Eliva was created by people born in Chania, Crete, who love their homeland dearly and have a long family tradition in the production of olive oil. These are people who grew up watching the previous generations carefully attending to the olive trees, since their fruit would feed their children and help them reach a ripe old age without any health problems, just like they did. Using the production of the Fragiadaki family estate as its basis, Eliva gets its supplies of excellent quality Extra Virgin Cretan Olive Oil also from other, carefully selected, responsible and reliable producers.
Eliva addresses consumers who have realized that nutrition is crucial for their quality of life and they select their food based on its authenticity, actual nutritional value and their trust in the producers. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Eliva is the same oil we use in our homes.
If you visit the small villages of Chania, the people will offer you this same olive oil, from their own production, with freshly baked country-style bread and olives, under the Cretan sun, next to the amazing beaches with the emerald waters, nearby the impressive gorges and mountains. Unfortunately, in order to enjoy everything Crete has to offer, you must travel all the way here. But thanks to Eliva, the Extra Virgin Cretan Olive Oil comes to your door, wherever you may be!
Eliva is a small company, based on our twenty years of experience and local tradition, and not on industrial production. It does however implement all the latest quality controls, and our products have received all certifications that guarantee their high quality and nutritional safety. Eliva's headquarters and processing plant are in Chania. Therefore, very little time passes after the fruit has ripened, its harvest, the production of the Olive oil and its packaging. Our modern method of delivery ensures the transport of our products to most parts of Europe, within 2-3 days after you place your order. And this is how the best Olive Oil in Crete reaches your table delicious and fresh!
