NEW GREEK PRODUCTS ON THE RISE
More than 65,000 new Greek products entered the market from the beginning of 2010 until the beginning of 2013, according to data released by barcoding company 520 Barcode on April 2.
Despite the dire economic conditions of this crucial three-year period, more than 65,000 barcodes were released with the 520 prefix country code, attributed to products manufactured in Greece, traded domestically and internationally.
Food & Drink products dominate the new releases, representing 68% of the total new product codes. Olive oil, wine and honey were the products with the most commercial releases.
The cosmetics sector takes second spot in new products, thanks to the outstanding growth of the natural cosmetics field. The bulk of new releases originated in Attica, followed by Macedonia and the Peloponnese.
