The company was founded in 2010 on the island of Naxos and was the first company in Cyclades in this sector.
Our main goal is the creation of organically certified high quality products, which will meet the requirements of the most challenging consumers both in Greece and abroad.
Being pioneers in our field, we combine tradition with modern technology to produce unique top quality products. The unique climate and soil, the clean environment that characterizes the island of Naxos and the mountains of northern Greece combined with our certified organic practices, guarantee top quality herbs, extremely rich in flavor and essential oils.
The fact that Organic Islands has vertically integrated production processes, makes us capable of having complete control and responsibility for the quality of our products, from the initial planting of the herbs in our fields, until their final packaged form that consumers receive in their hands. At present we cultivate 100,000 square meters of privately owned fields with 16 species of herbs and citrus fruits, whereas for the processing and packaging our products we own two modern fully equipped units.
