Our Facilities

η ιστορια του ροδιου

In our privately owned area in the Municipal District of Agios Athanasios in Drama, in 2012 we built the first Greek vertically integrated model pomegranate processing unit, where we installed modern selection and pre-processing machinery, peeling equipment that uses the de-seeding method which provides us with the “jewels” of the fruit intact pomegranate seed packages in containers of 200-2000 grams,  a juicing unit with clear juice technology, which means that our juice is produced from the pomegranate seeds only, using high tech machinery to remove the external and internal peel of the fruit, refrigeration and storage spaces with high hygiene and safety standards, supplying to Greek and global market with fresh pomegranates, pomegranate seeds, a line of pomegranate products, and ASOP’s Greek 100% natural pomegranate juice!



Environment

προστασία περιβάλλοντος

We continuously invest in research, the utilisation of technological developments, and the development of new high added value products. In cooperation with the Centre for Research & Technology Hellas, and using pioneering methods, we utilise the solid waste from pomegranates for the production of fuel, briquettes, and environmentally friendly beauty products, leading the way in the overall utilisation of farm product waste.

Here at the ASOP family, this is how we comprehend and put into practice Green development, producing environmentally friendly products, reducing pollution, substituting imports with modern product exports, and contributing to real and sustainable growth.

ASOP-Greek Pomegranate received the GOLD PRIZE at the top Greek export awards event,

the Greek Exports Awards.

The Greek Export Awards are co-organised by the Association of Diplomatic Employees for Economic & Trade Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ethos Media, aiming at highlighting-rewarding the people, ideas, and collaborations of the top exporting businesses in Greece.

ASOP-Greek Pomegranate received the GOLD PRIZE in the TOP BRANDED EXPORT PRODUCT category.
