Anthir A.B.E.E., located outside of the city of Agrinion in Aetoloakarnania, Western Greece, is experimenting, producing, and processing organic Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs), in the form of dry herbs, extracts and essential oils.
In Greece the local aromatic and medicinal plants have been used and were subject of trade from antiquity. Dioskouridis (1 A.D.) was the most famous pharmacognosist - pharmacologist of antiquity.
The soil and climatic conditions of our country favor the growing of aromatic and medicinal plants giving excellent quality products. The greek flora is very rich in different species and includes an important number of rare plants that flourish only in Greece.
Understanding the value of that heritage we designed an integrated vertical production and processing unit for Aromatic and Medicinal Plants with purpose, to get involved to all fields of these plants: production, processing of dry herbs, extracts, essential oils, pharmaceuticals and research.
We conduct industrial research, with subject the study on the properties of the greek plants and herbs, and the use of them in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry.
