Crete, a Greek island full of legends, offers the ideal Mediterranean climate for olives: Warm summers, mild winters, and little rain provide the best conditions for olive cultivation.
BIO PLANÈTE Olive Oil Extra Virgin Crete P.G.I. originates from the sun-blessed region Chania in the island’s Northwest. The exclusiveness of this oil lies in its protected geographical indication (P.G.I.). This means that at least one step of the production (production, processing, manufacture) has to occur in the indicated area. The Koroneiki olives for this exquisite single varietal oil are hand-picked from more than 10,000 olive trees our partner cultivates.
This oil lends lots of freshness with a pleasantly Mediterranean note to your dishes, it harmonizes perfectly with raw vegetables, warm vegetable preparations and Greek feta cheese. Fruity and balanced, it caresses the palate with fine nuances of fresh herbs and lemon.
