Wise Greece is a social enterprise with a double mission. It promotes top quality Greek products, through the sales of which it manages to raise money and buy food, in order to donate it to people in need. Through this effort aims to globally increase consumers’ awareness, so that they will embrace these products, follow and integrate the healthy Mediterranean diet in their daily lives and foremost support this cause!
Wise Greece generates profit for the Greek economy and helps the small Greek producers to grow, while at the same time manages to provide food to 3.000.000 Greeks that live under the poverty line, since the profit from the sales transforms into food for unprivileged people.
More than 1.000 Greek products and 100 Greek producers, support Wise Greece so far! Within four years of operation the Greek products have already reached more than 100 stores in Greece and stores in 8 countries abroad, helping the small family owned business from all over Greece to grow and export their products. Most importantly Wise Greece has managed to purchase and donate more than 25 tons of food to Orphanages and Institutions in great need.
The social enterprise coordinates more than 60 volunteers and organizes numerous street events and visits to Orphanages and Soup Kitchens. Also the team often cooks with Wise Greece products to provide hot meals to the homeless and the immigrants that Greece received the past years, while Wise Greece is often presented in international conferences as a successful business model of Social Entrepreneurship in Greece!
