Nilaeus - Agricultural Cooperative for Standardized Products,
An innovative cooperative at Chora of Messinia. This may be the first case in Europe, in which a cultivation, funded by members of the cooperative and without subsidies, has been certified according to the ISO 14001 environmental standards. It has also received certification according to AGRO 2 and the EMAS standard certification on March 13, 2009. At the same time, sales in bulk are gradually being replaced by sales of standardized products. Their activation in the great fire of 2007 prevented it from spreading to the valley of Gargaliani.
