Most people think of Greece for its sandy beaches, warm climate, and long summers. Although this might be largely true, Greece also has a prosperous food industry sector owing to Greece’s legacy of agriculture and food processing.
According to an analysis published by PWC in June 2018, the Greek food industry represents 29% of the country’s GDP, corresponding to a gross €15.1bn revenue per annum. According to PWC, there are some 15,700 Greek companies in that sector, with 106 off them being well established and highly competitive and extroverted.
Owing to its prominent food sector, Greece has significant know-how in the engineering, design, and construction of bulk material handling projects and equipment manufacturing. It is not surprising that major foodtech multinationals such as Buhler AG of Switzerland and others are represented here for decades.
At the same time, a number of Greek bulk handling engineering & construction firms and consultancies are based in Athens operating in Greece and abroad. Most of them have adopted an outward outlook, exporting equipment and services and securing contracts all over the region and especially in South-East Europe and the Balkans, and Middle, East, and North Africa.
Operating under the standards of the EU, these specialized firms deliver the highest level services and first-class equipment. Maintaining quality as any other European manufacturer, Greek bulk handling tech firms offer innovative products and services at substantially lower rates compared with their northern EU counterparts, partially due to the restructuring of the Greek economy in the years of the financial crisis as well as because of the reduced freight costs involved towards these neighboring regions.
The prospect of obtaining cost-efficient European services and equipment is appealing. Buying expensive products cheaply is certainly attractive, especially amid the challenges many modern businesses are facing under the adverse circumstances of our times.
