Hecot’s entry into the durum wheat sector was initiated in 2010 by the so-called fight for acreage between cotton and wheat. As our strategy is to expand our business operations and act whenever opportunities arise, we have decided to diversify by entering the durum wheat sector. In this initial step we have focused on bringing together reliable suppliers & buyers of the domestic market.
Successfully, we supply the biggest pasta producer in the Balkans (Melissa-Kikizas/ Melissa.gr) and the biggest milling company in Greece (Loulis Mills/ https://www.loulismills.gr/en). Being an export-oriented company our next target is to develop similar business channels overseas. Our suppliers are big and sophisticated players of our agricultural market who are taking serious positions on durum wheat.
