Bringing a Taste of Greece to The World
You deserve incredible olive oil. Oil from olives soaked in the Grecian sun for months and picked by hand with care. Oil from organic, non-GMO olives, pressed in small batches for taste and freshness… not for mass production.For us, olive oil isn’t just a heart-healthy kitchen essential. Every bottle of Kasandrinos olive oil is a piece of our homeland, made with economic stability, environmental sustainability, and your health in mind.
A Greek Family Tradition
Olive oil has been a central part of the Kasandrinos family for generations. Kasandrinos babies are even baptized with olive oil from our family’s land. In Greece, it’s customary to grow and press your own olive oil for family and friends. So, even after moving to the U.S., our family made sure to bring enough olive oil to enjoy until the next trip back to our family home in Niata, Greece. It was so much a part of our lives that we never realized most people in the U.S. have been drizzling stale olive oil on their food for decades.
Bringing the best olive oil into the wellness space
Our love language is always food and quality time. So when co-founder Tony Kasandrinos would move to a new city, he always brought his family’s olive oil along. And Tony moved a lot in his 22-year career as an active-duty Marine. Back in 2012, he started gifting bottles to friends at a local CrossFit gym, and they were hooked. Everyone agreed: you couldn’t find olive oil like this in the United States. At the same time, Tony realized just how many olive oil brands were cut with other oils or made from poor-quality olives. With the encouragement of friends and family, Tony and his sister Effi decided to bring a little bit of Greece over to America, and Kasandrinos was formed.
A Growing Community
With Kasandrinos, we took a leap of faith that people stateside would care about the quality of their olive oil. And we were right. More and more health-enthusiasts and foodies started tasting and feeling the difference from our single-origin, small-batch, organic oil. Since then, the team has grown to include our cousin Efrosyni as the Creative Director. We’ve expanded to sell on Amazon. And we’re still proud to sell every bottle of olive oil and vinegar directly to you. No middleman. No bottles sitting on shelves for months. Just fresh, single-origin oil and vinegar, from our family to yours.
Bringing Culture and Tradition to Your Table
The products we bring to your table are more than just food. They’re from the land our family has tended for generations. It’s the olive oil we were raised with. The foods that bring us together. We hope that you’ll taste the care that goes into every bottle. From hand-picking the olives to crushing, bottling, and shipping in a way that nurtures the land and the people who tend it. And most of all, we hope Kasandrinos can bring you a little bit of the country we love to your family’s table.
