Kumilio


The Lámbrou family
created KumÍlio
in 2015

Cóstas Lámbrou is the family’s liaison with KÍmi – otherwise called “balcony of the Aegean” – as he was born and bred there; a fertile region which, endowed by history with a particular cultural imprint, has been a source of inspiration for the family. This strong bond along with their love for the fgs, the most precious local product, has led their decision to create KumÍlio so as to convey their perception of nature, their land and its community’s tradition. Nowadays, they are taking care of about 500 fg trees at Káddi, a Kími village, where they also keep a small sorting and processing unit.

KumÍlio offers a range of products each requiring special handling according to the raw fruit’s appropriate stage in the cycle of maturity. By so doing, we manage to take the best possible advantage of our produce also respecting the riches the fgtree has yet to offer. Together with our collaborators we share tasks and domains so that everyone’s expertise and experience may be fully applied on all felds. As a result, in our fnal product we combine the aptest raw material processed by the aptest collaborators at exactly the aptest time.

“Cropping time starts on the first half of August and ends early September. On each visit to the site we only pick up the over-mature figs.” – Kumilio Fig
