KAPLANIS FRUITS is a family business activated in the production, standardization, packaging and marketing of agricultural products. Georgios Kaplanis (father) started the company back in 1948 and then Nikolaos Kaplanis (son) took control, who continued and expanded the business.
The company is located in Psari, Prefecture of Ilia, in the region of Manolada where strawberry plants are being grown for many years.
KAPLANIS FRUITS, in cooperation with local producers and specialized staff, collects and packs top quality strawberries, potatoes and watermelons of certified seeds and distributes them on the international market (Russia, France, Romania, Poland, Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia etc.) and on the Greek market.
Our company has several stremmas (1 stremma=1000 square metres) of agricultural land, mainly for strawberry production. Most of our strawberries come from the field crops of our company, while we also get a small amount from local growers, always according to the standards set by our company.
After picking, strawberries are placed in transparent plastic cups which are put in cardboards or wooden boards, depending on the customer’s preference. Then, the strawberries are transferred in accordance with the hygiene and food safety rules at our packing centre where they are placed on pallets and are immediately pre-cooled in the state-of-the-art cooling chambers of our company.
Our experience is the best guarantee for high quality products, good service and cooperation.
KAPLANIS FRUITS boasts privately owned building facilities with a surrounding area of 5,000 square meters. It disposes 2 state-of-the-art cooling chambers, with a 100 ton capacity for the proper pre-cooling of strawberries. The company also owns 400,000 square meters of outdoor production area as well as 220,000 square meters of greenhouses, where strawberries are grown.
