THE COMPANY

In 1955, Konstantinos Toskoudis, the founder of Suntos SA, entered into the raisin processing, standardization and exporting business by building a privately-owned raisin factory in the city of Heraklion, Crete.

In 1981, a state-of-the-art privately-owned unit was built in the industrial area, on a plot of land of 15,000 sq.m. There, raisins are processed, standardized and packaged.

Its state-of-the-art machinery, with production capability of up to 30 tonnes/8 hrs, guarantees consistent product quality.

There is a complete production line consisting of laundry, sulphiting room, furnace, sorting screens, stemming machines, laser machines, automatic weighing systems, formulator machines and state-of-the-art electronic machines that control impurities such as metal objects, etc..

Strict continuous quality controls during production by experienced staff ensure the high quality of the final product.

Our customers throughout Europe, many of whom are large factories such as chocolate factories, bread factories, etc. have endorsed us as their partners and suppliers on account of the high quality and hygienic conditions of our factory.

Apart from the export sector, the company is also active in the domestic Greek market, with impressively increasing annual growth rates.

Raisins are now among the healthiest and most natural products, without preservatives or dyes, which should be made widely known to consumers considering its relatively cheap cost over other similar products.

Following closely the steps and the instructions of its late founder, Konstantinos Toskoudis, the raisins factory and the hotel complexes operate under the supervision of a new generation of successors of the Toskoudis family, who are working tirelessly and with a high sense of duty to grow their company.
