Corporate Social Responsibility
As a growing regional European company, we are extremely sensitive to local societies and especially the local societies we operate, we produce, we sell to, we employ from, we source at and we live in.
We operate mainly in Bulgaria, but with an outlook to south European eastern countries such as Romania, Greece, Turkey, etc., but we sell to American, Greek, German, French, Spanish, Italian and British clients. Therefore, not only for efficiency but also for effectiveness reasons we are, for the last 15 years, ultra socially sensitive with:

• a universal code of Business Conduct
• a standard Human Resources Policy
• an equal Rights and Social Policy
• a UN standard Health and Safety Policy
• a OECD compliant Environmental Policy
• a diverse community work
• an educational policy

Our employees, workers, executive people, associates, suppliers and buyers coming out from different and diverse countries, economies and cultures such as Bulgaria, Germany, France, Greece, Holland even China.
Only a universally accepted code of conduct could make these operations viable and profitable. Good, safe and healthy working environment, equal opportunities, good and satisfying pay and working hours, integrity among employees, management and suppliers, principles, measures and anti-measures against corruption, compliance with the local laws and regulations and the EU guiding principles is compulsory to every strategic business unit.

Environmental Policy

Our Board of Directors has initiated a group-wide environmental policy for the last five years. Moreover, we can not compete without taking care of the environment we work at when more than 90% of our activity is taking place in major cities in Bulgaria.

Our guiding principles are:

• Establish environmental responsibility towards our employees, brands and local communities

• Support our suppliers, contractors and business in implementing our objectives

The sub-committee of the Board, chaired by Mrs. Olga Therianou, meets on an annual basis to review company performance against environmental policy.

Our environmental management systems will be closely monitored throughout the year. Where feasible, we will seek to reduce wasteful consumption of sources and energy. To ensure a continuous process of improvement in our environmental performance, we will set realistic targets and measure our progress against those targets in such areas as:

• Energy consumption
