GERANI Ltd has been producing and bottling soft drinks for three generations now. It started off as a small family business which grew to a big company. In 1928 Sofoklis Anagnostakis, who had emigrated to America, returned to his village, Gerani of Kydonia. There, at his back yard, he created a homemade carbonated drinks’ production laboratory, using improvisational, manually operated machines. Distribution was at the time done with a donkey and “Gerani” refreshments were very popular. The second world war put the business at a pause but, post war, Sofoklis’ son Manolis started it off again.
