Terra Creta
Terra Creta was founded in the beginning of 2001 from two Cretans with deep knowledge and long experience on olive oil production and promotion. Today, Terra Creta operates from the new owned facilities in the heart of Olive Oil production, in Kolymvari at western Crete. Our state of the art new facilities are equipped with the most modern production lines, high capacity stainless steel tanks, the most advanced in Greece olive oil mill, all of them aiming in higher quality and safety standards and full satisfaction of our customers.  
 
The core of our business is to produce and promote to the international consumers, superior quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil, also from the certified Protected Designation of Origin region of Kolymvari, Hania, Crete. In 2012, the company traded 1200 tones of superior category Extra Virgin Olive Oil and achieved a turnover of €5,100,000, 75% of which comes from exports.
 
Our philosophy is to operate from a solid scientific base in every step of the production as well as on principles of self-reliance, innovation and environmental consciousness. This philosophy results to an excellent outcome -quality, taste, innovation - which has, till now, established our presence in more than 20 worldwide markets.
 
Terra Creta focuses on providing all the necessary information to the consumer, and launches two international innovations:
 
  • By declaring the 6 basic quality parameters of every batch at the front label of each product, Terra Creta enables the consumer to approach detailed information about the quality of the batch.
  • Terra Creta’s innovative Trace Olive Oil system allows the consumer to see the origin of each product through the company’s web-site: www.terracreta.gr. By the LOT number of each item, our consumer is able to view detailed information about the quality, bottling and packaging stages of our product and to see a satellite photograph with the olive groves where the olives for his specific bottle of olive oil were produced.
Moreover, Terra Creta moves ahead, by launching the new range of products in spray bottles. The extraordinary sprays, Oh!live Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamicoh! balsamic Vinegar of Crete (also available in Organic), are particularly designed for those who look for modern and easy products, enabling also to keep under control their calories intake, since each spray vaporizes 1 calorie per spray!
