We started Paragaea back in 2012 when we reimagined and restored the first mechanical olive oil factory of Parga that remained seized since 1974 and turned it into an olive oil museum and tasting center. Being olive oil producers for 3 generations, we created the Aegis Gourmet and the Elia product lines.
Our goal was to create honest olive oil products with respect to quality and impeccable taste. We began in 2012 and today our product line includes awarded extra virgin olive oils, flavored olive oils, olive oil-based dressings, and olive paste. The olive oil production and packaging are being carefully monitored and conducted by us in our own facilities. Through our physical and online store, we sell to the Nordic countries for the last 8 years with great success and we are now looking forward to establishing our position in the Nordic countries through exports.
