DEVAGRO's JOURNEY

Our story began long before the COVID-19 pandemic when two Greek entrepreneurs, Giannis Fasoulas & Giannis Lyrakis, submitted a license application to cultivate medicinal cannabis. They collaborated with specialists in agriculture and medicinal cannabis and eventually obtained a state-sponsored license. However, they soon realized that building such a company required more resources than they could muster alone. To address this challenge, they formed a small international investor community, which became the foundation of DEVAGRO.

As the team came together, they overcame cultural obstacles and developed a strong bond. Today, we are an international team of professionals and medicinal cannabis experts who support and encourage each other. Our unique blend of individual talents allows DEVAGRO to stand out in the global medicinal cannabis business.

GREENHOUSE CULTIVATION AND
PHARMACEUTICAL FACILITY

The DEVAGRO production facility is situated in Crete, Greece, and covers a vast area of 13,000m². This area has not been used for agriculture in decades, providing exceptional properties free from any fertilizers or similar residues. It is located in the center of a mountain valley, ensuring that there are no unpleasant odors for the Cretan population. The newly constructed unit, built-in 2023, features the latest cultivation technology and adheres to the highest standards to ensure optimal growth for all types of cannabis strains. 

 

We draw water for our irrigation installations directly from the mountains that surround the plantation, ensuring that we use only the purest water sources. Moreover, our processes are powered entirely by solar energy, taking advantage of the more than 300 sunny days per year on Crete. These features allow us to cultivate high-quality medicinal cannabis while minimizing our environmental impact and promoting sustainability.

We have built and equipped a state-of-the-art, GMP-compliant pharmaceutical facility. This way we transform cannabis biomass to cannabiod-based medicinal active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and products of various forms (flowers, tinctures, isolates, ...).
