Welcome

Greece is the third largest producer of olive oil in the world and is one of EIT Food’s RIS countries.

The agrifood sector, a solid pillar of the Greek economy

Greece’s good climate together with their geography and their rich diversity of traditional crops has helped them keep their sales at an adequate level throughout the years. Being at the forefront of the food manufacturers’ market, their agrifood exports account for over 30% of their total exports.

Room for Improvement

Owing to their weak connections among private sector, universities and research institutes, boosting synergies between them could increase the number of patent applications in a country with considerable research potential. All this along with a significant growth in organic farming and a need to increase their land productivity implies that Grecque agrifood sector could benefit from achieving current European standards and EIT Food can help them follow the right course.

Greeks adopt The Mediterranean Diet in its purest form and enjoy lower heart disease, obesity, cancer, and Alzheimer's rates.
