CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
“Venetis from the Heart”
In response to the huge needs of the Greek society, VENETIS Company has enacted the policy “VENETIS from the Heart”: After 10 pm in every single VENETIS shop, every daily product is offered for free to every person in need.
Free bread for those more vulnerable
In July 2015 when banks ceased their operations due to capital controls, our Company wanting to support the Greek family, offered free bread to pensioners, unemployed, to those having many children and to the needy in every shop. In total, 194.000 loafs of breadwere offered until banks re-opened.
Since then, VENETIS has continued this action towards the ones in need, during holiday season to ensure that no fellow citizen finds himself in lack of a basic necessity such as bread.
“No portion of food wasted”
VENETIS Company is participating in the Network of Rescue and Offer of Food “We Can”, supporting in action the message “No portion of food wasted”.
Only during 2019, our Company has offered 216.122 portions of food, raising food support to various charity organizations throughout Greece.

– Restoration and operation of buildings with historical importance
Aiming to the preservation of our cultural heritage, our company is investing in restoration and operation of historical buildings with high architectural value.
2013 NEON / Omonoia Square. Our branch VENETIS 1948 is operating, respecting fully the architecture and the history of the building. This initiative brought the historic Omonoia Square back to life and contributed to the rekindling of business activity in the once degraded center of Athens.
Bagkeion / Omonoia Square. The new VENETIS shop will function in the emblematic building, built by the renowned architect Ernst Ziller, thus reviving a great specimen of Athenian architecture left in the mercy of time and the elements.
The company has already rented and will revive two more architectural monuments of Athens.
Alexander the Great Hotel / Omonoia Square.
Building in Milioni street, Kolonaki. A representative sample of modern architecture, where “Jackson’s Hall” used to be housed.
