Amari, Traditional Cretan Cheeses

At the foothills of the sacred and highest mountain in CretePsiloritis stretches the verdant Amari valley
surrounded by villages, endless olive groves, rare nature richness and 1642 aboriginal, nature-found kinds of flora. Goats and sheep are browsed on wild herbs and grass, drink water from spring and rest under apple and cherry trees in order, the next morning, to offer their milk. The very same milk you wish your children to drink, to make cheese with or get its top cream and spread it on your bread. The cheese dairy factory of the company Manoukarakis SA is located exactly in the valley of Amari. Our philosophy: with respect to tradition, with the knowledge of the art of cheese production, with the insistence on the excellent quality of the final product, with insistence on keeping the correct treatment, with patience in the maturing times, with a desire for constant improvement and development, but above all with love for man and interest in his diet, we create the cheese we want to have at our table, offer our relatives, feed our children and enjoy its benefits.
