KYKNOS Greek Canning Co is one of the oldest canning companies in Europe founded in Nafplio, Greece in 1915. The label is a recognized household name throughout the country for its tomato products and is one of the leading companies in the Greek market. The factory and distribution centre are located in the sunny, fertile plains of Ilia region, close to ancient Olympia.
It’s been a whole century since the first KYKNOS can appeared in Greek households. Since then much has changed. However, in all these years the consumers’ love and trust in KYKNOS have undoubtedly been enduring.
This means a lot to all of us at KYKNOS S.A. Greek Canning Company. We have been faithful to our founder’s values since 1915: top quality products, care for people, ethical business practices and openness are some them.
This is achieved by constantly inspecting every step of the production procedure: from seed to shelf, as we say.
