Food 5 Olive Oil Have you tried the world's best olive oil yet? World Excellent Products S.A. is a company driven by a passion for excellence in gastronomy. The idea for 5 Olive Oil was born from a group of people who shared a devotion to quality, innovation as well as a drive to create one of the finest premium olive oil brands on the market. 5 Olive Oil is a premium line of products produced from some of the best olive crops in the Mediterranean. 5 Olive Oil's well-balanced, fruity taste, and low acidity is the result of its regional origin in Peloponnese, Greece, and its extraction from Koroneiki olives, the best variety available. Throughout the cultivation, harvesting, pressing, storage, and bottling process, they maintain the highest quality of standards. A host of archaeological evidence reveals the existence of olive trees in the Hellenic territory since the Neolithic era, namely 7,000 years ago. The olive has been considered by Greeks a blessed fruit since antiquity: an emblem of knowledge, wisdom, abundance, health, power, and beauty. Legends, traditions, religious, and athletic ceremonies have relied upon it. The olive branch was awarded to the winners of the Olympic Games since 776 B.C. and in antiquity symbolized the peace and mandatory truce all over the world throughout the duration of the Games. In Greece, there are unique cultivars of olive trees, such as the Koromiko, which has its long history tied with Greece and did not grow in other olive oil producing countries until recently.
