Critida SA is a family-run business with great experience and know-how in the production of olive oil.
The company was founded in Heraklion Crete in 1998 with the aim of standardizing and marketing olive oil. The company specializes in trading extra virgin and organic olive oil and produces olive paste, regular and organic, olives and delicatessen products, combining extra virgin olive oil with traditional Cretan herbs such as thyme, rosemary, garlic, and paprika.

Visitors can observe and participate in the process of bottling olive oil as well as the standardization of delicatessen products in conventional or organic olive oil with conventional or organic flavors (thyme, rosemary, basil, oregano, lemon, garlic, pepper) and blending extra virgin olive oil with essential oils (wasabi, chili, blood orange, basil, chocolate, truffle).
From November to late January, one can watch the process of harvesting olives, tour our company’s olive groves, and observe olive oil production in a family-run olive mill in the Messara area.
