“This is our treasure.” Nikos and I walk through the olive grove. Nikos is different. Pride and calmness mingle within him. We talk almost in whispers. Later, it occurs to me how much respect he treats this place with.
Today marks exactly 9 years since the Good Factory was founded. 9 WONDERFUL YEARS! Wonderful thanks to YOU, who have helped us to save the people we meet. In 11 countries, on three continents. We save the needy from hunger, give shelter from war and we are there where without your support people would have no chance of any tomorrow.
Today, on the 9th birthday of the Good Factory, we want to introduce you to a long-awaited baby. The fruit of the labour of people whose dream of working has just come true. For the past years we have been feeding and healing. Today in Lesbos we are also teaching and giving work. The island is famous for its unique climate and its 14 million olive trees, the oil from which is considered the best, not regionally but globally. We have taken advantage of this by creating an organic farm and manufacturing facilities for the best quality olive oil.
Although every bottle of oil in the shops says ‘extra, extra’, you have to taste ours to find out what extra oil really tastes like. It is our treasure and we are proud of it. We are also proud of the refugees whose hard work is enclosed in these bottles. Our birthday pre-sale of NIKO’s oil has been launched. Treat yourself to a special gift on the occasion of our birthday 🙂 By shopping in our shop, you will also give it to the refugees on Lesbos. This is not a business. The profit from the oil will feed those who are still stuck in the camp and need our help.
We are still in Greece. We will bottle the oil in the coming days. All your pre-orders will be shipped from 21 August.
