«Kapotas S.A.‘s» business activities revolve around trading and the provision of storage and distribution services related to the food and beverage sector, covering a wide range of products and geographical areas.
In early 2005 the company was founded by Spyros Kapotas, with its main activity being the trading of «DELTA» company’s ice creams for the prefecture of Achaia and the northern part of the Prefecture of Ilia.
A year later, in March 2006, an exclusive cooperation agreement was signed with «PEPSICO-IVI» for the prefecture of Achaia, which is still thriving and in effect.
In 2007 the company’s commercial activity was expanded further via a new contract with the «UNILEVER» group, concerning its «ALGIDA» ice creams, and their trading in the Prefecture of Achaia and the northern part of the Prefecture of Ilia. Our Collaboration with «ALGIDA» was further expanded in 2008, when our company was designated as the storage and distribution center for southwest Greece.
Meanwhile, within the same year, we undertook the distribution of «FRIESLAND CAMPINA HELLAS S.A.» ‘s products in the Prefecture of Achaia and the southern part of the Prefecture of Aitoloakarnania.
