Kumílio was founded in 2015 by the Lambrou family. Our goal is to make the Kimi fig known, fresh or sun-dried: a fruit intensively present in the long line of greek nutrition, one that combines sweet taste with rare nutritional value. Nowadays, we are taking care of about 500 fig trees at Kaddi, a Kimi village, where they also keep a small unit of sorting and processing figs.
We make the best of our produce but at the same time try to build firm alliances with other devoted local producers. Competition is not within our frame of mind; we basically aim at supporting such producers and the entire community at large.
Apart from the whole sun-dried Kimi figs, we try out and suggest new forms and applications of the fig, such as in:
• Fig bars
• Fig Syrup
• Fig Spoon Sweet
We have followed cultivating and processing techniques based on traditional methods developed in Kimi over the centuries. Given our respect for this specific tradition, we keep on looking for ways to further boost the value of the fig and its by-products.
