Company Profile

The People's Grinding Company (Laiko) was founded in 1948 by a group of coffee shop owners who joined forces to import coffee beans on their own, and thus bypass the postwar import quotas imposed by the British colonial administration.

 

Until the early 1960s, coffee beans at Laiko were ground by hand-operated grinders. The equipment: a second hand manual roaster and a second- hand ground millstone. The staff: Three men and three women. Around that time the company shifted to a manufacturing process that changed its scope and led the way into becoming a major manufacturer and distributor of food products in Cyprus. At the same period the company started its first food imports with the well known "Ion" chocolate, the chewing gum ("Stimorol") and other snacks. In the 1970s and in subsequent decades, potato chips, dry nuts, buiscuits and lollypops were added to the snacks imported and distributed by People's Grinding Company. A polybag manufacturing company (Star Polybag Ltd) was also founded to manufacture packs for Cypriot coffee and the other products of Laiko.

 

Today, around 70% of the group's total turnover is dependent on food and beverage products while coffee sales account for less than 15%. Besides traditional Cyprus coffee, tastes like instant Cacicafe, the Espresso with its rich aroma, the pleasurable Filter coffee and Cappuccino come to complete the coffee range.

 

The company’s products are distributed all over Cyprus through a well-established and organized distribution network with more than 130 vehicles and a team of merchandisers and salesmen visiting an extensive network of small shops and retail stores.

 

 

The Market leader in traditional Cyprus coffee

The People's Grinding Company (Laiko Kafekoption) is the market leader in traditional Cypriot coffee, boasting a 55% share of the local market, importing all its coffee beans from Brazil. The company's manufacturing and food safety standards are certified to international standards (ISO 9000 and ISO 22000). Although export volumes account for a small share of the company’s total sales, current management is keen to expand into foreign markets with its extensive range of coffee products led by the traditional Cyprus coffee marketed in three different product types.
