PHILOSOPHY & VISION

ABEA – “Anatoli” S.A., as it used to be more commonly known, was founded in 1889 in Chania, Crete and is the oldest olive oil processing plant in Greece. Today it is active in many areas of activity:

  • Bottling and trading of Cretan extra virgin olive oil, olive oil and olive pomace oil
  • Production and marketing of olive oil soap
  • Refining of olive oil and olive pomace oil
  • Processing of olive oil-cake for the production of crude olive pomace oil and pomace.

Our philosophy:  respect to the earth and its people.

Our goal: a production aligned with sound agricultural practices, which respect the environment and ensure sustainable development.

Our condition: a close cooperation with selected local producers who apply integrated management model to their crops.

Our vision: to become the brand of choice for those seeking top quality, a pure product and who wish to help the renowned Cretan diet to spread worldwide. A diet of high nutritional value based on the Cretan extra virgin olive oil. An olive oil whose incomparable flavor and aroma are inherent traits of the soil, the high sunshine and dry climate of the island of Crete, and of course the love of the Cretan people for the olives and the tree on which they are born.
