Special Vocational Training Center and VLACHAKIS EGGS VLACHAKIS EGGS back SEEPA Since September 2006 VLACHAKIS EGGS has been in partnership with SEEPA, the Special Vocational Training Center; a recognized charitable organization promoting training, employment opportunities and social integration to young people with intellectual disabilities over 25 years now. We assigned to students of SEEPA the design of the packaging of our products. These unique works of art were released in 2006 as creative labels decorating our “6 Junior EXTRA FRESH Eggs ” packaging. Through these works of art the students of SEEPA are able to express their standpoint and feelings, feel proud and share with the public. VLACHAKIS EGGS has been standing by every action of the Special Vocational Training Center, offering at the same time the consumers the opportunity to support its work; we allocate part of our revenues for building the first autonomous housing development for the intellectually disabled SEEPA broke the ground for in February 2006.
