…the difference is in the … Patented Process…
With numerous patents and over 50 years’ experience working in close cooperation with some of the world’s leading blue chip food companies, including Kelloggs, Mars, Nestle, Proctor & Gamble and Unilever, our founder Mr. Spyros Christodolou has accumulated a lifetime of knowledge and expertise.
Born in Sudan in 1946 to parents from the Mediterranean islands of Chios & Cyprus, Spyros showed an early interest in both Nature and Machinery, and through his fathers peanut processing business, Spyros was exposed to the world of peanut farming, processing and machinery from just 10 years old.
Happiest and most content when he was tinkering with anything mechanical, be it car and boat engines, or more specifically the machinery at the plant, in 1965 his passion for engineering took him to London where he commenced his mechanical engineering studies.
His ability as a gifted engineer and forward thinking innovator set him apart from his peers and in his early 20s, his development of cutting edge technologies and ground-breaking processes led him to form his first business and secure his first major contract from one of the worlds largest food groups.
This one-of-a-kind level of innovation also allowed Spyros to secure numerous patents and many of the world’s largest blue chip food companies as long term customers and collaborators.
More importantly, the significance of his developments meant that each client including his very first major client continued to renew their contracts with him right the way through to his retirement some 30 years later.
In testament to his forward vision, some of the innovative machinery he conceived, designed and built for Mars Inc. in 1988
still form part of their vast plant at their main factory in Albany, Georgia (some 33 years later) and due to their size can be viewed on Google earth
With a growing interest in health & wellness and his passion for the Mediterranean diet (particularly the health benefits associated with Extra Virgin Olive Oil), in late 2000 Spyros took early retirement from the business he founded to focus on a long harboured dream that dates back to his early childhood.
Dating back to when he used to help his grandmother (Yiayia Cleanthi) pick olives for the family’s olive oil culinary needs, Spyros observed that the first batch of olive oil produced from the very earliest harvested olives was always put aside and only ever used for the family’s various medicinal needs.
It was this particular observation that has always fascinated him and with the knowledge and experience that he has accumulated over the course of his lifetime – Spyros believed that he could realise his dream.
His dream …. was for the development of an ultra-premium nutraceutical Extra Virgin Olive Oil with enhanced health benefits …..
Today … we call his dream …
