Fruits and vegetables are washed, cut and placed in clean conditions in our innovative energy-efficient dryers, or in the warmer seasons of the year, they are dried directly in the sun in the traditional way. In the case of vegetable chips, which are very popular, they are mixed with some natural spices.

Short about company of Aregi
The Factory of Aregi is in Aragatsotn community/village, in one of the sunniest regions of Armenia, surrounded by solar power plants, which generates electricity, and with many orchards that makes Aregi a unique food production manufacturer with 0 carbon emission and with “no waste” production processes, thus creating a closed life-circle from growing plants to production with many phases of processing and creating one of a kind healthy products.
And that’s why Aregi means sunny in Armenian, which describe Armenia and Armenians the best.
Aregi creates a new quality standard in the production of dry fruits and vegetables, natural and healthy snacks and sweets and yet there is much more to come
On December 6, the biggest solar plant of Aragatsotn region was opened. The largest complex of solar plants was opened in Aragatsotn community. Solar panels are equipped with artificial intelligence and can change position to capture more solar energy and convert it into electricity.
The introduction of solar plants helps to reduce the cost of production and increase its competitiveness.
Armenia is a country with ancient traditions of making dried fruits. The traditions of making dried fruits in Armenia dated back to millennia BC. In the 5th century BC the Greek historian Herodotus mentioned “…dried fruits soaked in the sun…” that Armenian merchants brought along with wine and other products.
Xenophon of Athens described that Armenians were used to keep dried fruits for the winter as follows: “The villages of Armenia are full of raisins” (400 BC “Anabasis”). During archaeological excavations, apricot pits were discovered, which are about 6000 years old.
The existence of high and low geographical landscapes of Armenia, regardless of the country’s small size, allows to have early and late ripening products in different regions, which in turn has prepared the ground for people living in different regions to search and find the best ways to preserve food, the primary of which is the drying method.
Aregi came to remind the best old traditions of healthy food preservation and combine it with modern innovative means so that the unsurpassed historical realities continue to dictate to the whole world the best experienced ways of healthy lifestyle.
And this is just the beginning…
