Description

Creta Carob was established in 2006 in Rethymno, at the village of Argyroupoli on Crete island, and started operating in 2011. It is a family-run business focusing on the production of a variety of organic products derived from the pods of the carob tree. Carob has a long history in human nutrition.
The Greek philosopher Theophrastus recorded in 4 BC that his fellow Greeks called the carob ‘the Egyptian fig’.

TOUR AND TASTING

Next to our premises, which unfortunately cannot be visited for quality control reasons, there is a showroom for visitors where they can learn about the carob and its history, taste our products based on carob and prickly pears and make their purchases.
