The beginning

The history of Intertan S.A. begins in 1922, when the pioneering mind of Anastasios Nik. Taniskidis established in Chalkida the first “halva” individual industry of Greece. Soon enough, the business activities of this newly established industry expand to the exploitation of local, natural salt marshes and in 1930 the industry becomes a salt production and processing unit.

After 30 successful years of existence the business is handed over to the second generation. The three Taniskidis sons realize the current commercial trends at that time and strive for immediate development. Following that vision in 1960 the salt industry turns into a modern business named “Taniskidis Bros. S.A.”. This flexible business model enables them to take advantage of significant commercial opportunities that arise and to also initiate multi-year partnerships through representation and distribution on behalf of powerful companies in the field of food and beverages. The success of the company is sealed by the development of a solid wholesale network.

The transition to food distribution

In 1992 “Taniskidis Bros. S.A.” expands its business activities to other fields and with the simultaneous presence and participation of the third generation, Intertan S.A. is born. Both companies are vital parts of the group of businesses “Taniskidis Group”.

Intertan S.A. becomes the leader when it comes to the fields of representation and distribution of food, beverages and related products and continues to develop commercial partnerships with muntinational companies, such as Nestle, with a partnership of over 50 years of excellent cooperation.
