REZOS BRANDS S.A. is a food oriented Greek SME, founded in 1983 in Patras, Western Greece. The founders with extensive experience in sales, distribution & logistics, took the challenge of delivering quality, reliability and passion and categorized REZOS BRANDS S.A.as one of the leading forces in the highly competitive market in which we operate. Through time, Rezos Brands achieved a steady workforce growth rate, as a result of the gradual establishment of our company in the Greek market.

NIG Nahrungs-Ingenieurtechnik GmbH was established in March 1991 as engineering and research enterprise for the processing of fruit and vegetables as well as of other vegetable raw materials. The founders of the company were employees of the former research institute for fruit and vegetable processing Magdeburg and have long term experiences in development of processing technologies, engineering, product development, analytics and quality assurance.

Organic 3S is a company involved in the trade of packaged organic farming products, selected in accordance to the strictest of criteria, produced in Greece and abroad, and of specialized raw materials for the organic product industry, while constantly investing in know-how development.

“What exactly is the food we eat? Are organic products the solution? Why are these products that expensive? What shall we give our children to eat?” To provide answers in these questions, Andreas, an agriculturist with extensive experience in the organic food industry, decided to deepen his research on the quality of organic food products versus the respective conventional products, assessing on the same time the real relationship between quality and price.
