BIOKIP S.A. is the company of the two brothers Pavlos and Charalambos Apostolidis. Pavlos Apostolidis is an agronomist and organic farmer who produces in his orchards kiwi fruits and oranges as well as vegetables in his greenhouses. In order to meet his needs for packing facilities and the needs of a big number of other organic farmers along the western coast of Greece and on the Peloponnese, the Apostolidis brothers run a modern pack house near Arta. The pack house, in which mostly citrus fruits and kiwis are packed, is certified by Bio Hellas (GR-BIO-03) according to the European Union’s Organic Regulation 834/2007. Furthermore, it meets the ISO and GlobalGAP standards. As a licensed member organisation of the BIOCYCLIC NETWORK, the pack house is also certified according to the biocyclic and Naturland standards. The modern pack house equipment offers the possibility to pre-pack at source both citrus fruits and kiwis in almost every type of packaging. The small distance to both, the most important organic production centres of Greece and the port of Igoumenitsa, allows the Apostolidis brothers to play a central and strategic role within the network.
