The production of softdrinks begun in 1928, when Sophocles (grandpa) Anagnostakis came back from the United States of America where he had emigrated and worked (among other jobs) as a pastry chef.
He was initially producing soft drinks for his coffe shop customers located in his village “Gerani” near Chania, Crete. Those years, soft drinks were not something common and were mostly known as medication for indigestion or some sort of luxury.
In the early stages “production” involved pouring the juice, sugar and water in bottles, one by one, with the help of a coffee pot. Then with the use of a pump the bottle was filled with carbonated water. That pump was operated by hand and later on with the help of the worker’s leg.
