<< You who care about your health and beauty! Recommended for >> 【The story begins with a coffee shop】 Sakawa Corporation, the parent company of Hodakamura, is a blackboard manufacturer that has been in business for 100 years. On December 8, 1976, when the blackboard shop building was being rebuilt in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture, the company started a coffee shop, Hotaka-mura, on the first floor.
When he added homemade dressing to the snacks on the menu, it became popular among customers, and many asked him to sell it. This was the beginning of Hodaka Village's dressing production. After that, we began to produce olive oil, which we loved, and in 2018, we were able to commercialize olive oil with a truly delicious and satisfying taste and quality, using our experience as a dressing manufacturer for over 40 years.

Commitment of 【HIME-LIA olive oil】 HIME-LIA Olive Oil was developed in response to doubts about the safety of commercial olive oils and the deterioration of their taste due to oxidation.
Our commitment to freshness In order to maintain the freshness of olive oil to the maximum extent possible, we import olives harvested in Spain, the home of olives, and freeze them immediately.
They are then thawed and pressed at our factory in Toon City, Ehime Prefecture.
This process has been patented. 【Commitment to raw materials】The olives used in this product are grown by contract farmers in Teruel, Aragón, Spain.
The use of pesticides is forbidden in Spain due to legal regulations on pesticide spraying. It is very safe and one of the reasons why Spain is so proud of its olives.This is one of the reasons why Spain is so proud of its olives.
Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version) 【Flavored olive oil boasts citrus fruits from Ehime Prefecture】All the citrus fruits used in our flavored olive oil come from Ehime Prefecture. Rather than adding flavors, we press the citrus peels together with the olive fruit to maximize the flavor and taste.
【No fragrance is used】Our popular Iyokan, Yuzu, and Lemon flavored olive oils are not flavored.
The peels of the citrus fruits from Ehime are pressed together with the olive fruit to create a flavored olive oil with the highest quality aroma and taste. 【Nutrition and efficacy of olive oil】 Olive oil is 100% olive juice made by squeezing fruits. The main component is oleic acid. It is an omega-9 unsaturated fatty acid and is said to be an oil that does not easily oxidize.
This oleic acid is known to...
・Reduces bad cholesterol without decreasing good cholesterol in the blood
・Suppresses the accumulation of neutral fat
・Stimulates the intestines to prevent constipation.
Other antioxidant nutrients such as polyphenols and vitamin E are also contained.

【Environmental consideration】It takes 60 kg of olive fruit to produce one batch of oil.
Even so, only 10% of the oil is produced.
Most of the raw material is left as "pomace".
It would be a waste to dispose of the oil after each pressing.
It puts a burden on the environment.
We have been working with Ehime Prefectural Iyo Agricultural High School to establish a way to reuse the oil.
In 2020, we succeeded in harvesting olive mushrooms using olive pomace as a culture medium, and we are continuing our research for mass production.
