Traceability, quality, sustainability and fair trade
All our products are supplied by well established producers or manufacturers in Greece. We never purchase from 'middle men' or distributors, so we can guarantee that we know exactly where the product we receive has come from.
Our Suppliers are all certified with the highest health and quality standards of food production. At the very minimum, all our suppliers have ISO certification - ISO 22000:2005 - an International Standard for Food Safety and Hygiene Management that covers the requirements of HACCP. The ISO system is mandatory according to both European and Greek legislation, which establishes the general rules of food hygiene, as well as the mandatory observance of these rules.It is applied to the production process of a specific food and covers all stages, from the receipt of raw materials to the final use of the products by consumers.
