This is how the initial idea began to materialize…
As we kept consistently noticing that a series of longstanding habits and products, which constitute our everyday nutritional culture, were totally unknown to a large portion of the public, we came up with the idea of using the knowledge gathered in our tradition, along with our scientific expertise, in order to provide access, for all those interested in following a healthy diet, to this valuable treasures of the Cretan land.
We have been using herbs for many generations here in Crete, both to cure a cold or any stomach upset, to relax before bed or refresh during the day, as well as in cooking to create the unparalleled flavour of Cretan cuisine.
At first, our main concern was how we would be able to secure the collection of adequate quantities without upsetting the balance of nature… Which plants should we choose?
Here, nature itself gave us the answers we were looking for...
We went to our self-owed land, which had remained fertilizer-free and uncultivated for years; that is where nature itself provided us with all the answers we were looking for. All we had to do was to take advantage of the unique micro-climate and focus on the herbs that grew there naturally. We began a systematic and organized organic farming venture.
In addition to their adaptability to the microclimate of Crete, the taste, the vigour in health and their traditional use over the centuries are parameters that we have taken into account for the final selection of the herbs we grow.
Our expertise allows us to organize the production and the manufacturing process in a way that enables us to secure high quality and safety in all stages of the production which are also controlled by us. Through investing in young people’s human capital and cooperating with specialized scientists, we managed to create tofillo.
Tofillo is a family business, tofillo is a collection of organic Cretan herbs, tofillo are natural herbs and greens of the Mediterranean, tofillo is culinary herb mixtures.
