Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

According to history, olive tree was first cultivated from the Minoan civilization between 3500-2500 BC. In Crete, the olive tree was worshiped as a sacred tree and symbolized peace, prosperity, knowledge, wisdom and hope, and because of its importance, it was directly related to culture, religion, nutrition and health.
 

The Minoans knew the beneficial properties of olive oil and they cultivated it in the same way as today. The geographical location of Crete, the climatic conditions prevailing on the island and the soil composition give Cretan olive oil a unique flavor and aroma.
 

Extra virgin olive oil comes mainly from the Koroneiki variety cultivated mostly in the island and it is obtained only by mechanical methods. The prevailing conditions during washing, transfusion, centrifugation and filtration do not cause any deterioration to the olive oil. It is a "natural juice" containing intact all its essential ingredients such as vitamins, trace elements etc.
 

It is the main ingredient of the Mediterranean and especially the Cretan diet. It has received significant distinctions and awards at international competitions, while at all international nutrition conferences it is proposed as an essential element of healthy eating.
