Development continued, with Supermarkets Papantoniou becoming the leading supermarkets in Cyprus, certified with the international standards ISO 9001 and ISO 22000, fully harmonising with the European regulations regarding quality and hygiene assurance.
Quality and hygiene that are further assured by our affiliated firm, CAC Green Products Farm - our own agricultural company that provides our supermarkets with fresh fruits and vegetables.
In 2019, Supermarkets Papantoniou formed a partnership with Sainsbury’s for the exclusive representation of all Sainsbury’s products across Cyprus. Sainsbury’s products rank first in popularity in Great Britain, thanks to their unique quality, great range of products, and, of course, their competitive prices.
In the meantime, the Company has invested in the creation of a modern processing and packaging facility of fresh meat, fruits and vegetables. The project is expected to be finished within 2019 and will meet all European regulations and quality and hygiene assurance standards. The project was co-financed by the European Union and the Republic of Cyprus, under the Rural Development Programme 2014 – 2020.
