More About Aria
Aria’s founder, Emmanuel Daskalakis, brings you his special extra virgin olive oil crushed from olives grown in the sun-rich soil and sea-salt air on the island of Crete. Here the olives are nurtured to perfection and upon reaching their optimal ripeness, they are harvested and with uncompromising integrity, transformed into an oil of exceptionally high quality. A chef favorite, Aria is beloved for its distinctive smooth flavor, aroma and low acidity.
Kreta Food has its roots in Southwestern Crete, where in 1908 the owner's family founded their first olive mill. More than a century later, the company is the principal 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.
