About us

Mission and vision

We founded Amfora to redefine the olive oil industry and help create a sustainable food system.

Most olive oil comes small, family-run producers that apply traditional methods of cultivation: low/zero chemicals, spring or rain-fed irrigation, manual pruning and harvesting.

But things are changing fast.

Impact and sustainability

For us, impact and sustainability are the reasons we founded Amfora in the first place. It is the compass that guides our every step. But what exactly does that mean in practice?

Regenerative agriculture to solve climate change

One liter of our olive oil absorbs over 5 kg of CO2 from the air and stores it in roots, fruits, branches, soil and leaves.

preserve biodiversity

The fewer chemicals (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) our farmers use, the higher the prices we pay.

Maintaining rural communities and traditions

Large commercial farms and supermarkets mean olive oil prices can be too low for farmers, especially those cultivating smaller plots.
