The Stathopoulos Family works in this sector from 1968 until the present. The father, Vasileios Stathopoulos, owned a groundnut decorticator in Sekoula in the region of ILia. For about twenty years he supplied the markets of Athens and Thessalonica with groundnuts.

Further on, in 1981, a handcraft establishment was created with a retail shop which had all the range of nuts, in downtown Athens, at 63A, Evripidou Street. In 1985, the son, Rigas Stathopoulos, takes on the family business at the age of twenty three and brings new ideas along with a different vision of management. As years went by the company’s dynamic team grew bigger and bigger and supplied an ever growing number of shops specialized in the sale of nuts.

In 1988, the company is transferred to Peristeri in a space of 600 sq. meters where its activities were broadened. The retail shop remained at the same address and was entirely taken in charge by Rigas Stathopoulos’s sister, Zacharoula Stathopoulou, along with her husband. The handcraft establishment, apart from distributing nuts in 3-5 kgs packages, ideal for the supply of shops, which resale them unpacked, introduced small packages such as 100-180 gr. sachets and 250 gr. vacuum packages. This particular choice of packages, for the smaller as for the bigger ones, contributes to the easer programming and constitutes the greatest defense of the clients. At the same time, the diversity of the products increased as new collaborations developped with diverse companies in the whole of Greece, and shops could be supplied with new products such as sugar products, chocolate treats, fruit in syrup etc.

The large distribution network with privately-owned vehicles covers the supply needs of the whole of Attica daily, and of the whole of Greece in collaboration with diverse agencies. The company’s goal is that the final product be the result of the best possible processing and of excellent quality by applying the tracking and quality control systems on the raw materials as much as on the packaging materials according to EU instructions.

Words like quality, trust and client satisfaction are the fundamental axes of our philosophy as well as the main ingredients of our success through the demands of contemporary market.

Nutritive value of nuts PDF Print E-mail

We all know that nuts are a healthy, nutritive and tasty nutritional choice and that they should not be missing from our daily diet, not only as an occasional treat and on holidays, but every day with our lunch or as a snack.
A fair number of studies have been conducted these past years concerning their nutritional composition and value, which prove that nuts are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, natural fibres and micronutrients. This is why specialists urge people to consume nuts on a daily basis, moderately and preferably raw and unsalted. The 16 years study of Harvard University on 84,000 women aged 35-60 is noteworthy. According to it, the persons consuming nuts five or more times a week are 27% less prone on presenting type 2 diabetes.
So, in reference to almonds for example these are a rich source of calcium and phytosterols, while walnuts are rich in vitamin E (equally to olive oil) and antioxidant substances such as selenium and manganese. The pine nut is rich in metals and micronutrients as are seeds, and constitute an energy food for the cardiovascular system. Pistachios are an equally significant source of monounsaturated fats and proteins as well as hazel-nuts. Finally, all dried fruit are naturally ripened and withhold a great part of their vitamins, assisting thus our digestive tract and cardiovascular system.
It is obvious that nuts contribute to the right function of the human organism with a unique way. This is why we should all show our preference to them and systematically introduce them into our daily diet.
