The idea of wholesaling and importing fresh fruit and vegetables began during the 50s by Nicolas Papanikolis, while trying to survive the economic crisis in which Cyprus was suffering at the time. He started off the idea and from the beginning it seemed that there were serious prospects of success.
Since the late 60s, his son Andreas Papanikolis, took over and founded the Company:
