“Kaloagritissa” is a cooperative that has been created in 2009 by the women of the village Kalos Agros in Drama. The concept of the cooperative had been existed for a long time, waiting for the right time and the necessary matureness for this difficult step. The women of the village collected all the traditional recipes from their ancestors, who were refugees from the Eastern Thrace and from Minor Asia. Having as a goal to make known our nutritional culture, our cooperative started producing safe, healthy and nutritious food products.
Our first goal is the revival of our local products that come from our fertile region. Using our traditional recipes with pure and natural products, we will introduce you our delicious handmade pasta, frumenty (trachanas), sweets and some excellent handmade liqueurs.
Our next goal is to make our cooperative powerfull and create new working positions, helping the women’s unemployment rate to decrease, giving an additional income to as many families as possible. Also, an important amount of our production will come from organic products, and we will try hard for this.
Our main prospective is to show to the people a nutrition of quality that gives health and long living. All the women cooperatives help this goal.
Wanting to keep the tradition, we use everything we have learned by our mothers trying to teach the same things to the next generation. Respecting the human and the nature, we combine the glorious past with the present and the future.
