Social Responsibility

SHOWING SENSITIVITY TO THE COMMUNITY

YIOTIS S.A. was founded in 1930, and its basic aim was to create products which were good both for children’s diet and their growth in an era when infant mortality was at epidemic proportions in Greece. Throughout its history, YIOTIS Company has always been in tune with society and its needs. The Company continues this tradition today as it turns its gaze to the future.

The core pillar of the YIOTIS’s Corporate Social Responsibility Programme is to support children, mothers and families in need. As part of this programme, the company supports Non-Profit Organizations, Foundations, Charity Associations, etc. which support vulnerable social groups such as children, single parent families and families in need. YIOTIS Company provides this support through sponsorship and donations.

Having accepted the overwhelming importance of its social role, as part of the company’s philosophy, YIOTIS Company consistently provides long-term support to many organisations, such as:

• For more than 15 years, it has been supporting the Children's Shelter in Peristeri

• Since 2015, the Company has been meeting the dietary needs of the children which attend the nursery run by the "Friends of the Child" Association. Recently, the Company received an award from the Association to honour its role as one of the major sponsors supporting its work

In addition, the Company frequently provides support to charitable foundations and associations, such as ‘ELEPAP’, ‘The Smile of the Child’, ‘Oloi Mazi Boroume’, ‘Merimna’, ‘Aggalia’, ‘The Ark of the World’ etc.

In 2016, the Company developed the communication platform "Zacharoplathoume", which includes, among other things, charitable activities.
