Description

Galeni is a family business with a long tradition in cheese making and is based close to Rokani Temenous of Heraklion, Crete producing a novel Cretan creamy cheese, as well as traditional products using age-old methods in new and modern facilities.
Visitors arriving at a hilly rural region for agriculture and livestock encounter the beauty of nature, animals, and the oldest and Crete’s best-preserved Byzantine church, that of Panagia Galeniani, which was the inspiration for the name of our business and its products.
