Hellas Farms Brings the Flavors of Greece to America’s Favorite Nut
Pistachios have become one of America’s favorite nuts and they’re about to get even better with Hellas Farms’ introduction of Greek Pistachios. The all-natural, handpicked nuts are sun-dried and slowly roasted for a distinctive new flavor. The company combines traditional, Old World harvesting, preparing and roasting practices with state-of-the-art packaging technology that ensures the nuts’ freshness. This unique marriage of “old” and “new” results in a sophisticated taste and premium quality that sets Hellas Farms Greek Pistachios apart from other pistachios currently sold in the U.S.
“Just like Americans have embraced Greek yogurt, we know that they will love our pistachios and choose them over other pistachios,” said Nikos Papageorgiou, Managing Partner of Hellas Farms. “Because of how we harvest and package them, they taste as fresh as if they were picked that very day in Greece. There are simply no other pistachios like them on the market.”
Like nearly all Greek pistachios, Hellas Farms pistachios are grown on farms situated only a few miles from the Mediterranean Sea. This particular microclimate, along with the soil composition, creates a uniquely sweet and nutty flavor. The pistachios are harvested and prepared using traditional, non-mechanical methods, after which they are sun dried for four to five days, seasoned with sea salt for 24 hours and then slowly roasted. Hellas Farms uses specially-designed packaging to capture and ensure their natural taste and freshness.
A healthy alternative to high-calorie snacks, Hellas Farms Greek Pistachios are a good source of fiber, protein, magnesium, potassium, iron and monounsaturated fat. They contain no trans-fat or cholesterol and are naturally gluten-free, with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
Hellas Farms’ Greek Pistachios are sold in 1.75-ounce bags and retail approximately $2.99. They can be purchased online on Amazon.com. They can also be found in more than 100 retail outlets throughout the Metro New York area. For more information, please visit www.hellasfarmsusa.com.
