THE JOURNEY BEGINS...
Our love for Mother Earth and the gratitude we feel for the gifts it offers us gave us the impetus to make the decision in October 2016 to create our own cooperative that will aim at the production, packaging, standardization and promotion of products. in the domestic market but also abroad. The headquarters of our cooperative will be the area of Melivoia. Somewhere at the foot of the imposing Kissavos are collected our products which are apples, cherries and chestnuts.
Products tested and certified as they cover all the required health needs with such high quality that it will cover even the most demanding palates. We want as an agricultural cooperative to write our own history in the field of agricultural products and to pass on our knowledge to the younger.
