In the masterful 17th-century Cretan romance “Erotokritos”, “skoutari” is the shield that protects the besotted youth when he fights for his beloved Aretousa. Our olive oil is the shield that protects your health. From olives of the Koroneiki variety, exclusively from our family’s olive groves on the fertile island of Crete, we produce “Skoutari”. An exceptional, organic, extra virgin olive oil, produced in small batches, one of the few that carry a certified health claim on its label (according to Commission Regulation (EU) No 432/2012).
Our story begins in 2000, when two young people, Anargyros and Maria, inspired by memories from our childhoods, decided to cultivate the family olive groves. Guided by Grandfather Michalis, and by our fathers, Manolis and Giorgos, we set sail on our new journey – accompanied by our entire family…Over the years, there has been continuous research in order to produce olive oil that is distinct not just for its flavor, but also for its beneficial properties. This quest, that began with our love for nature, eventually became an obsession: to offer the best olive oil to our children. “We want our children to grow up consuming pure ingredients, exceptional raw materials generously provided by nature, so that they will have good health and clarity of mind.”
