A. MINTIKKIS FARM LTD
History in Brief
A. MINTIKKIS FARM LTD was established in 1960 in the village of Akanthou, located in the northern part of Cyprus by the founder of the company Mr. Andreas Mintikkis. At first the company operated on a regional basis and then gradually expanded. Originally, the company dealt with poultry farming, until 1974.
Although the business lost all its assets and most of its client base in 1974 due to the Turkish invasion, A. Mintikkis Farm recommenced its operations within the same year, initially in Limassol and later moving to Tseri-Nicosia. It was incorporated as a limited company in April 1975.
Gradually the company became the leader in Poultry sales according to the monthly A.C Nielsen retail audit in 2006.
Poultry farming though is not the only operation of the company. In 1985 we decided to enter the frozen foods sector, something which we did quite successfully. The company employs today about 200 people and is one of the leading companies in its field. It has a distribution fleet of 25 refrigerated trucks and an island – wide sales force of ten salesmen, four merchandisers and two supervisors (for retail and HORECA). We also have five people to efficiently process orders.
The scope of the company includes farming, processing, sale and distribution of poultry, cuts and eggs as well as the importation, sale and distribution of frozen foods such as meat, fish and vegetables.
A new central distribution depot with state of the art warehousing and cold store facilities has been constructed in Tseri Area Nicosia, conveniently located right next to the slaughterhouse facilities. The project is fully operational since early 2007 and is expected to contribute greatly to the rapidly expanding sales volumes.
The new facilities comprise a covered area of 2500 m2 plus 800sq.metres offices. Through extensive automation and computerization we optimize the efficiency with which we handle the rapidly expanding volume of business, ensuring superior quality throughout the supply chain, resulting in the best possible service to our customers.
