Our principles to manage the Land has been always in connection with the sustainable practices developed in years of experience as well as trained people to make sure we get the best from the Land and as we proved indeed with the implementation back in year 2000, of our organic plantations from where we are supplying our customers in Europe and the US with very successful quality products.
