88 YEARS OF INNOVATION - WITH “GREEK DNA”

Innovation is an inseparable part of ΥΙΟTIS’ Company history. Ioannis and Maria Yiotis’ initial goal when they founded the company in 1930 was to offer Greek children innovative, nutritious food made with pure ingredients from crops grown in Greece. The result was JOTIS Rice Cereal and JOTIS Maize Cereal Cream, the first infant and baby food produced in Greece. These products contributed to a reduction in child mortality which was extremely high at the time.

From that day on, the company has never stopped innovating. YIOTIS S.A. has always been focused on identifying and following new trends. Because of this, YIOTIS S.A. is continually introducing new elements to our diets - from JOTIS Farina, the first self-raising flour, JOTIS Jelly, the first instant dessert and JOTIS Gateaux, the first ready-to-make sweets, up to the innovative JOTIS Sweet & Balance range which is the first complete range of desserts with a low glycemic index, also suitable for people with diabetes. The company’s history consists of important "firsts" and innovations. Every product is based on JOTIS natural raw materials and high nutritional value, so it is no coincidence that the Company has one of the finest Research and Development Departments in the Greek Food Industry.

Today, the company remains 100% Greek. It has played an integral role in the history and evolution of the Greek diet, and still continues to innovate. The company meets the needs of the whole family, with a rich variety of innovative products that make them the homemaker’s "right hand" when it comes to cooking and baking at home. In addition to this, it has been steadily playing its part in strengthening the Greek economy by consistently implementing its investment plans. In 2012, the company invested in acquiring a new warehouse in Mandra, Attica, with a total area of ​​10,000 sq. m. and capacity for 9,000 pallet stacks.
