Orfey Gardens’ mission is to spread awareness in Japan of what really good olive oil is, the pure nectar of olives. The tremendous health benefits of the Mediterranean diet and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) are well documented. While oil made with either green or black olives is a healthy choice, few people know that the healthiest and highest quality olive oil is made from green olives.

Authentic Greek extra virgin olive oil, made from 100% Greek olives, is low in acidity, high in polyphenols content, and rich in flavor.A true superfood, extra virgin olive oil should tingle your taste buds and excite your soul. We personally select our Greek partner producers to deliver to you the best and most flavorful olive oil available. One taste is a revelation and you will soon develop an awareness for good quality oil and a healthier life.

Family Farm

KYKLOPAS

Our partner Kyklopas is a family farm located in the northern region of Greece. For generations this family has been making olive oil – caring for everything from tree to bottle. Their orchard grows in a clean environment which is far from any pollution and uses the latest production technologies in order to achieve top quality.

The unique olive variety, soil type, climate conditions and farming practices produces a truly unique flavors and gives you the chance to experience a variety of tastes.

From tree
   to bottle

When it comes to high quality olive oil, the best are produced and bottled at the place of farming. Processing, crushing and malaxing the fruit by mechanical means only, followed by immediate packaging of the fresh oil is the best guarantee for lasting quality.

Origin traceability and quality of olive oil on the market today is difficult to discern; many manufacturers blend a variety of olives from many different sources. It is estimated that only about 20% of the olive oil imported to Japan is of high quality.

Our partner takes resposibility for the whole cycle of olive oil production from tree to bottle. And no middle-men are involved – Orfey Gardens is a direct importer and the only distributor of their products in Japan.

Ideal Packaging

At Orfey Gardens, we believe in selling wholesome premium products at reasonable prices. In order to keep prices lower we reduce transportation costs to a minimum without sacrificing quality by packaging the oil in cans. Storing olive oil in cans is the perfect way for keeping the product away from light and humidity, two factors which speed up the aging of fresh olive oil.

But the best way to store fresh oil is to put it in your stomach as fast as possible!
