Did you know that the oldest olive trees in the world are in Crete? Aging from 2000-3000 years old. Most of the trees are of the Tsounati variety and theses olives naturally produce high phenolic compounds. This is the home of Pamako, award winning olive oil for its taste and health protective benefits. We love this article, “The Past, Present and Bright Future of Crete’s Lifeblood”, a nice insight to the dedication of the olive oil producers, who combine age old traditions with their visions for a bright future.
