Honor, love and respect…
Our principle is being respectful to humanity, soil, water, plants, animals;
mainly the essence of life with love and honesty.
We produce by the philosophy in Ecologic living without destroying.
Our mission is to deal fairly with the benefits of nature now and again.
Each single product is very valuable,
however with the respect to the sanctity to olive trees and the golden fruits the most prized is olive oil.
We have about 35,000 olive trees in our plantations. 90% Memecik for oil and 10% Gemlik for table olive.
Memecik olive can be easily distinguished by its asymmetrical oval structure and slight twist at the fruit tip and strong body breed is very resistant to climate stress, drought and freezing cold. The gray-green leaves reflect a silvery glow in the sun.
The climate characteristics of Aydin provence; The appropriate pH level soil structure, the rich forests on the surrounding mountain’s area afford the high polyphenol values to Memecik olives and the olive oil raising sensual variation from other olive varieties.
The blooming period is late April. The first fruits appear in late May, early June.
Harvest and oil extraction start in late September and goes on until the end of December.

From the tree to the table
Our olive trees are maintained in Organic Agriculture and olive oil production is controlled and certified Organic.
Daily picking is very early every morning. Olives are carried to mill straightway and extraction;
the fully automatic,untouched cold pressing process starts immediately.
Until 5 years before we were using the traditional 3-phase stone mill pressing method. In 2017,
we switched to original Italian 2-phase cold-press OlioMio system. Only
paper filtering is being used before bottling.

OUR QUALITY STANDARDS
Gürsel Tonbul has been the TEVOO (Turkish Boutique Evo Olive Oil Producers Association) member since its establishment.
As a social responsibility project; With the respect and love to olive tree, olive and olive oil, we established ‘Oleatrium Olive and Olive Oil History Museum’ to transfer the known history of “Olive and Olive Oil in Anatolia” to future generations.
Oleatrium formed by combining the words olea and atrium which means an open court endowed to olive.
“Olive oil” lightening the darkness for thousands of years, blessed the shrines. Throughout the human history health, wealth, art, civilization and hope proceed together with olive culture in the areas where the olive tree grow. Olive oil has brought prosperity to human being and comfort their life. In order to ensure sth the gratitude and loyalty to the “olive tree”, to reflect the bond with “olive oil culture” in Anatolia and Mediterranean history; In Oleatrium we set up the project to share and inherit the legacy to the future. A visitor passes through a time tunnel of 2500 years where the traces of many civilizations are exhibited with life-size and lifelike animations. Hundreds of tools about olive oil production, including a Klozemenai adaptation illuminate visual and permanent information about how mechanisms and devices used to work to the future generations.
