This summer, my holiday destination was Greece and one of its largest islands, Crete. Of course when thinking of Crete, the postcard image instantly comes to mind with high mountains, valleys and gorges and crystal-clear water bays. Crete has also a very rich cultural legacy thanks to the successive civilisations that have ruled the island. Plenty to do and discover.
But if you like food and cooking, there is something that might definitely interest you! The Cretan cuisine and food specialties: tasty olive oil, countless goat and sheep’s cheeses, crispy baklavas and thyme honey… among others. Those are must-have in your suitcase back home!
Local products and steel
When it comes to honey and olive oil, if you consider buying some, you will find plenty of local producers along the routes or in villages selling their own products. A guarantee of good quality and purity as for the oil, the olives used are from one sole plantation.
But the main point here is that they are offered for sale not only in glass or plastic but also in steel packaging! Between plastic, glass and steel, it should not take you long to decide which container to choose!
Here are some reasons why you should always prefer steel packaging for bringing regional products and other culinary delights from your travel destination.
· First, . If travelling back home by plane, steel is the most adequate packaging to keep your products safe. Just thinking of how roughly our poor luggage can be handled at the airport, only steel packaging can avoid the content to be spread inside your bag and end up all over your clothes!
· Also, . Products are protected, freshness is guaranted and nutritional quality is preserved. What a better way to safely bring back home these unique flavours.
· Finally,. Indeed, steel is the easiest packaging material to recycle thanks to its magnetic property and in fact . While protecting your holidays’ souvenirs using steel packaging, you help preserving the environment. If you can hit two targets with one bullet, why not go for it?
