FROM THE FIELD TO YOUR TABLE
Everything starts with the fertile Greek soil. That’s why we value the trusting relationships and collaborations we have been building with Greek farmers. To achieve that, we promote “Contract Farming”, a collaborative program bringing together more than 1,000 farmers who share the same values, ideals and the same high standards as we do. Our key principles are quality and safety. Therefore, with the help of our Integrated Farming system, we carry out quality controls on our vegetables at every stage, from production to harvest. And with Precision Agriculture, we are able to utilize every piece of field data at any time! Both our expertise and our love of the land make us confident that we can consistently deliver you the very best in terms of quality, safety, nourishment and flavor.
We work together with farmers at every stage of production, from sowing to harvest. We select the areas with the best climate and the most fertile fields. We carefully examine the water table and microclimate so that we can sow the seed varieties most suitable for each location, and to ensure that our seeds have been sowed at the right time, depth and distance. In this manner, we can achieve maximum plantability, as well as the homogenous development of our crops!
Vegetables need special care to grow properly. We use the right tools to water the crops uniformly, at the right time, and we also check the quality of the water to ensure that everything served on your table is always fresh and full of vitamins!
We are present at every field, doing what we need to do in order to protect our crops. We take the appropriate measures to prevent any infestation or other disease, and we carry out more than 300 organoleptic and microbiological checks on a daily basis to ensure that all insecticide residue has been excreted.
QUALITY, SAFETY, INNOVATION
The timing of the harvest is crucial and that’s why it is completed with care – because every second counts! Our vegetables are always picked when their nutritional content, vitamins, plant proteins, carbohydrates and dietary fiber are at their peak. Our state-of-the-art equipment used during harvesting ensures that our vegetables retain their optimal, pristine condition. When filling your plate, you can rest assured that every vegetable has the highest possible nutritional content!
Vegetables start losing their nutritional content and their vitamins as soon as they are harvested. That’s why we transport them to our state-of-the-art facilities immediately after they are picked, and within 2 hours we seal in all their freshness, flavor, and vitamins using our instant freezing method! It’s a gentle and natural process that takes place after the vegetables have been carefully selected, rigorously washed and momentarily blanched without adding any preservatives. This is how we manage to preserve the nutritiousness of the vegetables, allowing you to enjoy their freshness and nutritional content year-round, as if they had just been picked!
WE ALWAYS PRIORITIZE
Our primary concern is to offer you vegetables that are nourishing, safe, and of great quality. With that in mind we, together with the Laboratory of Food Chemistry and Biochemistry at the School of Agriculture of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, have conducted a comparative study on the nutritional content of both fresh and frozen vegetables. The study scientifically and reliably confirms the benefits of frozen vegetables. In addition, our traceability system allows us to track the source of every vegetable, during its cultivation, production, and transportation. Therefore, we can confidently offer you wholesome, peak-fresh vegetables year-round, without any traces of pesticides, fertilizers, or preservatives. Our vegetables are as fresh as the moment of harvest!
