The sun and salty sea play a key role in the growing process of agricultural products, with unique beneficial effects on crops. And of course, raw materials are fresh and rich in nutrients

The Ancient Greeks discovered the therapeutic properties of greens and herbs. 

Many Greek philosophers recommended a healthy and balanced diet to heal diseases and pain.

Greeks used herbs both fresh and dried, as whole leaves or crushed/flaked, as they still do today, they  use stems and not only leaves from many herbs for cooking
