Description

Organic Islands is an innovative and continuously expanding company that specializes in the production and processing of organic aromatic and medicinal plants and herbs. We have established a strong commercial presence at numerous purchasing points both in Greece and abroad. Our company was founded in 2010 on the island of Naxos, making us the pioneers in this industry within the Cyclades region. As industry pioneers, we seamlessly blend tradition with modern technology to create exceptional, high-quality products. The unique climate and fertile soil, combined with the pristine environment of Naxos Island and the mountains of northern Greece, along with our certified organic practices, ensure the production of herbs that are unparalleled in flavor and rich in essential oils. We follow the best practices for harvesting, processing, and packaging our herbs. The herbs are meticulously hand-harvested at their peak of maturity. Leaves and blossoms are carefully dried on the same day under controlled conditions to preserve their valuable bioactive substances. The next step involves advanced machinery to collect the relevant parts of each plant, followed by thorough cleaning to prepare the herbs for the final product. Stringent quality controls are implemented before the herbs undergo packaging and storage, ensuring optimal protection under controlled conditions.

TOUR AND TASTING

During the guided tour of our company premises, visitors will be provided with comprehensive knowledge about the entire process of herb processing, starting from the moment they are harvested from the fields until their final packaging. Additionally, they will gain insights into various methods of drying herbs, including alternative approaches, and understand the advantages and disadvantages associated with each technique. Furthermore, visitors will learn about the procedures involved in cleaning, storing, and packaging the herbs, as well as the relevant regulations and certifications governing them. As a bonus, visitors will have the opportunity to inquire about organic herbs and even sample a beverage from our wide range of products. Feel free to ask any questions and indulge in a beverage chosen from our company’s offerings.
