WHO WE ARE
We are a large group of people who are devoted to the same mission: to bring you the safest, tastiest and most nutritious vegetables.
Both in Greece and abroad, we operate in the sale of frozen vegetables and dough, as well as fresh salads, under the brand names, Barba Stathis and Chryssi Zymi.
Guided by the trinity of nourishment, flavor and ease of use, each and every day we seek to bring you innovative products of unrivaled quality and maximum safety standards.
At present, we own 5 factories for the production of vegetables and dough, and have 11,000 points of sale. We also operate abroad, with exports to 5 continents and 25 countries!
Our vision is to offer safe, quality products that add true value to the lives of our customers. At the same time, guided by the principles of sustainable development and inspired by the wisdom of traditional Greek food, we aim to shape nutritional standards and promote a healthy lifestyle.
For over half a century now, we’ve stayed true to the very same values we began with. To offer authentically Greek products that stand out due to their unrivaled quality, safety, and innovation, with respect to society and nature. These principles are the cornerstone of our every decision and remain unchanged in the passing of time; they guide and inspire us every single day.
Optimal qualityNature never ceases to offer us the very best. In return, we invest in our human capital and ensure that our vegetables are always of the highest quality thanks to our Integrated Crop Management system and the state-of-the-art equipment used in our facilities. This way, we can guarantee that our vegetables retain all of their freshness and nutritional value, right up until the moment they are enjoyed.
Maximum safetyWe work with selected farmers and adhere to fully monitored and documented procedures on the fields, such as the Integrated Crop Management system and Precision Agriculture, that allow us to have full control over every stage of production. At the same time, we carry out more than 300 checks on a daily basis to ensure that the products that reach our customers are of the quality and safety synonymous to the Barba Stathis brand.
InnovationThanks to the expertise of our people, we have developed a reliable and integrated Research & Development operation that is primarily aimed at developing innovative products.
Respectful to society & to natureWe operate with respect to nature, society, and the abundant Greek land with all it has to offer. We follow a business model based on sustainable development and a circular economy and we implement environmentally friendly procedures in a consistent and responsible manner. Moreover, we continuously invest in solutions that help us reduce our environmental footprint and use natural resources responsibly.
Authentically GreekEver since we began operating, we have continuously supported the Greek economy, as well as Greek entrepreneurship. Through our Contract Farming program, which was the first of its kind ever to be implemented in Greece, we have partnered with over 1,000 Greek farmers who cultivate more than 3.000 hectares of arable Greek land. In doing so, we remain faithful to our vision of offering our customers the tastiest, safest, and most nutritious vegetables, while at the same time preserving our tradition in flavor and attuning it to the needs of contemporary life.
Our company’s roots go back more than 50 years, and our story continues. Inspired by the Greek culinary tradition, our goal has remained the same since the beginning: to offer our customers high quality vegetables empowering each and every one of them to easily prepare delicious, healthy and nutritious meals every day.
