In 2009 and for the first time, in Greece, a significant effort for communication –cooperation among aromatic and medicinal plant producers from all over Greece was fulfilled. The idea of this cooperation arised out of the initiative of FARM BIOMA, which the particular producers cooperated with. In 2012, in Zappio House in Athens, the mutual presentation of their producers was made in the context of FOODEX Exhibition.
There were set the initial goals. These concern the cooperation of the producers on trade, biological agriculture and protection of local varieties issues. Two years after the first contact (in Zappio), the producers decided to attribute an official character to this cooperation by means of forming the association of GREEKS PRODUCERS OF AROMATIC AND MEDICINAL PLANTS.
