The Minister of Rural Development and Food Mr. Athanasios Tsaftaris, along with scientists, researchers, farmers, cooperatives representatives and entrepreneurs who have won distinctions for successful innovative business activity in food industry today were congratulated on Wednesday, October 16, at the Presidential Palace by the President Mr. Karolos Papoulias.

The Minister for Rural Development Mr. Athanasios Tsaftaris presented our family to the President: Minister: Lastly, Mr President, I would like to present you a whole family, with exemplary innovative business achievements. A family man with his wife, Mr. Kalaboka, and all the children decided to purchase an estate in Plomari and produce the most perfect olive oil that could be produced. This oil has received countless awards. To produce the final product, ground herbs are cultivated so that the volatile substances obtained are slowly absorbed to create a natural flavor. N. Kalaboka: We believe, Mr President, that the future of this place is to uphold our traditions, through knowledge and expertise. My wife and I are both teachers and in our free time we produce the organic cultivation of the "truncated" olive. We want to leave a legacy behind for our children, the future is in their hands and we do not want them to leave our country. President: Congratulations.
