    The Acropolis Organics Difference

    Acropolis Organics Other Companies

    CULTIVATION

    ✅ We use organic fertilizers (sheep manure, olive leaves and tree mulch) and remove weeds through mechanical means.
    ❌ They use chemicals and pesticides such as RoundUp to kill the weeds. RoundUp kills everything in the ground, including the friendly microorganisms that are important for the growth of the olive tree & the nutritional value of the olives.
    ✅ We use natural pest control such as traps with orange juice for insects that damage the olives.
    ❌ They use pesticides that are toxic to kill these insects. The olive fruit absorbs these toxins; therefore, our bodies do too.
    ✅ Our orchards are elevated, with rolling hills. We have a limited harvest to ensure the highest quality.
    ❌ They mass produce in a linear fashion.
    ✅ We have more sunlight hours per year and higher altitude. Our perfect environment yields great tasting olives without the addition of artificial flavours.
    ❌ They have fewer sunlight hours and lower altitude. Poor environment lowers the quality of the olives, which is then masked by adding artificial flavours.
    ✅ We handpick our olives.
    ❌ They use big mechanical tractors, which hit the trees, bruise the olives and weaken the roots of the tree.
    ✅ Our ingredients are certified organic and locally sourced.
    ❌ They source their olives from various farms and cannot guarantee consistent quality or organic olives.

                                                                                                       CURING

    ✅ Our olives are cured in traditional brine (local spring water and local sea salt), resulting in the presence of probiotic bacteria.
    ❌ They cure their olives in caustic soda or sodium hydroxide to decrease the duration of the curing process. This destroys the health benefits of the olives and the probiotic bacteria.
    ✅ We take the time to cure our olives naturally.
    ❌ They use chemicals to speed up the process of curing.
    ✅ Our olives keep their natural shape and do not need to be manipulated with chemicals.
    ❌ When speeding up the process of curing, they have to use other chemicals, such as sorbic acid, to prevent the fruit from dissolving.
    ✅ We use organic grape vinegar to reduce the PH of the brine.
    ❌ They use acetic acid, a chemical base, to reduce the PH.
    ✅ We bring you real kalamata olives.
    ❌ They do not sell kalamata olives, which are only found in Greece.
    ✅ Our olives do not need to be treated to disguise their colour. They are already dark in colour.
    ❌ Their olives are cured with lye and exposed to the air to trigger oxidation, which can change the colour of a green olive into a black olive to mimic kalamata olives.
    ✅ Each olive is slightly different in colour. This is because they are left in their natural state without the use of dyes or acids.
    ❌ To keep the green colour, they use ascorbic acid. The olives are further dyed so that they can all look the same.

                                                                                                   PACKAGING

    ✅ We do not need to sterilize our olives with high temperatures.
    ✅ They have to sterilize the olives using a higher temperature than usual, which can further kill nutrients.
    ✅ From harvesting to curing the olives and packing them, everything is done on a family orchard in Argolida, Peloponnese, Greece, to ensure the highest quality possible.
    ❌ Each step of the process takes place at different sites, different cities and different countries, which leads to problems with quality control.
