Delights of Crete is a commercial alliance of four historical companies from Crete, that intend to promote Cretan products together, beyond local and national borders.
Our vision is that products involved in Delights of Crete pass on the values of Cretan nutrition and become synonymous with quality Cretan products, whose guiding principle will be respect for tradition and mankind.
Starting with basic goods produced in Crete such as flour, olive oil, juices and milk, Delights of Crete aims to support primary production in Crete and contribute to the openness of local businesses, enabling the consumer to enjoy the delights of Crete.
