MALVA was founded in 1998 in the robust countryside of Agios Nikolaos, Monemvasia in the Lakonia region of Greece and today, their award-winning olives are pressed into some of the most sought after extra virgin olive oil in the world. These oils are imported to America by none other than Lakonia Imports.
Dedicated to continuing the family tradition of providing the precious “golden liquid” known as extra virgin olive oil to the world, Peter Marules founded Lakonia Imports as a premier food procurement company and purveyor of culinary excellence in 2018.
Peter Marules of Lakonia Imports, in partnership with his cousin Nikos Maroulakos’s company MALVA Olives & Olive Oil, strives to bring a little piece of Greek culture and heritage to the great state of Texas and beyond!
"Came across Lakonia Imports at the Greek Festival this past weekend... very very nice family!! Knowledgeable and sold us the most delicious Malva Extra Virgin olive oil and most delicious Papadim’s balsamic vinegar!! I’ve used them every day since and will go back to them when these empty. Also looking forward to their gift baskets. Thank you to the Marules Family!"
