Our History

Our family since 1925 is inextricably linked to pig farming, this tradition has continuously reached the 5th generation. We consider the revival of the Greek Black Pig to be our moral obligation because we walked with this pig from 1925 to 1998.
We feel grateful for the valuable scientific support and research of the professors: Argyriou Anagnosti (EKETA), Ambrosiadis Ioanni (AUTh), Tzika Eleni (AUTh), Ioannina Elias (AUTh.) And the late Alexopoulos Konstantinos (AUTh.), Without their help we would not have the current results in the special olive breeding.
The main purpose of our company is the production of Greek alternative and quality meat. With respect to the consumer, we raise our animals in their natural environment with plant foods, observing the strict rules set by nature.
