HELLENIC PROTEIN SA group was established in 1995 aiming at the creation of high quality Greek milk protein products as well as cheeses of Protected Denomination of Origin (P.D.O.), capable of dealing with harsh and continuous international competition.
This effort had two basic targets: to create modern production plants of high technology in the area of food ingredients and also – through its cheese production plant – to create a unique research and development center for new products.
The group evolved in a short period of time and within six years had completed the construction of 4 factories, with a total investement of €30 million. The realization of these goals was achieved by utilizing 1,000 tonnes of whey per day for the production of protein products of a high biological and added value.
The plants of the group are geographically distributed, in order to cover all the needs of whey process in Greece. EPIRUS PROTEIN SA is located in Ioannina, CENTRAL PROTEIN and AGRAFA in Karditsa, MAKEDONIAN PROTEIN in Kilkis and ACHAIAN PROTEIN in Kalavrita.
