The company started its activity in 2012 aiming to produce tasty handmade products such as pastes, pâtés and sauces with sweet red Florina pepper and 100% fruit spreads with concentrated grape juice and with no added sugar or pectin.

The product range includes:
Sweet red pepper spreads.
The pastes, pâtés and sauces have as their main ingredient the sweet red pepper of Florina, in north – west Greece. They are prepared during the autumn months (September and October), since during that period the peppers ripe in the region. The peppers are charcoal grilled, peeled and seeded by hand and are let to simmer for hours in pots together with the rest of the ingredients and extra virgin olive oil. The ingredient density reaches about 70% and 80% making the spreads really special and bringing out their taste and unique fragrance.
100% fruit spreads with no added sugar.
The difference of these fruit spreads from the ordinary marmalade is that in the spreads Greek concentrated grape juice is used instead of sugar, customarily used in jams. The sugar content does not exceed 52% compared to the 64% in other ordinary jams. This does not mean less sweetness in taste, on the contrary, the high fruit content and the not use of pectin make the fruit spreads unique. In order to produce 100g of final product the company uses 150g of fresh fruit. The spreads are made during the summer months with fresh fruits from the region.
