Description

Organic Islands is a constantly-growing, innovative company in the field of producing and processing organic aromatic and medicinal plants and herbs. We have a commercial presence at dozens of purchase points in Greece and abroad. The company was founded in 2010 on the island of Naxos and was the first company in this sector in the Cyclades.
Being pioneers in our field, we combine tradition with modern technology to produce unique, top-quality products. The special climate and soil, the clean environment that characterizes the island of Naxos and the mountains of northern Greece, in combination with our certified organic practices, guarantee top quality herbs that are extremely rich in flavor and essential oils.
Harvesting, processing, and packaging are carried out according to best practices. The herbs are harvested exclusively by hand at their moment of maturation. Leaves and blossoms are dried on the same day under conditions that protect their valuable bioactive substances.
What follows is the processing stage, during which the relevant parts of each plant are collected using modern machinery and then given a thorough cleaning to produce the final product. After the final quality controls, packaging and storage take place under conditions controlled to ensure their optimal protection.

TOUR DESCRIPTION AND TASTING
During their tour of the company premises, visitors will learn about the processing of herbs from the time they come from the field up to their final packaging. They will also learn about alternative ways of drying herbs and the pros and cons of each method, as well as about the way they are cleaned, stored, and packaged, and finally about issues relating to their regulation and certification.
Visitors will be able to ask questions about organic herbs and try a beverage selected from our company’s product offerings.
