CRETALEA our history
The family business "DIMITRAKI" lasts five consecutive generations.
In the mill the main mechanism was the millstones that were rotated with the horses and mashed the olive fruit.
When the pulp was ready, it was transferred to special bags and placed in a press with a screw, so that the oil came out.
Later, the first son of Grandpa Polychronis, Georgios Dimitrakis, replaced our olive mill from a horse-drawn to a motor-powered one with the help of electricity, so that the oil came out faster and more carefree. In 2014 all the machines were replaced with a new state-of-the-art unit so that the oil quality is excellent !!!
Also in 2017 our company started the packaging - standardization of olive oil in order to highlight this quality product of ours.
Olive oil is stored in stainless steel tanks in a dark and cool place, so that the quality remains constant.
