Extra Virgin Olive Oil – organic, fair & social

“When companies focus on environmental awareness, fair working conditions and social responsibility, they can have an enormously positive impact on people and nature. We act exactly according to this maxim and would like to make our contribution to this new way of doing business in the long term.” Otto and David, the two founders of Pouli, spent six months on Lesbos in Greece themselves in 2019 and directly experienced the situation of refugees on the island. “We were shocked that people in Europe have to live in such undignified conditions. We want to help change that.”

Greek Olive Oil – combines taste and help

Organic farming and fair payment of small farmers are basic requirements for Pouli. In addition, five percent of all sales go to the Hamburg-based aid organization Medical Volunteers, which provides basic medical care for refugees in Greece. The olives for Pouli Organic Olive Oil are harvested by hand and then cold pressed in a purely mechanical process, thus preserving the secondary plant compounds. The organic cultivation method, traditional harvesting and natural processing on site form the basis for quality that you can taste.
