2017/18 harvest for Halkidiki looking good (30/08/2017)
It is the time of the year that all of us who are involved in the olive oil business go through the nail biting period as we try to figure out what the harvest will be.
ELEONES for the last seven years is working closely with farmers and this time of the year, only a few weeks away from the start of the harvesting period, we get together and we exchange views about the prospects of the harvest. Every single year no matter how well we prepare the last word is upon mother nature! Sometimes she’s kind to us and sometimes not. But this is something we all accepted by working with natural products and not industrial ones.
So as we as we approach the harvesting period, the weather seems to have done us the favour . After the recent beneficial rains the ELEONES cooperating farmers report that the year will be better than last year. We believe that this is the case in general for Halkidiki.
Bottom line the ELEONES team is optimistic about the prospects of this year’s harvest. More about it in a few weeks’ time.
