The Cretans call their Olive Oil the"Gold of the South", because it is one of the most significant things in their lives
Every year in November, it doesn’t matter where we are or what we are doing, all the members of our family are going back to the roots. For the harvest of our olives we all come back to Zakros, a small village in the mountains of Crete. Olive oil, is one of the most important things in the life of the people of Crete. This is why, they all take the heavy work of harvesting not as a burden but as something self-evident. The tradition of cultivating olive trees is passed down from generation to generation with respect to nature and the environment. Our venture started in 2008 with a small business, since then we have amassed experience and have grown our business respectably. Having been internationally awarded with various prizes several times our beliefs in honesty and quality have been confirmed. Quality is our success!
