DELCOF S.A. was founded in 1999, making use of a program of the Ministry of Development, created to establish business clusters. The Greek fruit canning industry became a pioneer in this effort and used this opportunity to create a horizontal network which, according to the terms defined by the law, acts in the interest of the whole industry. Today, it is the only network that has survived among those established in 1999, demonstrating the dynamic of both the industry and the company.
DELCOF is active in the issues of quality and certification of our products, in the promotion of Greek canned fruits, in highlighting the nutritional value and quality of canned fruits, in addressing global trade barriers to our products, in research and development of new products, in the study of common problems and the promotion of solutions.
The Network has the legal form of an S.A. The company’s premises cover an area of 40.000 square meters in the region of Kopanos, Naoussa, in the heart of the main fruit producing and processing area of Greece. It is located in the buildings of the first peach cannery that ever operated in Greece, “Vermio-Naoussa”. DELCOF also operates a Chemical Analysis Laboratory certified by the Hellenic Accreditation System (E.SY.D.).
