Life Journey

Constantine Potou

Our ‘’Francogrec’’ journey throughout the years sailing in an olive oil sea Poitier-Marseille-Kalamata- Athens

Our ancestor Jacques Nicolas Potou traveler, cultivator and merchant of olive oil and wine from Poitier in France, arrived in Greece in the first half of the 19th century after a few-years stay in Marseille. He settled in Sifnos Island in the Aegean where his familygrew along with the cultivation of olives and wine production. My grandfather, Constantin Potou, was his descendant.

The french family united with my mother’s, Evridiki Makri, greek family at Kalamata region in Messinia, with extensive family tradition in the cultivation of koroneiki variety olives and Kalamata olives.

We, their descendants, live in modern Athens and loyally continue the longstanding tradition. Our family’s deep knowledge of cultivation, the unique ability to create delicious flavors from the pure and generous greek nature, our immense respect towards nature and our scientific knowledge and modern technology literacy form the thread uniting our greek and french origin.

Our intention is to bring out only the purest of what this blessed land generously offers us, our own Greece, and spread that to the other unforgettable home France and to the rest of the world.

We are the third generation of olive oil producers and are grateful to our Greek and French ancestors, but foremost we are delighted to share with you all our valued products in an unforgettable culinary journey.
