FEREIKOS-HELIX is based in Corinth – Greece and since 2007 deals with the development of open air snail farms in full biological cycle globally.
Fereikos- Helix evaluates investment projects in snail farming and assures the sustainability of the farms. Provides expertise and monitors the snail farms with regular audits by our specialized agronomists. Designs and develops working programs according to the individual needs of each snail farmer and provides contractual purchase of the final product. Fereikos- Helix, except from snail farming and fresh product commerce, created a series of high quality snail products: “Fereikos- Gefsis”.
Fereikos implemented a corporate social responsibility framework aiming at the protection of the environment (developing open air farms in full biological cycle only),strengthening business dexterity, competitiveness and growth of the frontier regions, contributing to the reformation of countryside and decentralisation, while at the same time is including educational activities (seminars, practical exercise - volunteerism, books). In addition, Fereikos provides free briefing to those interested in snail farming via meetings, conducted tours, food tasting and supports the Greek non profit organization that deals with children rights “To hamogelo tou paidiou”.
Finally, the company has created various workplaces in different sectors and has been promoted by Greek and foreign media. In 2009 was rewarded with the “Golden snail” for the growth of snail farming in Greece by the International Institute of Heliciculture, while in 2011 received the International Snail Farming Prize.
