Large areas of land available for agricultural investments
Agriculture and food production have always been one of Greeks’ main activity. The fertile soil and the mild climate consist the two principal causes why agriculture in Greece is a thriving economic sector.
Agriculture is centered in the plains of Thessaly, Macedonia, and Thrace, where corn, wheat, barley, sugar beets, cotton, and tobacco are harvested. But this is not the whole picture. Greek soil is appropriate for the production of even exotic ingredients such as truffle and saffron. Introduction of new technologies, such as new kinds of greenhouse, and the existence of qualified scientists contribute to the constant development of the sector.
Foreign investment in agriculture has an immense impact on the food sector and the economy at large. In Greece already multinational companies are established making good use of the benefits offered by greek land.
Answering to the question “why one should make an agricultural investment in Greece?”, the existence of large areas of land available for cultivation, the high quality resources, the advanced processing food facilities and the cooperation with agronomists and researchers who contribute to the possibility of producing new kind of food products using advanced techniques of packaging bring an added value to the foreign investor.
