date of harvest!).
We work only directly with reputable producers, thanks to which we know exactly everything about the production and distribution process. In the store, we mark a specific harvest season, e.g. 2022/2023 and the harvest month: early harvest, depending on the geographical location, is usually October, when the most valuable oil is produced, other oils are harvested in November-January. The oil of industrial production may have a long expiry date, but it may come from earlier harvests, or it may be a mixture of old olive oil and olive oil from the current harvest. Each EVOO in our offer has a number of documents confirming its quality, and in the case of oils used for health prophylaxis, all documentation prepared every season by appropriate scientific units (biochemical analysis, magnetic resonance NMR, HPLC, gallic eq and many others). "Best before" date and other useful info you can find in "additional info" tab.
Due to the high rotation of our products, their "expiry/ best before" dates are as long as possible. For each product, under the description, you will find information about the date. Due to continuous deliveries and wide assortment, some minor errors may occasionally arise. Products with a shorter "best before" date and wholesome but with damaged packaging have a "short date" tag. Thanks to excellent logistics, no intermediaries, we offer you the best possible prices, and we focus only on the best quality products and natural ingredients. In most cases, the prices we offer are much lower than the same products bought in Greece. If you find the same product at a better price, please let us know. We always issue fiscal receipts or VAT invoices.
