It's 1964. The brothers Haris M. Hadjikyriacos (left) and George M. Hadjikyriacos (right) decide to establish a cooperation for the manufacture of biscuits under the name "Hadjikyriacos Biscuit Industries".
Due to increasing demand, the brothers decide to expand the factory and invest in new machines. The plant is expanded successfully to accommodate the installation of the first large continuous "Hecrona" biscuit line from Germany and automatic packing machines. This improves efficiency and increases output.
