Terra Creta, was founded in early 2001, by two Cretan visionaries with extensive knowledge and experience in olive oil production and sales.
Our first facility was located in the Souda region of Chania, Crete. From the company’s inception, Terra Creta’s founders focused on increasing exports and, at the same time, sustained a philosophy of corporate stability, consistency and quality, with a deep commitment to the product’s organic characteristics.
One of the first products produced by the company was the PDO Kolymvari Chania Crete Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This legendary olive oil as been recognized the world over, 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
