EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
An extra virgin olive oil, LEYA is produced to the highest standards by cold pressing olives homegrown and hand-picked in Egypt. Only the oil released in the first press of the olives is utilised, meaning only the finest olive oil flows directly into LEYA bottles.
LEYA is a reference to natural wellness, ancient tradition, and a feeling of loyalty to one's roots, both historical and culinary. At the beginning of this history is the humble olive, whose trees have grown in Egypt for millennia.
In the southern and eastern nations of the Mediterranean, the olive is a symbol of purity, wellbeing, and health. In Ancient Egypt, it was so highly valued that the pharaohs were buried with olives to eat in the afterlife. Historically known in Greece as "elaiolado", and in Italy as "olio d'oliva", LEYA is a proud testament to Egypt's own olive-growing heritage.
An extra virgin olive oil, LEYA is produced to the highest standards by cold pressing Koroneiki olives homegrown and hand-picked in Egypt. Only the oil released in the first press of the olives is utilised, meaning only the finest olive oil flows directly into LEYA bottles.

FRESH FROM THE FARM
The extra virgin olive oil in this bottle was pressed from olives harvested from the fertile soil of Ismailia alongside Egypt's Eastern Coast, famous as the home of lemons, mangoes, and figs. The olive oil derived from these olives is full-bodied, aromatic, and intensely flavoured. It's beautiful green colour mirrors the bountiful lands from which it is sourced, deep in the heart of the Ismailia Governorate.
The extra virgin olive oil in this bottle was pressed from olives grown in the rocky earth and mountainous terrain of Sinai. Purified by mountain air, the resulting oil is exceptionally smooth and offers a slightly milder taste than other olive oils, ensuring it doesn't overpower the palate. The golden colour of this oil is typical of olives grown at high altitude and is reflective of its origins from the Sinai Peninsula.
