Cranberry Beans are medium beans with a characteristic brown with red stripes color, and a full dense taste. These delightful beans are a great source of protein, vitamins, iron and minerals, they are low in fat and sodium and cholesterol-free. Cranberry beans known as "mparmpounia" in Greek can be cooked in the pot or in the oven with onions, olive oil, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. 3Alfa Beans are a tradition for Greek households, as the Company was the first to introduce high quality packaged beans in the Greek Market. Try these beans as a main dish, or in combination with rice, tomato sauce and olives!
Company 3Alfa was established in 1968 with the purpose to process and package pulses and rice. At the time of its establishment, grocery stores were beginning to introduce self-service aisles, and the need for packaged products rose rapidly. The Company soon established its name on the market and, with continuous operation planning and commitment to quality products, became the most popular brand in the local market. Today the Company holds its leader position by far from the other brands and with self-owned facilities that measure 14,000 sq. meters (150,000 sq. feet), 3Alfa treasures the same values that brought the company to the top: high quality products derived by the respect to the consumer and the support to the producer. The Company applies quality systems based on ISO 9001:2008 standards, and safety according to ISO 22000:2005 (HACCP) and BRC standards (International Standards for food safety).
