Kalamata olives, named after the city of Kalamata in the southern Peloponnese of Greece, are large, dark brown olives with a smooth, thick texture. In the EU (and other countries that have ratified PDO agreements and similar laws), the name is protected as PDO and can only be used for Kalamata olives (and olive oil).
They are much milder than black olives, but have a sweet, fruity flavor with a sharp edge. Gaea's Kalamata olives are aged in the sun. Because they are exposed to the sun while still on the tree, their color becomes a natural black. They are rich in dietary fiber and vitamin E, and contain unsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols. These olives are delicious as a snack or for entertaining. No preservatives, low salt. Enjoy the authentic taste of Greece.

Use as an appetizer with dried tomatoes, feta cheese, blue cheese, almonds, and other Mediterranean ingredients. Kalamata olives are also a great addition to grilled fish, pasta, and other dishes.
Kalamata is the second largest city in the Peloponnese. The Venetian Republic took control of Kalamatain 1685, during which time the city was fortified and the economy of the city developed.
After traveling in search of the best olive oil, Gaea found Kalamata.
The region of Kalamata, P.D.O., is located in the southwestern part of the Peloponnese.
Its vast olive groves overlook the Ionian Sea and are the birthplace of the world's most popular olive variety, Koroneiki. The fresh, blue, hand-picked Koroneiki olives are used to produce a very well-balanced olive oil with a peppery, almond aftertaste.
Kalamata is also an important port city
In the mid-1990s, Greece was producing a variety of top-quality foods due to its fertile soil and excellent climate, but it was difficult to find Greek products in the international market. GAEA was founded in 1995 with a vision to spread the high quality and taste of Greek produce internationally.
Gaea is a goddess in Greek mythology and is considered to be a symbol of the earth. Gaeia's mission is to bring delicious and healthy olives and olive oil nurtured by Gaeia, the goddess of the earth, to everyone's table.
Gaea is the Greek word for "earth.
