Sea Buckthorn, a wonder food
Sea buckthorn (Hippophae):
Sea buckthorn is loaded with 190 different bioactive nutrients. Amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, omega fatty acids and many more. The fruit is an absolute power house of nutrients!
At Hippocrates Farm, we cultivate, process and market, the best sea buckthorn, as a pleasant everyday food, so that people can benefit the most out of it. We started doing so, through the osmotic low temperature process, an innovative dehydration method that keeps all the goodness of the fresh fruit.
To accomplish our goals, we teamed up with NIG GmbH, a worldwide leading company in sea buckthorn R&D that provides scientific and engineering knowledge, guarantying top quality and maximum functionality in all product development stages.
To reach the markets, we are based on Rezos Brands, a leading company in the super foods industry in Greece, that is distributing nationwide major global brands and local own brands, to top food retailers and luxury hotel chains (Delhaize/Ahold, Metro Group, Starwoods, Marriot etc.).
Forming this team, we intend to improve our vertical business model, from cultivation, to harvesting, processing and marketing functional and tasty sea buckthorn products. In cooperation with Rezos Brands, we have launched Meteora Osmotic Sea Buckthorn, Osmotic Sea Buckthorn Juice and Dark chocolate covered osmotic sea buckthorn.
In cooperation with Rezos Brands, we have launched Osmotic Sea Buckthorn, Osmotic Sea Buckthorn Juice and chocolate covered osmotic sea buckthorn.
We are now focusing on the next big thing for us: a new series of innovative organic products based on dark chocolate, with osmotic sea buckthorn and oat based cereal with sea buckthorn and matcha tea extract.
It is all about making functional, exciting and delicious!
Our effort to create natural, functional food products, based on Meteora sea buckthorn, led our Hippocrates farm project to the 1st place in Europe in functional food, within the framework of the European program ‘’Katana’’.
Hippocrates Farm was rated as the most innovative agrifood project from all over the European continent and it is about the development of innovative functional snacks, derived from organic, Greek Sea Buckthorn of exceptional quality.
We have already started to apply the sea buckthorn paradigm to other beneficial plants such as the Greek mountain tea, another Greek superfood with scientifically proven favorable effects for the human body and mind.
A new crop of organic Greek mountain tea has been already planted, while the Rezos Brands R&D department is researching new innovative uses and applications that can bring its benefits to the European market.
And our intention in Hippocrates Farm is to do so, with as many superfoods as possible!
