Food Spotlight: Ladolea Greek Olive Oil



The LADOLEA® olive oils are 100% single varietal and each one stems from a different variety of olives, exclusively grown in the northern part of the Peloponnesian peninsula.

Our partners are hard-working farmers, who share our passion for olive oil. Having a deep respect for our environment, they are truly committed to the high quality of the whole process and to sustainable farming methods.

The journey of LADOLEA® begins in November, which is the ideal harvest period. Depending on the desired result in taste, olives may be harvested at any point during the ripening season. We prefer the early harvest, when the fruit is still unripe and green. Even though the production is lower at this stage, the olives impart a more fruity and pungent note to the olive juice while, at the same time, contributing to our health by being higher in polyphenols and antioxidants.

Snack Spotlight: Way Better Snacks Rosemarry Me & Olive Oil Crackers




Sprouting has been known to enhance the absorption of nutrients and aid in digestion.

Barley is one of the oldest cultivated grains-highest in fiber of any whole grain and packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals essential to health. Not only that, but it has a delicious, rich, nutty flavor.

By sprouting, we naturally eliminate the outer protective layer of seeds, beans and grains that makes them hard to digest

Oh, and OUR crackers are YUMMY!

About the company

It all started with a simple vision to create a better snack.  We wondered, wouldn’t it be great to go back to a time when the food we ate was actually nutritious and good for you.  You know, before decades of environmental harm and mega food conglomerate processing wiped out most of the nutrients which used to be abundant in the food your grandparents ate.  To make products you could feel good about eating again and sharing with others.

Well, with that in mind, we decided to do just that.  And we were led to the miracle of germination (you might know it as sprouting).  Now we know that nutritionists and naturalists have been touting the incredible nutritional benefits of sprouting for years.  And we knew how sprouting unlocked all the “good” that is inherent in all grains, seed and beans and brings them back to life (nutritionally speaking).  So we thought, why then couldn’t we combine the powerful benefits of sprouting to a great tasting snack?  You know sort of like those old TV commercials with that guy and girl tripping into each other with their chocolate and peanut butter.  Anyway, you get the picture.

Packaging Spotlight: Terroir



Designed by
Marios Karystios
Athens, Greece





Alexandra Manousakis left the U.S. back in 2007 to manage her family winery in the island of Crete. Her admiration for Crete, made her conceive a selection of local products under the name of Terroir, a line of products that serves as a showcase of Cretan nature as well as its unique and unforgettable terroir. The approach on the design was influenced by Alexandra's simplicity in character and her love for supporting local communities and charities. Each bottle of the olive oil and sea salt jar, is handmade by a local ceramist, and a percentage of the profits is donated to ELEPAP, a very special school for children with disabilities. Bottles and jars and can be reused afterwards.

Skin Care Spotlight: S.W BASICS Cream


This is the mother of all S.W. Basics products. You know how lots of lotions and moisturizers leave you needing more, like ten minutes after you put them on? That's because they use water as a base. When it evaporates, you dry out all over again. Our Cream starts with wild-harvested shea butter we get from an incredible Fair Trade women's cooperative in Ghana. We add some organic extra-virgin coconut oil and organic extra-virgin olive oil. So it's extremely rich, sinking deep into the skin and staying there. But since all the ingredients are totally non-comedogenic, it won't clog your pores, meaning it's just as awesome on your face as it is on your body.

About the Company

At S.W. Basics, we make our products from scratch using only whole, high-potency ingredients. For us, less isn’t just more; less is everything. We’ve found that if we stick with only absolutely essential ingredients and don’t add a bunch of extra stuff, we don’t need to put a hundred things into our products. Using fewer ingredients means more potent skincare. We don’t water it down with cheap synthetics or exotic fillers. It also means that our products are more likely to be safe even on the most sensitive skin. That’s why everything we sell only has 5 ingredients or less. And they still make you look amazing and smell pretty.

Another thing we take really seriously is the sourcing of our ingredients. We want our products to be as healthy for our communities and our planet as they are for our customers. That’s why we support sustainable agriculture by buying only from organic, Fair Trade, or small-farm sources.

Food Spotlight: Unique Greek Products Olive Oil



Minding the details.
By taking care of every single detail from the beginning to the end of the process, we managed to create a UNIQUE product that we are proud of, for both its quality and taste. Therefore its no coincidence the fact that we chose the word OPTIMUM (excellent) for qualifying it, for we trully believe it is not humanly possible to achieve a better product quality. So you, the final recipients, are asked to judge whether we are indeed worthy of your expectations.



We designed and manufactured a unique and exquisite packaging in order to meet the standards of its content. Bottles are externally painted with a specific colour to protect oil from ultraviolet radiation, helping therefore to keep unchanged all characteristics and taste of it, at least until the expiration date.


Oil Facts
- Helps preventing heart attacks
- Has anti-aging effects contributing thus to longevity
- Plays a key role in the development of the central nervous system
- Facilitates digestion of fats
- Contains E and A vitamins that are known antioxidants
- It is more digestible in comparison to other oils
- Plays an important role in bone growth
- Reduces blood pressure
- Improves insulin sensitivity and lowers insulin and blood sugar levels after meals
- Increases HDL cholesterol – “good-cholesterol”
- Reduces LDL cholesterol – “bad cholesterol”
- Prevents fat accumulation in the liver
- It is the least toxic of all the oils when frying
- Prevents blood clotting in heart arteries
- Improves bowel mobility




About the Company

Who are we A handful of people passionate about Greek land and its "Unique" products. Our company specializes in searching, packaging and marketing of unique Greek alimentary products. Our company appeals exclusively to markets abroad, having as its aim the promotion and acquaintance of exceptional Greek products to a wider audience.



Mediterranean Diet
It is now known to us all that the Mediterranean diet is the healthiest diet, as it contributes among other things to good health and longevity of the individual. One of the main components of this diet is olive oil that due to its content of monounsaturated fats, is considered a healthy diet food product, known for its many positive effects on human body.



Why olive oil.
We decided that the first product of our product range would be ultra high quality olive oil from our own estates that we keep and care in excellent condition without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides and of course without automatic watering. The estates are located in Peta - Epirus, a region whose geographical location with its ideal altitude and climate and its rich in organoleptic ingredients slopy and rocky terrain, create the ideal conditions for this particular crop. The olives trees are both Amfissa and Koroneiki cultivars and olives are harvested exclusively by hand during the night, placed in crates and not in bags to prevent deterioration during transport and are taken within short time to the olive oil press. There, they are crushed into a paste which is malaxed (mixed) in a special mixer for 35-40 minutes. Separation of oil with the use of completely COLD water follows and the oil is stored in special stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature until bottling. Bottling procedure is free of filters presence in order to retain valuable polyphenols in olive oil. This method on one hand results in a reduced production but on the other hand it boosts the quality of oil, which is the primary issue in our case.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: WolfPit – Creating the ultimate olive oil



The quest for the best olive oil through the application of composting,irrigation and TLC.


Campaign Highlights

Fossa di Lupo is an Extra Virgin Olive Oil from South East Sicily.

Matthew and Marianna which are professional not related to the agriculture industry in any manner (Naval architect & Interior designer respectively), are aiming at producing a new range of their produce to celebrate the birth of Lavinia, our first child born in July.

It is our wish to improve the outcome of our crop, since due to poor weather conditions this year, our total harvest is 75% less than 2013.




Our Story

Marianna and Matthew are relatively new to the Agriculture sector, having worked as an interior designer and as a naval architect respectively.

Marianna's passion for her land (Sicily) and her roots have led her together with Matthew to start up and develop the manufacturing and selling of Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil into a business.

We have been at it since December 2012, having met a series of milestones over these 2 years:

• P.D.O. Certification.  Demonstrating the quality and pureness of our produce,
• Bio/Organic certification:  We are two years into the compulsory 3 years required for Organic certification.  This process shall be complete by end of 2015, when we will officially have the Bio/Organic certification.




The Oil

"Wolf Pit/Fossa di Lupo" is an extra virgin olive oil obtained from the selection of the best olives from our grove located in the contrada 'Fossa di Lupo', this location is part of the P.D.O. Monti Iblei areas and in particular the subarea of 'Valle dell'Irminio'. The olives used produce an extraordinary P.D.O. Monti Iblei extra virgin olive oil.
The result is an exclusive and unique blend of extra virgin olive oil, which has a herbaceous fragrance and taste , oil of extreme high quality which can be defined, both by it's external looks as well as by the quality of it's contents as a sinphony of various sense notes which change as the oil moves along the throat.

We also produce a range of interesting fusions of extreme taste: Lemon, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Orange and Chilli. All our fusions enhance the flavors without covering the extra virgin taste, and they are a perfect combination for the dishes it accompanies (see above).



In "Wolf Pit/Fossa di Lupo" olive oil you will find the true and unmistakable flavour of the purest Sicilian extra virgin olive oil. Our oil is unique in it's flavour, quality and health properties, as well as traditional in its production through the cold pressing within hours of harvesting olives. These few teachings have been handed down and followed over the years, and together with the Sicilian climate , the fertile land and a great passion for the healthy , are essential ingredients to get obtain a unique extra virgin olive oil. 'Wolf Pit' oil is a product for real connoisseurs, unique in its kind due to the percentages of cultivars involved. Our policy is " Elegance at the table, Luxury for the palate ." For this reason our oil turns out a melody from both the quality of the oil as well as the luxurious design of the packaging.





It would be our intention to improve our range of extra virgin olive oil, through introducing new techniques to our olive grove.

The techniques we wish to improve/introduce include:

• Composting techniques
• Adequate irrigation for the summer drought months
• Adequate and expert pruning twice a year on half a grove at a time
• Earth oxygenation
• Adequate labeling and closure of fencing


Eventually and only should we exceed the Indiegogo target goal , we would also fund the following:

• Creation of a structured commercial/sales dept.
• Approaching the US and Canada markets through sales investments
• Approaching further top luxury markets/targets (Asia, Middle East)
• Improve e-commerce tools
• Redesigning packaging for 100ml tasting bottles in pack of 5 gift luxury boxes
• Creation of 'Scents of Sicily' range of olive oils
• Creation of 'Scents of Italy' range of olive oils
• Creation of 'Scents of the Mediterranean' range of olive oils

About the Company
Queen Elyssa is the founder of ancient carthage modern Tunisia, in 814 BC.

She made olives and olive oil extraction a part of the local culture.

In examining the historic pieces collected from Carthage we were struck by the similarity in all coins produced in Carthage between 460BC and 100BC: All coins had the head of the queen Ellysa on one side and a horse on the other.

In her honor, we named our olive oil Terra Delyssa, The land of Elyssa and chose the horse, carthage's symbol of fertility and prosperity as our emblem. Read More
