Hippocrates Farm is company’s privately-owned farm located in Meteora, Greece and used for the organic cultivation of superfoods. Precision agriculture techniques are employed in order to develop, monitoring and analyze the nutritional value of superfoods.

Innovative biomolecular analysis methods are implemented to determine the full maturation time where the superfood will have the maximum composition of bioenergetic compounds that characterize its high nutritional value.

Agriculture

Food Technology

Optimized superfoods are used to develop innovative functional food products implementing advanced methods, like osmosis; a non-thermal dehydration method, edible coating: a novel preservation method, encapsulation technology; to protect the activity of bioactive compounds.

Using novel extraction methods the bioactive compounds can be used separately to further enrich the nutritional value of food products.
Ongoing research targets company’s ultimate goal to create innovative novel functional foods for personalized nutrition.
