Known for its ravishing scenery, Santorini also provides an amazing culinary experience. Due to the unique terroir, the island produces specialties that can only be found here. The anhydrous climate, the volcanic soil, the cooling winds and the dense humid nights, combined with the unique varieties cultivated in the island, contribute to the creation of delicacies nobody could resist.

This is what makes products from Santorini so special and are certified as Protected Destination of Origin (PDO).

What are PDO products?

PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) is a certification used by the EU to identify, promote and protect a name of a quality agricultural product or food.

PDO identifies a product:

(a) originating in a specific place, region or a country

(b) whose quality or characteristics are essentially or exclusively due to a particular geographical environment with its inherent natural and human factors

(c) the production steps of which all take place in the defined geographical area.


PDO products are reputable for their excellence and uniqueness, sealed with the quality stamps of the European Union.  Highly traceable, unique and continuously monitored for their quality, PDO products are truly the crown jewels of the European production.
