We are actively and substantially responsible
The presence of TOTTIS BINGO in the Greek market, for more than 45 years, we believe is inextricably linked to the ethos that governs our business activity and the respect received by our consumers, internal and external partners. The corporate social responsibility policy consistently followed by our companies consists of the following main axes and pillars for our sustainability.
With direct or indirect actions we support the Greek society. Practical proof is the fact that all of our products are produced exclusively in Greece. Our decision to support the Greek economy and society in the difficult times of recent years is unwavering.
We make sure that all of our employees come from the local communities where we operate. Our presence in the Florina Industrial Area for four decades makes this commitment even more important.
We give priority to Greek producers and suppliers of our raw materials. Because we want Greek agricultural societies to remain viable and competitive.
We respect our consumers, offering them high-quality products with the best possible quality-price ratio. We claim the strictest safety and quality certifications for our food. We are evolving research into foods with ever higher nutritional value.
The sustainability of natural resources is fatally linked to the sustainability of a food industry. We want the land, the adequacy and quality of the raw materials and the healthy farming communities to support us and to be supported by us.
For this reason, we oppose the use of genetically modified ingredients and support environmentally conscious producers who apply modern methods of land exploitation and respect natural resources.
For the same reason, we harmonize our operation with updated European environmental protection legislation. Through continuous investments, we upgrade the systems that reduce the environmental footprint of our activity.
