Welcome to my personal web space, a place I have wanted to introduce you to for some time now!
And when I say 'for some time,' I mean it: It’s been over a year now, while I formed the idea for this company in my mind and slowly saw it take shape and become a reality.
But let's take things from the beginning.
I have been immersing myself in nutrition-related issues for years now. Initially, I wanted to see and feel results in my own body, and as time passed I realised how closely our well-being is linked to what we consume.
One thing's for sure: We are what we eat. And how well our bodies function depends on the fuel we give them.
To meet the demands of my profession and day-to-day life, I started early on to seek the best sources of energy.
That's how I got into organic food.
At first, I depended on the organic products I could find at my neighborhood super market, and later I graduated to the regional organic street market. I found a wealth of food I hadn't known existed (akai, maca, and even zea), and of course I found the foods I was familiar with, but only in their organic or unprocessed forms.
I was shocked. And don’t tell me you aren't when you see strawberries the size of potatoes on the shelves of your local super market. Or cherries so large and perfectly shaped that they look like they were imported from another planet.
So it started to dawn on my that something was very wrong with the image I had of food, and I began my research into the subject.
I read the lists of ingredients on packaging carefully and looked up what all those E(x)s and preservatives actually meant. And I also remember how often I frustrated at not being able to find sugar-free marmalade, breakfast cereal that didn't have the hidden or added sugars that supposedly make them tastier, but actually just make them sweeter.
To make a long story short, my frustration strengthened my resolve to be more conscientious about consuming organic products.
At first I saw a lot of imported organic products, but as time passed I started to see Greek products making their appearance on the shelves.
And that's when the idea came to me: I could contact small and medium-sized producers throughout the country, try their products and choose those of the highest quality, so that, together with these producers and with the right image, we could promote the wealth hidden in Greek soil. And that's what I did. I travelled around a lot, I tried a lot of honey, cherries and marmalades, and I decided on which stood out the most in each category.
What you'll find on the site right now is the first line of core products I wanted to sell, and I'm already preparing the next line!
With a lot of joy, creativity and love for something completely different from what I've done up until now, I'm realising a vision with the products I want to have in my own kitchen and in my life.
I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do and that they become part of your day-to-day lives too.
