Our Story – Hellenic Gift

The Hellenic Gift Story

WHO IS THE TEAM BEHIND HELLENIC GIFT?

We are a family run business that started with the desire to bring high quality Greek produce to Australia. We are proud Greek Australians that maintain strong links to our Hellenic Heritage. 

Con and Chris have worked together to build the Hellenic Gift brand and are extremely proud of what they have created. Everything goes into the business with passion and pride and we strive for perfection.

WHY DID WE START HELLENIC GIFT?

Every time we travelled to Greece, we would marvel at the vitality of the people and the quality of their fresh produce. However, upon returning to Australia we would always crave their incredibly delicious Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

For many years we brought back a large 20L drum of Olive Oil. We would disperse half of it to family and friends, and use the other half in our cooking. However, as the years went on, we were getting more and more requests to bring back larger quantities. Everybody was addicted and loved the Olive Oil.

We then decided to personally source and select the finest quality and organic products direct from Greece and bring them to Australia. We sell online and direct to the public with a mission of providing our customers with the highest quality products at the lowest possible price. We want everyone to be able to enjoy these Hellenic Gifts.

WHAT MAKES GREEK PRODUCE SO SPECIAL?

Greece has a geographical and historical advantage in producing certain foods and is blessed with centuries of knowledge and heritage in premium and organic foods. Greece is a small, mostly sea locked country with an incredible mountainous terrain that aids dramatically in the cultivation of certain produce. Their climate and landscape is truly unique. We believe the “terroir” in Greece is specifically suited to producing the highest quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Honey, and Tea. 

We have specifically chosen these products because of their exceptional health qualities and taste.

WHERE DO YOU STORE YOUR PRODUCTS?

We store our products in a cool, temperature controlled storage facility in order to maintain optimum product freshness and quality.

They are not exposed to any harsh fluorescent lighting, direct sunlight or heat as this can destroy the quality of the produce.

We aim to deliver high-quality products to you in their best possible condition.
