Produced in the small PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) region of Kolymvari, Crete Gold is pressed from 100% Koroneiki olives. The oil is extraordinarily well-balanced with aromas of green apple, fresh cut grass and artichoke with a pleasantly light peppery finish. Koroneiki olive oil is famous for pairing well with nearly any food such as pulses, bean soups, fresh garden salads, fried potatoes, grilled vegetables and fish, and is a fantastic oil for nearly any cooking application.

Kreta Food has its roots in Southwestern Crete, where in 1908 the ownerÛªs family founded their first olive mill. More than a century later, the company is the principle producer of premium olive oil on the island. Located in a region blessed with abundant sunshine, excellent soil conditions, gentle sea breezes, and a temperate climate, Crete is the ultimate land for cultivating the ultimate fruit. The olives are grown on small family farms where every step of the growing process benefits from the ownersÛª personal attention. The exact moment of ripeness is precisely determined, picking is done by hand, and the olives are crushed within hours. The result is an amazing and unique, fragrant oil.
