FROM THE FIELD TO YOUR TABLE
Everything starts with the fertile Greek soil. That’s why we place so much value on the relationship of trust and collaboration we foster with Greek farmers. To achieve this, we promote “Contract Farming”, a collaborative program bringing together more than 1,000 farmers who share the same values, ideals and high standards as we do. Guided by our key principles of quality and safety, and with the help of our Integrated Crop Management system, we carry out quality controls on our vegetables at every stage, from production to harvest. While at the same time, with Precision Agriculture, we are able to utilize every piece of field data in real time! With our expertise and love of the land combined, we can confidently and consistently deliver you the very best in terms of quality, safety, nourishment and flavor.
We work alongside our farmers at every stage of production, from sowing to harvest. By examining the water table and microclimate of each region, we select areas with the best climate and the most fertile fields, to sow the seed varieties most suitable to each location. This ensures that our seeds are sowed at the right time, depth and distance to achieve maximum plantability, as well as the homogenous development of our crops!
To grow properly, vegetables need special care. We use the appropriate means to water the crops uniformly and at the right time, while also checking the quality of the water in order to ensure that the vegetables served on your table are always fresh and at the height of their nutritional value!
We are present at every field and at every moment, doing whatever needs to be done for the protection of our vegetables. We take all necessary precautions to prevent any infestation or disease, and we carry out more than 300 organoleptic and microbiological checks on a daily basis to ensure that all traces of insecticide used for the protection of the plants, is completely eliminated by the time they reach harvesting.
QUALITY, SAFETY, INNOVATION
The timing of the harvest is crucial, especially for vegetables, and has to be carried out with care because every second counts! Our vegetables are always picked when their nutritional content, vitamins, plant proteins, carbohydrates and dietary fiber are all at their peak. The state-of-the-art equipment we use during harvesting ensures that our vegetables retain their optimal, pristine condition. This is how we can guarantee that every single one of our vegetables gets to your plate with the highest nutritional content possible!
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
Vegetables start to decrease in nutritional content and 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 seal in all their freshness, flavor, and vitamins within 2 hours. This is accomplished using our instant freezing method, a gentle and natural process that takes place after the vegetables have been carefully selected, rigorously washed and momentarily blanched, without the addition of any preservatives. This is how we achieve maximum preservation of our vegetables’ nutrients, allowing you to enjoy them all year-round, as fresh and nutritional as at the moment of harvest!
