In 2016 we established our new food processing facility in Pella, an agricultural area near Thessaloniki, with the most modern stainless steel equipment and experienced high caliber personnel. We chose to settle in Pella because we are well-acquainted with the tastes of this part of Greece and because the agricultural products of this region are of superior quality. The fruits and vegetables we use are harvested when they reach natural maturity, when their aroma and taste are at their peak. By combining the art of traditional home-making techniques with the use of advanced modern technological equipment, we preserve most of the "freshness" and nutrients of fresh fruit and vegetable in the final product, while meeting stringent hygiene requirements.

Spoon sweet, the story
The spoon sweet dates back to ancient times when people had to find a solution for the fruit had leftover, and somehow they had to preserve it. Crops goods had not to be thrown away. As a result, they started to use syrup to preserve the goods. The housewives boiled the fruit and turned it into sweets and jams.
Of course, the term "spoon sweet" came from the way these sweets are served, as they are served on a small plate with a teaspoon, with which the visitor eats the sweet.
