We have played an important role in the development of
the industry, from improved farming practices to advanced processing
owns the biggest vineyard in Europe, 140 hectars, and a big fig
orchard. Both crops are grown organicly.
Plant runs with most recent
technology, producing famous aromatic Turkish Sultana Raisins, premium
Smyrna Figs, as well as "Pastes" and "Diced
Pieces" of these dried fruits. Fumigation (for
non organics), grading, washing and packing are
the major production stages. Inspections by in-plant
raw, phisical and microbiology labs are done repeatedly
at every step to comply with Company specs. We pack
under "Lion", "Southern Beauty",
and "Orchard Blossom"
brands. All our
products are "Kosher".
Turkey is where the growing of grapes
and figs started, before written history. Raisins are '"quick energy"
as the carbohydrates in this fruit are fructos,
dextrose type, requiring no fermentation during
digestion. Fig is the "perfect food" with very
rich contents of calcium, potassium, magnesium, fiber and
carbohydrates. Both are extremely healthy for children for strong
teeth, and grown-ups, primarily to
regulate rithmic heart beat. Both have no fat, cholesterol,
sodium. USDA's Food
Guide Pyramid recommends the complex
carbohydrates in raisins and dried figs, as basic health diets.
Raisins and Dried Figs require no
special storage. Ideal tempearature is 9 C (45 F).
