Company Introduction

Today, Spain and Italy are the world leaders in commercial olive oil production, followed by Greece.
Other important olive-producing countries are Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco, Syria, and Portugal.
Europe, with nearly 500 million olive trees, has more than three-quarters of the world's cultivated olives, followed by Asia.
Concerning Greek olive oil production is useful to point out the following:
From the 19th century until our days a large number of incentives were given to individual producers, thus today Greece, despite its small size possesses the third position among olive oil producers in the world using the most advanced methods and the most sophisticated technologies.
But this position is false, taking into account that over 70% of the total Greek production is Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Half of that is exported to other olive oil productive countries (like Italy for example) raising their official ratio.
In fact Greece is the world's largest exporter of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. About one third of the total production (Extra Virgin and Virgin) is exported. The remaining quantity gives Greece the first position in per capita consumption at world level. The tradition of the production of olive oil spans more than five millennia in Grecian area.
Unquestionably, the Greek olive oil is by far the best in the world.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Is the natural juice of the olive without further processing beyond cold pressing. Its acidity does not exceed 0. 7% of olive acid. It's packaged with the label "Extra Virgin Olive Oil".
Top quality Extra Virgin Olive oil by Family Iraklis Papadakis. From the world famous Sitia region. This extremely well balanced oil combines full flavor and aroma with a surprisingly mild after taste, making it one of the best olive oils in the world. The extra virgin olive oil with the protected designation of origin SITIA produced by the Union of Agricultural Cooperatives of Sitia has won a considerable number of international awards just some of which are:
2002. The Mario Solinas 1st Prize in the International Quality Contest held by the International Olive Oil Council for the Intense Fruitiness Section.
2001. The Mario Solinas 1st Prize in the International Quality Contest held by the International Olive Oil Council for the Intense Fruitiness Section.
1999. The "Leone d' Oro" Prize in the international SOL'99 contest held in Verona, Italy.
1977 / 8. 1st prize for the Virgin harmony category in the international contest Patrimonio Communal Olivarero held in Spain
The farmers of Sitia harvest and cold press the olives before they ripen because the young, early harvest olive contains oil of superior quality and lower acidity. This early harvest extra virgin olive oil is vibrant, fresh, and full flavored but not heavy.
These factors, along with the benevolent climate and rich soil which are ideal for olive cultivation, and the extensive knowlege of the farmers of Crete (where olive oil has been produced since at least 3, 000 B. C.) are the main reasons for the premium quality and flavor of Papadakis Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Sitia.
