nATURAL AND ΒΙΟ GREEK PRODUCTS
The SPARTATHLON Company was established in 2016 with the introduction of SSB GROUR, an International group of companies in the ownership structure to European exports of Greek agricultural land products such as citrus and virgin olive oil. Our company has one of the oldest packaging in Greece in Poulakida Argolid, near the fertile land of ancient Mycenae. The founder was Athanasios Giannakos who started in the 1960s to deal with the juicing of citrus, and in the 1970s launched in the market the Greek juice ” HRA ”, of which afterwards the packing was being conducted by Andreas Papaioannou.
The main export consignees of Spartathlon are Europe’s Balkan countries, some of which are Italy, Romania and Serbia.
Within 20 acres of land there are facilities located within 2,000 square meters that are equipped with the most modern packaging machinery in Greece. The packaging process begins from here although it is not the only concern for the excellent collection of products, the choice for supplying citrus determined by Spartathlon as experienced agronomists choose fields that are free from plant fertilizers and other harmful to the human body is of a greater concern as well. This procedure is compatible with the rules of the European standards for packaging and Export. The journey that is undertaken by Spartathlon products is fully tested as a qualified workforce collects the citrus and places them in sanitized containers which are then transferred to small refrigerated-truck adjusting with temperatures in accordance with the packaging facility to be packed and disembark the same day for the markets. In the packaging facility their arrival is checked by agronomists who again check the quality of products and immediately place them in the screening chamber where experienced specialists classify products according to their quality. In the next stage the goods enter the wash cycle and a cleaning process is placed forth followed by disinfection and drying. The latter process includes the separation of citrus by size and quality by a special electronic apparatus and then the placement in green cardboard box packaging.
