For four generations, the Makripodis family has been producing world-class olive oil. The isle of Crete, where all Makripodis olive oil is made, produces the healthiest olive oil in the world. Olive oil produced in Crete has higher levels of antioxidants (polyphenols) compared to other brands. The acidity level of Makripodis Olive Oil is 0.7%, which contributes to a longer shelf life. Anything beyond 0.8% is not EVOO. EVOO is the highest grade and purest olive oil. When you cook with Makripodis Olive Oil, you can expect to experience the care and attention we took to create a very high-quality product.
