Elvida Foods is among the leading companies in Greece in the production of Authentic Gyros, Souvlaki and meat based products. It is the company that initiated the industrial production of Frozen Gyros and Souvlaki 16 years ago.
In 2002, “Hellenic Gyros” established one of the first production lines of Gyros in Greece. The production line for us is not only mass production but also standard level of quality, specifications of products, and advanced production methods. With the addition of the excellent choice of ingredients and the personalized customer service, all resulted “Hellenic Gyros” in being the market leader in just a few years.
In 2006 the shareholders structure changed and new development paths were created. Other product categories were launched to be addressed not only to Grill Houses but also to restaurants, hotels and the retail market. Hellenic Gyros, our historic brand name, remained and we initiated Nostimost as an additional brand name dedicated to retail. At the same time we changed our corporate name to Elvida Foods to reflect our new product lines and expand our presence to new export markets.
Since the first years of its operation, ELVIDA FOODS remains focused to the high quality and safety of its production lines. They are all certified according to ISO 22000, IFS, BRC standards. Due to automatic traceability and the minimization of human intervention, we can support with real data the constant high quality of all of our products. It is our pride that the ELVIDA FOODS factory has been successfully audited 3 times for best practices by the European Federation of Food Safety Authority (EFSA). In recent years, Elvida Foods has participated in all national committees and initiatives in order to establish official norms and specifications for the production methods of several traditional Greek products including Gyros and Souvlaki. Additionally, we have taken several international initiatives to protect the authenticity of Greek Gyros.
From day one, ELVIDA FOODS’ export strategy was directed to the end consumer through retail stores all over the world. Today, ELVIDA FOODS operates in Europe, USA, Canada and the Arabic Peninsula, exporting products to more than 20 countries all over the world. Recently, Elvida Foods completed 3 different investment programs, investing more than €3 million. Our premises now cover 6,000sqm and we never stop investing in state-of-the-art machinery and most of all, people. “The highest level of our 150 employees here at ELVIDA FOODS and our passion for quality and delicious authentic Greek food, will always be the key drivers for our success in the future,” commented CEO Dr Stelios Skaribas.
