To help her spread the health benefits of the Greek diet as widely as possible, Eleni takes advantage of new technologies and modern methods. Her focus on producing high-quality products has led to numerous awards in international competitions, such as:


  • Gold Medal for Wild Athos Golden Tree PDO Agoureleo Chalkidikis, Aristoleo Awards
  • Gold Award for Wild Athos Golden Tree PDO Agoureleo Chalkidikis, Olympia Health & Nutrition Awards
  • Gold Authentic Taste of Greece 2020, Greek Taste Beyond Borders
  • Gold Awards authentic Greek taste award from the Greek Taste Beyond Borders® GTBB


In addition, she donates part of Golden Tree products for scientific research purposes to several studies and programmes: Harvard University's Feeding America's Bravest study of the Mediterranean diet for firefighters; the Interreg Mediterranean Aristoil project focused on the healthiness of olive oil; and studies of the benefits of olive oil polyphenols at the World Olive Center for Health in Athens and the UC Davis Olive Center in California.

In the frame of the ORGANIC ECOSYSTEM project, she is developing a business plan on an innovative idea concerning the use of olive tree leaves to fight Alzheimer's disease.
