More specifically, the company has developed a 70 grams packaging of Allatini cookies with special co-branding, which is made available to vulnerable groups free of charge by the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation. Deliveries of products begun in July 25 and, to date, 200,000 packagings in total have been delivered to three distribution points of the foundation in Attica. This action will continue in the coming months, with the aim to deliver a total of 500,000 items, by January 2018.

The “Food from the Heart” program is an initiative of the Stelios Haji-Ioannou Philanthropic Foundation, with the goal to offer a free snack and a smile from the heart to people in need, without any racial, religious or social discrimination. The program was launched in Cyprus in 2013 and later expanded to Greece.

In recognition of the harsh economic and social reality that has developed in the country in recent years, ELBISCO takes active part – through a wide network of partners – in the effort to relieve people experiencing food problems. By supporting the work of bodies and structures of the Local Government, as well as of recognized charities, organizations and NGOs, it has offered a significant number of its products over the last two years, to meet the food needs of refugees and migrants in Greece, as well as those of families from socially vulnerable groups.
