Traveling to Greece, Zelos tips: Kalamata, and the famous Kalamata olives

WHICH ARE THE BEST OLIVES IN THE WORLD?

Why, Kalamáta olives, of course! But did you know that the city behind the olives is just as special?! The soil in this part of the Messinía region is so fertile - anything that grows here is pure and flavorful and so full of nutrients. The olives, figs, raisins, oranges, lemons and so many other local products are at the top of the Mediterranean Diet pillars that you should incorporate into your daily cooking.

But of course it's the olive that reigns here and thanks to our partner, Tragano Greek Organics, we have firm and delicious organic Kalamata olives that they hand-select to ensure only the best quality pitted olives make it down the production line. They're then packed in an all-natural brine of water, organic vinegar, and sea salt. Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors, or colorants.

Kalamáta is a great place to start off any tour of the southern Peloponnese, including the Mani peninsula. The city is built along a beautiful sandy beach and has a nice little old town beneath the ruins of the Kalamata castle, which is definitely worth a visit. Enjoy getting to know the places where your favorite foods are from!
