The company was established in Strakka Estate, which appears on Abraham Ortelius’s map of 1573, having a story of more than 60 years in olive oil production. The estate was always known for its olive oil production. Currently, Strakka owns an area of 50 hectares with 9000 olive trees, including Koroneiki, Kalamon and Cyprus olive varieties growing organically since 1998. Since then, soil is not cultivated remaining undisturbed in order to allow the enhancement of micro-organisms in the soil as well as the tree roots. The trees are carefully managed to establish maximum growth and healthy, productive olive trees. Aim of the company is the production of high-quality organic olive oil with increased polyphenol content. To achieve this, milling and bottling facilities have been developed onsite. The fruits are harvested in optimum maturity, they are harvested and milled using cold pressing prosses within a few hours in order to restrict exposure of olive oil on different degrading factors. Through the years, the company’s olive oils have been awarded for their quality and their high polyphenolic content.
