“If the roots are deep, you do not need to fear the wind” says an old Chinese proverb. The trees with the deepest roots are those that grow the highest. A tree that grows from strong roots becomes stronger. It spreads out; it constantly changes its horizon. And thereby gains new insights.
The roots of Artem Oliva go back a story began in 1960s, when two close friends Mustafa Candeger and Ali Naci Akman, who are also our grandfathers have come up with a dream idea: to create the purest extra virgin olive oil in a local mill with the combination of their passion and wide know-how on olives grown in Aegean Region of Turkey where nestles on the coast of the Aegean Sea, an arm of the Mediterranean. This area is known to produce world’s finest quality olives and these two close friends simply wanted locals to experience the amazing sensation of tasting and using fresh, organic, 100% pure Mediterranean Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
During the following years, we have treated the graceful olives like a piece of art and the success of our products has built a strong reputation in the local market and encouraged us to expand our business to the worldwide.
Now, 60 years later, grandsons Can Candeger and Murat Akman, who are inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of their grandfathers, blends our tradition and passion with innovation by maintaining the heritage of the family.
We have committed ourselves to the ongoing responsibility for reinforcing, managing and developing our brand, Artem Oliva, in order to enhance their value. Our brand values are the foundation that ensures a path to a successful future for our businesses.
