Nikos is one of the kindest persons I have ever met. He offered us some bread with his delicious olives and olive oil and explained everything about his products. I think it was one of the most memorable experiences of our trip. Thank you Nikos!

Had a great experience at this shop! We decided to check it out after seeing some reviews, and definitely wasn't disappointed. The owner greeted us and gave us some bread and olives to try with different Olive oils. There are also different types and size bottles, at very good prices. He showed is how the olives are processed and it was great to see the care and pride he has over the olive products!

What a great place to see local olive oil making at its best. Also well located for many local herbs and spices. We took fresh oregano and some of the concentrated spice oils.

We only found this place as a result of it being well reviewed on Tripadvisor. It is easy to miss as it is outside the town.However I would strongly advise a visit. We dropped in looking for some gift souvenirs to take back home with us. The owner (who's name sadly escapes me) couldn't have been more helpful and took time to explain how the olive oils, raki, soap and other products are produced. This is a co-op type set up and although the quality is really high, the prices were better than we've seen anywhere else. Definitely
drop in if you are in the area.

I happened upon the Kurtes factory by chance and was welcomed by the staff member there. She gave me samples of their products to try before I purchased from their factory shop.

Was nice to see people having passion for what they do and very friendly atmosphere. Great variety of local products - essential oils, honey, raki, olive oil, herbs and jams. Our 7 month old kiddo loved the place and father-daughter family that owned the place.

I have visited many times the factory of Doulgerakis family. It is located in Zaros, a village not very far from the city of Heraklion. Every time i visit the place they are happy and hospitable. Mr. Nikos and his daughter Elina can happily show you how they produce all these great food products from Cretan nature. I suggest to call them at winter time in case you want visit the factory as they always working around there!!
