Terra Creta Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil, has a gold-green hue, with a balanced taste and a long lasting smooth aftertaste. The wonderful fruity aroma, with hints of pear and almonds is due to the "Koroneiki" variety used in this extraordinary olive oil.

It has a rich fruity aroma and a characteristic rich, peppery flavor whose acidity and all other detrimental elements to its quality are maintained at near zero values due to particular care in the cultivation, selection and pressing of the estate crop. Terra Creta Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil "PDO Kolymvari" is subjected to additional and stricter Government inspections and it is certified as to its quality and designation of origin by services of the European Union and the Greek Authorities.

All production phases are controlled by a rigorous and strict quality system, which is based on HACCP principles (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points). Agronomy is the science and technology of producing and using plants for food, fuel, fiber, and reclamation.
Our farmers follow agronomic guidelines and all actions are recorded in a "farming diary". That way we are sure that no unauthorized chemicals are used and that all applications are according to the highest standards of safety. This is confirmed by chemical analysis of the olives, the produced oil and by audits throughout the year.
The Terra Creta mill and bottling plant are certified for oil production and we pride ourselves on being a plasticizer-free factory. A plasticizer is a substance (typically a solvent) added to a synthetic resin to promote plasticity, flexibility and reduce brittleness. In many factories around the world, plasticizers can be found in plastic tubes and equipment; however, medical research has shown plasticizers to be highly carcinogenic. No plastic materials ever come in contact with Terra Creta’s olive oil as it could contaminate the oil.
We recommend to our consumers that they never purchase olive oil supplied in plastic containers. Our oil is also tested to be free from Heavy Metals PAH (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) that traces environmental contamination from combustion engines, i.e. Cars) Dioxins Halogenic Solvents
