Traditional & All-Natural Greek Dairy Products…
“Menikio Agricultural Cooperative” is a unique vertically integrated dairy company, with deep respect towards tradition & nature. Every step of the production process “from farm to shelf” is entirely under their supervision. From the feed crop & the livestock breeding; to the daily milk collection & the final production. This is how they are able to offer dairy products of high nutritional value, exceptional quality & unmatched taste for the whole family to enjoy. The feed storage, livestock & production units are located in the valley of Prosotsani, under the shadow of Mt Menikio. The location has been deliberately chosen, not only because of its rich & fertile soil; but also because of the constant breeze blowing down from a nearby gorge, creating a natural ventilation system. This is why the air is always fresh around the livestock unit, even though it houses a few thousands of sheep & goats. The biggest advantage of the unit’s location though is that it is surrounded by 25 acres of its own organic-grown grass field, where the sheep & goats are free to roam & graze.
The goat milk is interwoven with Greece. According to mythology, Zeus was fed with the milk of a goat called “Amalthea”, the horn of which symbolizes abundance & wealth. It is superior in terms of nutrition to cow milk since it contains less lactose, more vitamin A & calcium, is rich in vitamins B1, B3 & K, its minerals (magnesium, potassium & phosphorus) have higher bioavailability & does not create allergies! Bursting with active goodness, “BIO Katsikisio Kefir” is a refreshing milk drink, essential to boost your metabolism, digestion & immune system. It contains the beneficial kefir bacteria combined with the benefits of goat’s milk, giving superior health benefits when consumed regularly.
