> KCM Agencies KCM Agencies - International Food Trading



About us

KCM Agencies emerged in the Greek Market as an independent legal entity, in 1982.

Upon the foundation of KCM Agencies, some nonnegotiable rules were established, dictated by the professional background and the experiences gained throughout long years in the international business transactions.

The number of the products and the Houses represented were self restricted to maneuverable size, while high degree of specialization was demanded. 

  • The exporters to Greece were properly informed on the advantages offered and the shortcomings occurring in the relative Food Market, through laborious market research information.
  • The importers were assisted to recognize the constant sales propositions, rejecting doubtful opportunism.
  • Strong relations were created with the Suppliers who accepted the role of “business partners” of the local importers.
  • Every brand was handled by a specific sole importer of optimum size. Accepting the “exclusivity in sales”, this sole importer, undertook the obligation to support the marketing aspects of the manufacturer in Greece.
  • New products were introduced in the Greek Market with great success.
  • Finally, the unanimous acceptance of a Business Code of Ethics facilitated the mutual understanding.

Of course, during these years our route was not always easy running, but obstacles, although costly, never diverse KCM Agencies from the objectives originally set.

Today we can proudly declare that the tasks and visions we all shared when establishing this enterprise become true. 

 

The KCM Agencies activities can be summarized presently as follows:

IMPORTS
