Terra Creta, was founded in early 2001, by two Cretan visionaries with extensive knowledge and experience in olive oil production and sales. One of the first products produced by the company was the PDO Kolymvari Chania Crete Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This legendary olive oil has been recognized over the world and the tradition continues today.
A need for more advanced and spacious facilities emerged in 2007, due to the rapid increase in demand for our exceptional products. Since 2009, Terra Creta has operated from the new site in the heart of Crete’s most renowned region for olive oil production - Kolymvari, Western Crete. The state-of-the-art production facilities are equipped with the most modern production lines, high capacity stainless steel tanks, and one of the most advanced olive mills available. Terra Creta produces their extra virgin olive oil in several different categories (PDO, PGI, Organic etc.) and a variety of packaging (tins, glass bottles, glass spray bottles, etc.) to suit all markets.
At the core of the business is the production and promotion of superior quality extra virgin olive oil from the certified Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) region of Kolymvari, to international consumers around the world. In order to achieve this demanding goal, Terra Creta has instituted the strictest international standards, having our Quality and Management System certified by the HACCP, ISO 22000/2005, ISO 9001:2008 and ECOCERT, USDA/NOP,KRAV, IFS, KOSHER while being allocated with the EL-40-027 code by the EU for the production of exclusively Cretan Olive Oil.
