ABOUT THE COMPANY
E. Pyrga Ltd was founded in 1973 by entrepreneurial couple Zenon and Eleni Pyrga. E. Pyrga Ltd Ice cream and Ice Cube Industry has grown from a small workshop to a modern, technologically advanced manufacturing facility situated in Ayios Athanasios Industrial Estate in Limassol.
E. Pyrga continuously strives to develop new products and unique flavors while ensuring the usage of only natural ingredients, sourced from local farmers and growers. Every year the company uses hundreds of tons of locally produced fresh milk, fresh eggs and fresh fruit offering an indirect support to the local agriculture and farming sectors. As part of the long standing dedication to quality and food safety, E. Pyrga places great importance on setting and meeting strict quality standards at every stage of its work process: beginning with the sourcing and acquisition of the raw materials and all the way through, FIFO and Just-in-Time processing, production, packing, storage and distribution.
The company set high quality standards to guarantee that each product that departs its plant meets the required specifications and quality.
E. Pyrga Ltd is a firm believer in constantly improving its quality assurance and quality control processes, through strict implementation of food safety systems, while ensuring the occupational safety and health of its employees. The company preserves the highest standards of food safety and quality in accordance with the ISO 22000 and HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) food safety system since 2004.
Having a sense of responsibility towards the community and the environment, E. Pyrga is a certified member of Green-Dot Cyprus, thus striving not only to achieve its business targets but also aiding to a more clean and sustainable planet. Additionally, in 2015 E. Pyrga Ltd has installed a photovoltaic solar panel array in its premises that provides 35% of its energy usage taking advantage of the sunny weather of Cyprus while reducing its carbon footprint, making its products and processes more environmentally friendly.
E.
