AND A FAMOUS
THE REVIVAL OF AN HISTORICAL CO-OPERATIVE
In 1933 almost all the farmers in the area united to form the Sitian Union of Agricultural Co-operatives. It importantly improved their ability to trade and export on the Greek and international markets. Its amazing quality brought lots of international prestigious awards every year.
Today’s rebirth of the co-operative under the “Sitia Olive Oil – LASITIA” name ensures that Sitian extra virgin olive oil has all such benefits, while recommitting to the traditional farming values that put it at the top of world opinion.
The oil is gold at low price
Since I was a small child, I remember myself amongst the olive trees. My life, my parents’ and grandparents’ lives, have all been lived out in the olive groves. Joys and sorrows, for more than 150 years. But we always made good olive oil and that's what counts
Olive oil is life, but it is also a profitable business. Now we are able to send again a truly good olive oil to the ends of the world, to Japan, Australia and America
We bottle our extra virgin olive oil in our 3,000 m2 facilities at the heart of the Sitian olive grove. Our three lines produce up to 90 tons in a single day, which works out at 15,000 tons per season, making us the area’s highest producer.
Oil and soil quality control testing is carried out in our on-site laboratory, while nitrogen headspace storage tanks ensure no loss in quality prior to bottling.
It is important to have
the best olive oil,
but it is great to share it
