What does the name “Kalamata” mean?
Kalamata is the name of a city in the southern Peloponnese region of Greece, where the Kalamata olives originated. In fact, Kalamata is a term protected under protected designation of origin status, meaning that only Kalamatas from the Peloponnese region are allowed to be called such – otherwise, they should be called Kalamon olives.
At Laconiko, we use only the finest Kalamata olives that are hand-picked to ensure their freshness and quality.
