Deep in the heart of the well-known Macedonian pasturelands lies Koufalia, Thessaloniki, and the milk processing plant of Mevgal.
This privileged geographical position allows Mevgal, the largest dairy producer in Northern Greece, to collect most of the fresh milk produced in the county and neighbouring areas, from nearly 1000 farms on a daily basis.Since all the farms are local, processing can begin within a few hours of milking.
The freshness and premium quality of the raw material is reflected in the wide array of end products: fresh pasteurised milk, high-pasteurised milk, yogurts (both European and traditionalGreek), cheeses, desserts and rice puddings, jellies and creams. Delicious, healthy products, delivered every day to some 26,000 sales points across Greece and, since export constitutes 25% of MEVGAL’s annual turnover, to 30 different countries as well.
Founded in 1950, today the company provides employment for around 700 people in Koufalia, as well as at other locations countrywide(Athens, Thessaloniki, Halkidiki, Katerini, Xanthi, Herakleion, Hania, etc). MEVGAL collaborates with hundreds of local suppliers and,besides enjoying the support of Greek dairy farmers, has developed long-term financial relationships with a whole host of local organisations. Due to these affiliations, MEVGAL has become a major driving force in the business environment of Northern Greece.
The MEVGAL brand is synonymous with high quality, tradition, healthy nutrition, the very best raw materials, current technology, innovation and,fundamentally,placing trust in its people.
An impressive range of 170 authentic products, crafted lovingly by experienced people, is shipped daily from the Macedonian region to complement the family tables of thousands of consumers, making MEVGAL’s motto, “Milk. The essence of our life”, a reality
