Genetic Material


The creation of a State of the Art Sericulture Unit that produces top quality Silk products and By-products not only requires modern building installations and related equipment but also the right selection of Genetic Material that is compatible with the local terrain and climatic conditions as well as the quality requirements of the production.

Hellenic Silk Company will perform a study of the piece of land to be cultivated (soil, water characteristics, microclimate conditions vs area climatic conditions etc) and will suggest the mulberry varieties to be planted as well as the compatible type of Silkworm eggs to be incubated.

To this end, the Company maintains a Mulberry Plant Nursery and delivers the 1yr old bare-root saplings ready for plantation. Moreover, the Company in cooperation with International Research Centers, imports certified Silkworm eggs of different varieties for further distribution.
