The annual event for the fine olive oil “Protolado” from the olive groves of Chalkidiki was held on Sunday, 18 November, at the Bernier/Eliades Gallery in Thiseio, Athens.
Stater Ltd manufactures this unique type of olive oil with excellent properties and high quality standards. The olive breed, the climate, the earth, the appropriate culturing techniques and the fact that the olive collection is carried out in late September (much earlier than others) are the factors that makes the oil “Protolado” special.
The creator of the “Protolado” is historian and art collector, Dimitris Portolos. Mr. Portolos is also the CEO of the mining company Grecian Magnesite and co-founder of the Hellenic Literary and Historical Archive.
This unique type of olive oil has been honored with the Quality Award by Gastronomos magazine in 2010.
During the event, apart from the “Protolado,” other olive products were offered such as crushed green olives and the new product almades spread. These traditional dishes were accompanied by dolmadakia, village bread and various baked goods.
