ELBISCO as part of its actions to provide humanitarian aid to refugees and migrants living in Greece, has collaborated with the Non Profit Foundation “Desmos” in order to cover food needs of the Refugee Camp at Ritsona.
More specifically, the company has offered more than 20.000 packages of biscuits and crackers Allatini. The products were provided through “Desmos” to the Austrian NGO “Echo100Plus”, one of the organizations that are officially operating in the Ritsona accommodation facility, assisting in the work of the Hellenic Air Force.

New investment by ELBISCO. The company is investing €20 million in a new production line for rusks
ELBISCO, implementing a consistent strategy of extroversion and competitiveness, is undertaking an investment of €20 million, which will complete a 3-year investment plan amounting to €30 million. The investment concerns the creation of a new rusk production line that will come into operation in early 2018.
The operation of the new production line will create new growth prospects for ELBISCO, by increasing its rusk production capacity by 40%. The additional product quantities will be channelled to the European export market, by exploiting cooperation opportunities with major companies and retail chains.
The business benefits and prospects that will stem from this investment will allow ELBISCO to maintain its leading position in the domestic rusk market, strengthen its growth and profitability through exports and secure jobs on a long-term basis.
The new production line will be constructed in Halkida by expanding the existing ELBISCO facilities, since the company has already exhausted the statutory building capacity at its facilities in Pikermi, where the current rusk production line is located.
Employees working on rusk production will continue their work at the new unit, when it is completed. The company provide daily transfer to and from the plant in Halkida. ELBISCO has also developed a special Voluntary Retirement programme with favourable financial terms, in order to support any employees who may choose not to continue working at the new production line.
The Managing Director of ELBISCO, Mr Dimosthenis Ramantanis, stated: “In recent years, while operating against a backdrop of adverse economic conditions, ELBISCO has achieved a positive performance while also ensuring its future growth through major investments. Today, we continue and expand our investment programme in order to create new opportunities in the local and – mainly – the European market. The development of the new rusk production line will allow us to take a leap of extroversion, which will create added value for the company, its employees and the Greek economy.”

Such schemes are important not only because they safeguard jobs, but also because they lay the foundations for increased levels of employment, production and exports, all so vitally necessary to the Greek economy.
The country’s economic model is changing. From a model based on borrowing, consumption and public spending, to a model based on exports, investment, competitiveness and the private sector. The results are already there to be seen.”
The Managing Director of ELBISCO, Mr Dimosthenis Ramantanis, spoke of the company’s development strategy for the coming years, emphasizing that:
“Each of the investments we implement is a step into the future. A step towards safeguarding the sound and dynamic future expansion of our company. We shall continue along our path; with the support of our shareholders, with contemporary structures and through the dedicated work of our personnel, we shall continue to innovate. We shall continue to create new products combining advances in food science and technology with the dietary habits and wishes of our customers.
We shall continue to seek out new markets, to contribute to the national economy and the growth of our country. We shall continue to operate with respect for, and a great sense of responsibility to, Greek families and Greek society as a whole.”

The 1st chocolate-flavoured Petit-beurre comes from Allatini and, thanks to you, was named Product of the Year.
Chocolate-flavoured Allatini Petit-beurre was named Product of the Year 2014 in the snacks category at the Product of the Year event that each year showcases the most innovative mass market products in Greece.
Using top quality raw materials - like the Allatini All-Purpose Flour - and adding a little "twist" to the recipe, in March 2012 Allatini created the first chocolate-flavoured petit-beurre, and completely changed consumers' taste experience from a simple biscuit.
This is a product that encompasses all the classic values of the Allatini brand, quality, purity and tradition, while at the same time meeting consumers' needs for imaginative, alternative flavours. The idea, "all the flavour of chocolate in one plain and light biscuit" was our inspiration for innovation. So by giving a new twist to the well-known and favourite recipe, Allatini was preferred and rewarded by Greek consumers.
Messrs Nikos Assimakopoulos, Group Brand Manager, and Nikos Foliotis, Senior Brand Manager, receive the award for Product of the Year.

Our childhood memories are filled with the aroma of Easter or other festive cookies, when mummy and grandma used to bake cookies filling the entire with with their wonderful aroma! So, what could be better than being able to pick those little treats up at the super-market, and indeed as tasty as the ones we would make at home!.
