List of products by manufacturer Creta Carob

Creta Carob was established in 2006 and started its operations in 2011. It is a family company that mainly focuses on the production of different biological products made from the Carob Pods. Creta Carob is located on the island of Crete in a little village called Argyroupoli. During the production process they combine ancient procedures with new technologies and the final products correspond to the regulations of the E.U. and have received the bio qualification in Greece and in the E.U. In Crete, the carob trees thrive in difficult soils and like the arid conditions that are naturally free of fungus and pests. Thus, the use of chemical sprays are not necessary here. The trees grow 15m in 50 years and do not bear fruit for the first 15 years. However, once fruiting, each tree will yield one ton of beans in one harvest. Carob pods are harvested in the middle of September. The growing carob pods look like green broad beans but they turn to a dark glossy brown as they age. Each pod can contain up to 15 seeds. Since carob has a long history in human consumption (harkens back to 4 BC), it cannot claim to be a newly discovered food, but rather a re-discovered food. As the founder of Creta Carob, Elias Manousakas states "It is the lost treasure of Crete''
