The next generation
After 45 years of ceaseless work, the time came for Ilias to make way for the next generation. So in 1996, the family business was handed on to Ioannis Alexakis, who was already extremely experienced, having worked for the company from an early age. With an eye to the future, and encouraged by his father, who continued to take an active interest in the business, Ioannis worked tirelessly to expand the company.
Renewal and integration
By 2003, it had become clear that the steady growth in demand both in Greece and abroad had made another expansion necessary. New, modern equipment was acquired, for significantly increased output, and at the same time, the computerization of the whole company began. In 2005, Alexakis moved to new, bigger premises, covering 1300 square metres, at the Menidi Industrial Park in Acharnes, putting the company in the perfect position to combine traditional values with a state-of-the-art production process.
In addition to the general modernisation of buildings and equipment, the company has put in place a certified food safety management system (HACCP-ELOT 1416:2000 and FAO/NHO CODEX ALIMENTARIUS), a certified quality system (ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 22000:2005), and a certified occupational health and safety system (ELOT 1801/OHSAS 18001).
