About Us

History and Information

The company was founded in 2004 with the acquisition of a family business that produced traditional Cretan pastries. In April 2005 KRITON ARTος relocated to privately-owned facilities covering 3000 m². That same year it came up with the innovative idea of private label products. It was the first company to produce Cretan baked snacks under the label of a well known supermarket chain. In November 2005 it was certified with HACCP ELOT 1416 and IFS Higher level.

In April 2005, the company moved into own premises over 4,000 m2 in ‘Ammos’ Position in Kalithea in Crete Heraklion Industrial area in a private plot of 22,000 sq.m.

Moving in modern facilities, marked the beginning of an ambitious investment program, with a view to updating and automating the production process. From 2005 until today, Kriton Artos SA has invested more than EUR 4 million to buy sophisticated equipment (mixers, ovens, cold storage, packaging machines) and in expansion and improvement of its facilities.
