The Golden Oriole is in reality a migratory bird; its scientific name is oriolus and its Latin root is auriolus, meaning of golden color. And in fact, the male bird is yellow with black feathers and a red beak. In Greece, its habit of eating figs wherever it could find them awarded it the nickname Sykofagos (figeater). However, Sykofagos is also the name given to the venture created by a group of friends from the wider area of Kymi, Euboea which focuses on creating innovative fig products.
Euboea is the second largest island in Greece and the sixth largest in the Mediterranean. The pines and plane trees forests with their springs and running water, the magical sand beaches with countless little coves and the blue-green waters of the Aegean, the mountainous groups and fertile plains, the tidal phenomenon in the Euripus strait and the gorges, complete the beautiful picture of Euboea.
Apart from being a beautiful land, Euboea is also a fertile land with a variety of excellent products. Kymi is in the lead with its famous figs, but also its citrus trees and other fruit. Mushrooms, excellent beer, wine, tsipouro, jams, honey and seeds are some of the countless products produced in the area, which are now ranked highly.
