BACKGROUND

The Path to Development & Progress

Shortly before the start of the new millennium, a time when AGRIS was at its dynamic peak, the company took advantage of the successes of the previous years  and made a strong entry into the seedlings production market, a market in which there are still very few Greek companies, making its development model even more competitive.

In 2001, the Management's insightful, bold and innovative spirit led to its decision to limit its activities to the area of Fields Crop and Floriculture, and to focus on the production of Horticulture propagating material and research, establishing AGRIPLANT in Klidi Imathia. It was a move of business independence and calculated risk, sealed through the merger of the two companies in 2010.

Two years earlier, in 2008, the company ventured its expansion to Balkan markets through the establishment of AGRIS Bulgaria, and continued in 2011 with the establishment of AGRIS Romania.

AGRIS' path was marked by milestone dates which changed things in the Greek Horticulture sector. By looking back at these milestones, one can see AGRIS' development through time.
