MILKRO Hellas Publisher Services Limited, our Greek subsidiary, is proud to announce that it has just been awarded Financial Times Distributor of the Year 2015 at the Distripress Congress held in Brussels.

As the Company only entered into international press distribution in June 2014, this achievement underwrites the successes we have achieved for all the international press in a short period of time and despite the challenging conditions in the market.

Commenting on the award our executive Directors Michalis Kontopyrgos and Mark Miller said ‘ apart from the prestigious recognition to the service provided and the sales increase achieved, our greatest appreciation is to our staff who have worked so hard over the last 16 months to set up and grow the business. The long nights and lack of sleep in taking the operation and our logistics service to where it is today is down to the hard work and dedication from all our team, so our thanks goes out to the them and of course to the Financial Times and all the other major international titles that have trusted us with the distribution in Greece’

Today, MILKRO prints over 25 international titles at our distribution centre in Athens and distributes all the international newspapers and magazines on sale in Greece to circa 2,000 selling points on the mainland and all the major tourist islands.
