SitiaOnline.com is owned and operated by
EVOO, LTD. Our mission is to represent the Union of Agricultural Cooperatives of Sitia in the United States. We believe that the Cooperatives' farmer-members
have a passion to produce the world's best Extra Virgin Olive Oils. Although
they are not yet as famous as some of the Italian brands here, once discovered,
they won't disappoint.
The Union, which was established in
1933, today totals 43 cooperatives and over 8,700 farmer-members. This
represents almost all of the farming families in the province of Sitia, on the
island of Crete in Greece. Its focal points are in the fields of olive oil and
Let us focus in the area of olive oil.
The Union collects the produce of the area and brings it to the Greek and
international market either in bulk or as a standardized product. The excellent
quality of the olive oil is proved by its good position in the difficult market
of Italy. Their facilities provide storage for 5,000 tons of olive oil and
a bottling capacity of 10,000 kg per day.
It is worth noting that Greece produces
almost exclusively premium quality olive oil ― 85-90% of its olive oil
production is extra virgin, whereas none of the other olive oil producing
countries (Italy, Spain, France, Portugal just to name a few) exceed 50-60%.
The intention of our website is to
educate people about the healthiness of the Mediterranean Diet and promote
SITIA's award winning line of Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oils in the United
States. Some of the products are available nationally, however the distribution
network is still limited. We invite you to order through us online and
experience the taste of the most awarded Extra Virgin Olive Oils in the world.
