Extra Virgin Olive Oil

According to history, the olive tree was cultivated for the first time during the Minoan Civilization between 3500-2500 B.C. In Crete, the olive tree was blessed as a holy tree and it represented peace, prosperity, knowledge, wisdom and hope. It was connected to the civilization, to religion, diet and health.
Minoan people knew the beneficial nature of olive oil and they cultivated it in almost the same way as today. The geographical position of Crete, its climate , as well as its soil, give Cretan olive oil a unique taste and flavour.
The Extra Virgin Oil comes from the “koroneiki” variety, which is cultivated in the biggest part of the island and it is extracted only with mechanical methods, under conditions that do not tamper with the oil throughout the process, from the washing of the olives, to the transfusion, centrifugation and filtration. It is a “natural juice” which has all its ingredients intact, like microelements, vitamins and trace minerals.
It is the main ingredient in the Mediterranean and especially in the Cretan diet and it has received important distinctions and awards in international exhibitions. It is also recommended as a necessary element in a healthy diet at international nutritional conferences.
