Crete

The far eastern end of Crete boasts amazing landscapes, famous archaeological sites, and a history of olive oil production going back 5,000 years. That’s the inheritance of the Agricultural Cooperative of Zakros.


The farmers of Zakros all share the same terroir. The soil is stony, forcing the trees to fight for water and producing good quality fruit resistant to pests. The association coordinates the agriculture of 500 farmers in the area, some big, some small, helping them minimizing inputs like fertilizer, providing them with state of the art milling facilities, and coordinating their marketing activities.


Together they make a unique koroneiki, low acidity (0.65%), extra virgin olive oil, aromatic, balanced and with a wonderful buttery taste, with just the right amount of spiciness for it to be used for everything:sauces, frying, cooking as well as on salads and as a standalone apero, drizzled on bread. Zakros Coop carries the lowest price in our range,but we think it’s likely to be one of the best extra virgin olive oils you’ve ever tasted.
