Olive oil is a Mediterranean staple that has been around since ancient Greece, where it was once stored in Aryballos oil pot, which were used by Olympians and aristocrats alike. Taking inspiration from this, the packaging created for Ladolea's organic extra virgin olive oil by Melissi & Co. revives the shape of this ancient Greek pot. Ladolea's olive oil pot is designed to be highly ergonomic and is the perfect size for holding about a month's worth of oil. The containers present themselves beautifully and have a built-in cap and pour spout that prevents leaks and spills.

As well as preserving tradition, the shape and opacity of the oil pot also protects the extra virgin olive oil inside from being damaged by light to provide the optimal aroma and taste.
