"For the past 30 years in Sakellaropoulos organic farms, we have absolutely believed in the health protective character of our specialised olive products. This is now proven, both by official measurements and scientific methods, and by the participation of our products in clinical trials under the auspices of universities in Greece and abroad," the owner of the company George Sakellaropoulos told AMNA.
"This opens new horizons for the organic olive products that we produce exclusively in our organic farms, which now have recognised benefits to human health, contributing to the improvement of the quality of life. The term bio-functional foods becomes the most appropriate to describe the very high quality products of Sakellaropoulos organic farms, produced with specific methods and under special conditions, providing them with a unique global passport to the global market," he added
