In 1980, Andreas Petikas establishes a company which traded mainly frozen meat from Argentina and Brazil. With the European integration of Greece, he becomes the pioneer in fresh meat import from the community. The company’s main office and shops were located in the central food market of Thessaloniki, named Modiano. In 1990, following the trends and perceiving the market’s needs for further services, he invests in the purchase of a field in the airport district and the construction of the main building of processing and distribution, complying with all EU regulations. In 1995 and 1998, he proceeds to successive expansions, achieving ISO and HACCP certification, which have been implemented ever since.
The aim of the company is the meat supplying of butcher’s enterprises, restaurants, catering enterprises and hotels from big resort complexes to small tourist lodgements.
