Messinia Union - Traditional Products
The shop "mu" is the "child" of the Agricultural Cooperative "Union of Messinia" and its name derives from the English translation of the distinctive title (Messinia Union).
The store is located in the centre of Kalamata, at 10 Iatropoulou Street, in the privately-owned premises of the Cooperative, where the Administrative Services, the Farmers' Service Center and the Peloponnese Beekeeping Center are hosted by the Union of Messinia.
It was created to promote the products of the Cooperative but also to make them accessible to the Messinians, the visitors of the city and everywhere, since they carry out shipments, in and out of Greece, of numerous cooperative and local products. Giving space to producers who find it difficult to position themselves in big chain stores but also bring products from Cooperatives across the country to Messinia, they promote the idea that a standardized, certified Cooperative product can be an extrovert flagship for the rural economy.
The main image on the shelves, of course, Messinia with PDO Kalamata Olive Oil, PDO Kalamata Olives, Black Raisins, Dried Figs, Honey from local producers, local varieties of bottled wine, peanut butter, by local cooperatives, local producers' rice, all standardized and certified. At highly competitive and affordable prices for both those who wish to enjoy their palate and those who want to make a different, gastronomic gift.
On the shelves, you will find cooperative products such as: Liqueur, Dacry, Loukoumia, Traditional "Ypovrychio", Toothpaste, Deodorants, Foam baths, Mastic-based face masks all from Chios Mastic Producers Union, Rhodium Juice from the Agricultural Association of Fruits and Vegetables of Agios Athanasios Drama, PDO Santorini tomato, PDO Fava Santorini, caper, caper leaf, "koufeto" (traditional wedding sweet) Santorini, sour tomato cream from Santorini, PDO apple cider of the Zagorin Agricultural Cooperative (Zagorin) among others.
Taking into account the needs of the demand of visitors, you will also find items such as:
Cosmetics based on olive oil
Herbal care products
Organic food and toiletries
Accessories and jewellery from Messinian households
Baby Care Items
Types of gifts
In October 2017, two types of moisturizing creams for women based on Messinia Organic Olive Oil were made.
Their main concern is the selection of quality standardized and certified products that, in combination with competitive prices, bring consumers together with local producers and cooperatives across Greece and gradually develop a different culture towards local and cooperative products and their uses.
