  1. AGRICULTURAL COOPERATIVE OF NYONS  |  

    Hello,

    I’m Anne LAURENT, I’m the chief executive officer of the Agricultural Cooperative of Nyons.

    Few years ago (in 2000 or around), we’ve had an exchange with different people from Sitia who were working around the olive. From them, there were George and Maria who were working for the Union of agricultural cooperatives of Sitia.

    We’re a french cooperative which products olive oil and black olives with PDO Nyons.

    This campaign, we’ve a very small production and we’re looking for buying a foreign olive oil with PDO or high quality. It would be a great opportunity to work together.

    Do you have olive oil with PDO label or high quality olive oil to sell in bulk? Can you send to us a sample of your different kind of olive oils ?

    Best regards
