About Theodor

About Theodor

I am an agronomist specialized in Organic agriculture and the founder of Themelion project, a team effort of environmentally conscious scientists to preserve and protect the Greek traditional century-old olive groves.

Old olives are very often abandoned. They tend to be replaced by intensified olive farming systems of few global commercial varieties managed with high use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. These have an adverse impact to the environment, the natural resources and the local communities.

Themelion Project aims to protect the century old olive trees which are a part of the Mediterranean ecosystem, by using techniques that can make these trees produce the finest olive oil once again.

Sharing this know-how with other growers who will reflect the same principles with the Themelion Project, we will join forces to produce Themaileon organic olive oil.
I am currently looking for a co-founder to join this food startup and expand the project.
