Amfora gives the farmers the respect they deserve by paying them a significant premium for their products and supporting their journey to become fully regenerative producers.
We know all our producers and carefully select new farmers that are closely aligned with our values. We foster long-term partnerships that enable farmers to grow and increase their production of high-quality, sustainable EVOO.
We started off working with farmers in Greece but are rapidly expanding our network of producers across the Mediterranean, adding producers in Turkey and Spain. Amfora aims to become the go-to platform for family-run producers and co-operatives throughout the region.

We talk a lot about putting farmers at the heart of Amfora’s mission. But what do the farmers actually think about working with us? Find out what they have to say about it and what this partnership means for them.
“The prices Amfora pays gives us small producers better prospects to make our olive oil. Sustainability is something we’re interested in. . . We want to continue the production of quality product. I’ve made a lot of steps for the development of my fields.”
“Because of the higher prices compared with the home market, Amfora helped me to improve my cultivation. . . I have [added] unexploited fields and 150 new olive trees and want to expand further. I want to assure every customer . . . that my olive oil is rich in polyphenols and made with love and passion.”
