Concentrated juices, known in Cyprus as "squashes", are a very good way to enjoy a refreshing drink in the summer, or whenever thirsty. Kean's range of squashes/cordials with traditional flavors, bring delightful varieties of sodas to every home, and non alcoholic drink alternatives for parties, gatherings or professional spaces, like offices, restaurants and bars.
Takis Christodoulou, a pioneer young chemist with knowledge in fruit processing, founded in 1949 the Cyprus Soft Drinks Company "KEAN". Kean's main purpose was to use the indigenous aromatic herbs of the Cypriot countryside, and the ripe varieties of Cypriot citrus, in order to extract juices, essential oils and other natural ingredients, that would be used for drinks, perfumes and cosmetics. The Company continuously perfected its extraction processes by studying and understanding how the fruits should be handled, during growth, crop and oil extraction stages. The Company put correct procedures in place to avoid bruising and heating the fruit, and to preserve and store naturally the juices, after they were concentrated. This is how high standards were created and the "secret recipe" of KEAN soft drinks. The flavorful fruity taste of the final product is based on the authentic great taste and quality of the juice, with all its natural characteristic of texture, aroma, color, vitamins and minerals maintained. The company soon started producing squashes and juices, as well as the Pepsi for Cyprus, and established a factory in Limassol's seafront in 1956. During the struggling period after the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974, when most of the fruit plantations of the north-east side were lost together with the 37% of the island, Christodoulou, with his survival instinct, identified in the Near and Far East a new demand for products not exclusively based on the previous raw materials, and the company that also lost a substantial part of its fleet, refrigerators and property, managed to survive and recover with exports. Today KEAN with a portfolio of 76 top quality products distributed in the latest packaging with modern design, exports to the European Union market and beyond. The 60 years of production experience, the commitment to quality and the successful marketing, earned the brand a strong customer loyalty, which is built on trust, credibility and consistency.
