Production  Technology

The company has developed a state of the art production technology for the production of liquified or microfine
powders, based on low temperature processing. In this way, the final product keeps its high nutritional value,
necessary for an improved survival, development and growth of the larva.

R&D

We are continuously running an R&D program for new product development. Through this research, new innovative
products are created to comply with the current demands of the aquaculture industry.
All these new products are first tested in the laboratory and then re-tested in selected marine hatcheries before
they become commercially available.

Quality  Control

Each production batch carries a batch number for any future reference. Each batch is tested microbiologically
& nutritionally before it becomes commercially available to the customers.

The company has established a self-control system for the quality of all products, in cooperation with the certified
laboratory of A. TSAKALIDIS LTD. For this reason, the company orders a detailed nutritional and microbiological analysis of each product to confirm its technical characteristics.

Quality Certified: TUV NORD ISO 22000, GLOBAL G.A.P.
