Founded in 1979, Kore SA is a relative newcomer to the Greek market. Nonetheless, during its 25 years of existence, Kore grew from its humble beginnings as a distributor for imported seed oils into the largest bottler of vegetable oils of Greece and one of its largest distribution companies for food and other products.
Today, Kore bottles 35,000 MT of vegetable oils, out of which 10,000 MT are olive oils, and reaches a yearly turnover for distributed products of € 55,000,000 (2006).
Kore SA entered the olive oil market after 1992, and slowly but methodically built up its own origination network of storage tanks and laboratory facilities, lead by a team of expert raw materials purchasers. This approach of total vertical integration of the olive oil chain, from the purchase of the freshly pressed olive oil at the mill until the delivery of the conditioned oil on the consumer shelf, lies at the root of Kore’s success in this highly specialized sector.
