Note

In Ierapetra, the southernmost point of Europe, a region with a long tradition in horticulture, the “Anatoli” Agricultural Association was founded back in 2001. The association has been operating since 2009 as a recognized producer group. Currently, it has 200 members and is comprised of experienced certified growers of over 1250 hectares of greenhouse crops. The areas of our activities include fostering, organizing and monitoring of crops and preparation and marketing of fresh vegetables of high quality and nutritional value.

Our greenhouses are located in the broader Ierapetra area, the warmest in Europe, with beneficial climatic characteristics. During winter, the minimum temperatures are not less than 10°C, with daily sunshine. As a direct consequence, products are maturing in a natural way in the most ideal conditions.

For production, we use modern and technologically advanced lightweight greenhouse facilities where pant growth is performed in a completely controlled environment. The output is checked on a daily basis with respect to the use of pesticides and fertilization through the cooperation between producers and agriculturists. This is performed in strict compliance with the rules of proper use and safety. Additionally, the phytosanitary control is performed using IPM biological methods.

The quality and the safety of products is also secured with frequent residue analysis of active substances in accredited laboratories and with the traceability of products at all production stages (from of each individual plot to the final packaging and for each batch separately). This achieves optimized quality and quantity planning for the whole year.

Our list of products includes tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and eggplants with the possibility of producing all varieties of these species.

The budget of the annual production for the coming years is:
