Terra Creta, was founded in early 2001, by Cretan visionaries with extensive knowledge and experience in olive oil production and sales.

The 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 and other quality 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 these exceptional products.

Terra Creta takes great pride in providing important production information to our consumers. In 2006, an innovative on-line traceability system was launched, called the Traceability Tree.  By entering a product’s five-digit lot number on the Traceability Tree webpage at www.terracreta.gr, consumers can view detailed information about harvesting dates, quality, bottling and packaging stages.  They may even view satellite photographs of the very olive groves where the olives for their specific bottle of olive oil were produced.
