'Enjoyable Nutrition'

Nikitas Pothoulakis, vice chairman of the board of directors and CEO of Barba Stathis, said, "Our shared foundation lies in drawing inspiration from nature to provide products of unquestionable quality and maximum safety, as well as our need to create an ecosystem of enjoyable nutrition for consumers that can foster well-being for both the present and future generations.

"These two pillars are integral to the success of this project. Barba Stathis remains committed to its investment programme, underscoring our belief in the potential and prospects of the Greek primary sector and the national economy."
