Crete is blessed with a wonderful nature, a mild climate and fertile land. The gastronomical heritage of the island originates from antiquity and the Minoan times. The Cretan diet is based on traditional Cretan products, in particular, the olive oil, fish, cheese and a great variety of fruits and vegetables. It is an integral part of the Mediterranean diet and it offers longevity and good health. Meals are always accompanied by the unique Cretan wine or tsikoudia (the local drink). The island is also known for the honey production and wine tradition. It is worth mentioning that the oldest glass of wine was found in Crete and dates back for 3,500 years. Crete products are particularly famous for their excellent quality. Cretan olive oil is actually the best in the world.

Greeks have been cultivating olives for millennia – some even say that Athena gave an olive tree to the city of Athens, thus winning its favor. She granted them wisdom, and since wisdom alone cannot sustain life, she created the olive tree.
Archaeological studies prove that the Greeks have been involved in full-scale cultivation of the olive tree and the production of olive oil for over 4,000 years. The health and therapeutic benefits of olive oil were first mentioned by Hippocrates, the father of Medicine. Modern medical studies have, indeed, shown that the consumption of olive oil (and especially the High Phenolic Extra Virgin Oil variation) is of significant value where human health is concerned, and in particular the health of the heart and circulatory diseases and many diet-related illnesses.
