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.
