What does the merger mean for Creta Farm and Laconic?
As mentioned in the merger plan, Creta Farm will increase its fixed assets and strengthen its financial position, especially with the addition of the properties owned by Lakoniki (Peristeri, Attica, Sparta, Thessaloniki), which have significant asset value but also of major business importance, since they include a sausage factory in Sparta but also industrial and storage facilities in Attica and Thessaloniki.
In addition, Creta will use the products and brands that Lakoniki currently employs to expand the variety of products it markets and strengthen its market presence.
As for Laconiki, it will join the new scheme of Dimitris Vintzilaios that aims to gain a leading position in the food sector, achieving economies of scale, while its products will gain access to a wide distribution network and greater penetration in a large number of points of sale, while productively and / or economically utilizing its significant real estate.
The planning of the merger with Laconic Food is in full swing since the beginning of the year, with the two companies operating in synchrony. In fact, 80% of the production from Sparta has already been transferred to Rethymnon. In Sparta remains the production of some local products but also new productions such as the new line for vegan codes.
Based on the plans of Dimitris Vintzilaios, Creta Farm will have expanded, in addition to cold cuts, to other categories of food, in a horizon of three years, .
