The land of Crete

From the time of the ancient Minoans to the present, Cretan olive oil has always been the main ingredient of the Cretan diet, a diet which has become iconic of wholesome nutrition worldwide.

Which are the elements that make Cretan olive oil stand apart?

Cretan olive oil owes its quality traits to:

  • The temperate climate prevalent on the island of Crete, especially during autumn and winter, a period during which the olive oil begins to swell within the olive fruit.  
  • The soil conditions whose particularity favours olive growing.
  • The olive varieties thriving on the island.

Those are the reasons why everyone agrees that the Cretan olive and its olive oil rank at the very top in terms of quality and nutritional value.
