With five hypermarkets, Papantoniou Supermarkets is the leading supermarket chain in the Paphos District. It also has a noteworthy presence in the Limassol District, operating three hypermarkets. In December 2019, Papantoniou Supermarket opened a hypermarket in Nicosia. The first Papantoniou Supermarket opened in Chloraka, Paphos, in 1987, with just 150 m² of selling space. After several additions and renovations, the flagship store now has 2,000 m² of retail space.
Over the years, the company has expanded, creating a chain of nine supermarkets, with a total retail selling area of 23.000 m² and stocking over 80.000 products.
The Company has developed very strong co-operations with international organizations for the design, the construction and the equipment of the stores as well as with distinguished service providers for the continuance of staff training.
Aside from all local major importers and distributors and leading producers, the Company also co-operates directly with over 150 European suppliers and another 50 worldwide.
Papantoniou Supermarkets was the first chain in the sector in Cyprus to be simultaneously certified with the ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management Systems) and ISO 22000:2005 (Food Safety Management Systems) standards. This verifies the high standards that the Company sets on its operations, complying with all Cypriot and European laws, regulations and standards concerning food quality and hygiene and underscores its respect towards its thousands of loyal customers.
CAC Green Products Farm Ltd
Sustaining the family’s tradition in agricultural production, in 2010 Papantoniou Hypermarkets established CAC Green Products Farm Ltd, a subsidiary agricultural company which meets all supermarket quality and freshness standards. Since then, it has been a fundamental part of Papantoniou Hypermarkets’ success by supplying the stores with the highest quality of fresh fruit and vegetables.
