The WORLD of OLIVING
Creta Farms, a Greek company founded in 1970 in Crete, is today the largest meat product producer in Greece being the leader of the deli meats market. Having two large production facilities and high-quality livestock farms, it has become the biggest pork producer in the country.
The company’s competitive advantage comes from the innovation it has brought into the food sector, selecting prime-quality meat and replacing animal fat with extra virgin olive oil in its natural form, thus ensuring higher nutritional value and exceptional, rich taste.
Since 2001, Creta Farms has registered 17 patents producing innovation, high dietary value products with the “En Elladi” brand in Greece and the “Oliving” brand in international markets. Creta Farms aims to lead in the global trend towards healthy nutrition, producing innovative products that reinforce the profile of Greek businesses worldwide.
“Oliving” is a new way of living which thanks to the goodness of olive oil, is placed at the heart of everyday nutrition. Olive oil, the Greek treasure, the “liquid gold” as Homer used to call it, the main ingredient of Mediterranean diet – worldwide acclaimed for its rich taste and high nutritional value – is today the basis of our Internationally patented method to create one-of-a-kind, world class quality food products with delicious gourmet flavor & healthier profile under low total fat and saturated fat levels.
Combining innovation with tradition, technology with the values of a balanced diet and the wealth of our land, the world of “Oliving” will become the step to a tasty, healthier lifestyle.
Innovation is an integral part of the company’s DNA. In 2015, Creta Farms launched the first fresh meat protein snack globally. Significantly contributing to the rapid growth of Creta Farms in the international arena, this unique protein snack and its patented production process is a celebration of the value of simplicity of “Oliving” helping the company to become from a charcuterie to a food company.
Working with passion and devotion leads Creta Farms along a path of development that has taken it beyond the Greek borders. Annual turnover exceeds EUR 100 million with an EBITDA margin above 10%, while its efforts are supported by more than 700 employees.
