Welcome to Mill.o.petres: The Green Treasure of the Greek Land

Discover the captivating world of Mill.o.petres, where the aromas of green apple, marjoram, herbs, chamomile, almond, and a myriad of spices are hidden within the rich olive groves of Greece. Mill.o.petres is the modern embodiment of the Old Olive Oil Mill of 1962, revitalized in 2016 by its current owner, Michalis Chavales.

Our traditional methods, rooted in pressing olives on millstones, are a testament to the cultural heritage we cherish and strive to preserve for future generations. The combination of extensive knowledge, years of experience, and a deep passion for olive oil production shapes our vision for a high-quality, unique product. Our team at Mill.o.petres is dedicated to blending tradition with innovation while maintaining the age-old methods of olive oil production.

The Olive Oil Mill

In early 2016, we established a modern production unit that uses traditional slow-production methods enhanced by advanced technology. The antioxidant properties of olives, a cornerstone of the Mediterranean Diet, are preserved, contributing significantly to health and longevity. Our innovative "olive fruit extract" stands out for its unique health benefits. We aim to produce an unsurpassed quality product while adhering to the highest international safety and hygiene standards. At the heart of our operations is producing "olive fruit extract" with exceptionally high phenol content, promoted in global markets.
