CRETAN SELECTED EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OILS

100 % CRETAN, THE BEST PDO AREAS OF CRETE

Crete is an island with 8 internationally recognized, protected Designation of Origin areas. 90% of the oil produced on the island every year is extra virgin olive oil. Because of its geographical position in the very South of Europe, the effect the sea has on the olives, the island’s terrain and its perfect sunshine and soil conditions, Crete is internationally recognised as the ideal place to grow olive trees.

 

100 % EXTRA VIRGIN

The best quality olive oil, produced exclusively by mechanical methods (i.e. without using any chemicals) with a maximum acidity of 0.5 % (oleic acid) per 100g. Your first choice for all your cooking as it does not lose any of its nutritional value during the production process.

100 % COLD EXTRACTION

In the olive mill, the temperature during the production process never exceeds 27oC. The temperature of the olive paste is never above 27oC which means that the oil never loses any of its nutritional value.

 

100 % VARIETY OF KORONEIKI

Koroneiki is the internationally recognized “Queen” of Greek olive varieties. It is one of the best varieties for oil in the entire world. Koroneiki has one great asset: the olives don’t fall off the trees, they stay attached to the branches which means that the olives used to make the oil never come into contact with the soil.
