Our goal for our industry is not only to refrain from having negative impact on the ecosystem, but also to raise the awareness of the citizens about the protection of the environment through our activity.

Environmental Consciousness

Land and its fruits are the strength of our company. For that reason, we recognize the huge responsibility we have as an industry to act with environmental consciousness.

We utilize energy sources that are friendly to the environment, as is the natural gas, while the water used in our company is derived from a licensed drilling in order to secure its rational use and to avoid wastage.

The production factory’s operation does not create waste, except from dried dough which is utilized as animal feed.

In our storages all forklift machinery that burned oil, have been eliminated and has been replaced by electric vehicles, which are friendly to the environment.

After a related research, we proceeded to redesigning the itinerary of our sales-persons and our trucks in order to minimize the unnecessary rides that pollute the environment.

Recycling

Being faithful to recycling, we select for our packages 100% recyclable materials.

Our paper boxes are made of recycled paper, thus contributing to reducing the destruction of the forests.

In our offices, we exclusively use recyclable stationery and we have managed to reduce the volume of garbage routed to landfills sites by 30%.

We fund the purchasing of recycle bins in the Municipalities of Peristeri and Haidari.

We sponsor with about € 100.000 annually the Greek Recycling Company in order for it to keep on its valuable work!

Ecology

The MELISSA – KIKIZAS family supports the EARTH HOUR participating every year in the promotion of this worldwide initiative of the environmental organization against climate change. Together with our employees and partners, a total of 500 families, we put out our lights, calling all our customers to do the same for one hour. The goal of the EARTH HOUR is to raise the awareness of the citizens and to show that climate is…in our hands.

Reforestation

With central slogan “Melissa gives life to the forest” in2009 awide environmental campaign of our company was set off, aiming at awakening everyone on the importance of the protection of the environment and the rehabilitation of our country’s forests which were hurt by the disastrous fires of the previous years. In collaboration with the Non-Governmental Organization “Clean Greece”, we, Melissa people, have given life to a total of four forests at Kalyvia, Penteli, Chalkidiki and Herakleion of Crete, planting an aggregate of 5000 saplings.

At the same time, we invited our consumers to contribute themselves to our reforestation program, purchasing the special pasta packs with the printed sapling of the campaign.
