“itGReat” is a venture that was born out of “meraci” of three individuals who share the same values regarding health & wellbeing, a deep love for their country and most of all great respect for the history and tradition of their own birth land, the “blessed Cretan Terra”. Abstaining from all impersonal and faceless norms of market logic with set to cater prospective clients and the public through quality principles of service and a high sense of accountability.
Our first step was to use technology to communicate our plan. We created a platform that combines an informational blog, e-shop, & free services, based on the values of the Cretan Mediterranean diet and its unique functional food properties.
Create a series of modern nutritional tools, as well as an opportunity for sound advice through consultants and services accessible on daily basis through the nutritional Blog portal located in www.itgreatchoice.com
Disseminate some of our deep “meraci” & nostalgia for numerous amazing tastes and flavors that have been registered into our memory when children playing in grandma’s kitchen.
Help respect small cultivators who are the only ones to offer forgotten authentic taste experiences we love, through authentic recipes, and provide an opportunity to sample the “old” culinary ways and adopt habits beneficial for health and life.
Supports growers hard efforts and persistence to keep traditional methods and ways of cultivation to help them preserve the quality of their products.
Our goal was to offer this uniqueness together high quality standards, from production to consumption, using as start point our land & finish your doorstep.
