Cranberries, walnuts and maple, oh my! Each bite of Viki's Maple Cranberry Granola is packed with Omega-3 goodnessand a punch of dried cranberries.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The P.D.O. region of Kalamata in the southwest Peloponnese, overlooking the Ionian Sea is a vast olive grove. The fresh, green handpicked Koroneiki olives used solely for the production of this “cold-pressed” superior category Extra Virgin Olive Oil, deliver an extremely well-balanced olive oil with a unique pepper and almond aftertaste.  


KALAMATA OLIVE HALVES Gaea Kalamata olive halves are derived from olives that mature and get their black color naturally on the tree. They are thus, not only the tastiest but also the healthiest option for your pizzas, salads, casseroles, sandwiches, pasta sauces, fish dishes or to create your own olive bruschetta.
