Our farmers follow agronomic guidelines and all actions are recorded in a "farming diary". That way we are sure that no unauthorised 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 plasticiser factory. A plasticiser is a substance (typically a solvent) added to a synthetic resin to promote plasticity, flexibility and reduce brittleness. In many factories around the world, plasticisers can be found in plastic tubes and equipment; however, medical research has shown plasticisers 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
A good virgin oil.
I lived in Crete so I may well be biased, but I think this oil is just divine. I use it for everything!
