Nicos Gleoudis Kavex S.A. is and has always been an independent, fully family owned Company.

Since 1927 our mission is to supply our customers with the finest leaf tobacco products. To achieve this goal Nicos Gleoudis Kavex S.A. is continuously following 4 simple rules:

  • Learning from the past: Business heritage passed on from our founder, Nicos Gleoudis, to the second and third generations who are still safeguarding important values: long-term vision, goals and solid organization.
  • Adapting to the external environment: For almost a century, except for a five-year interval during World War II, our Company has achieved rapid, uninterrupted growth. Today it is ranked among the top leaf tobacco enterprises in Greece.
  • Innovating in all aspects: Innovation is a permanent feature of Nicos Gleoudis Kavex S.A. Technicians, laborers and management are all totally commited to the realization of our Company’s goals.
  • Investing into the future: The outlook for the industry continues to be challenging. New investments, modernization of procedures and strong collaborations allow us to fully comply with each customer’s new needs.

All above totally complying with our Social Responsibility Policy.

We deal with tobacco but we also deal with people. Awareness of this simple truth accounts for much of our growth to date and will guide our trajectory in the future. We will continue to invest in innovative ideas, people and tomorrow’s technology.

In regard to leaf production, our Company strives to achieve better results through a careful balance of the latest tobacco growing techniques and environmental concerns.

We are contracting directly with individual growers and our specialized agronomists are inspecting every crop from the tobacco seed to the full grown plant.

A Tobacco Identity Preservation Program (TIPP) is ensuring the absence of genetically modified tobaccos at all stages of cultivation, from seeds until the final stages of processing.

Continuous employees and farmers training, agrochemical and seed monitoring, as well as water and soil analyses are the rule.

Moreover, Socio-Economic factors are also addressed, taking into consideration all forms of possible discrimination, the farmer’s standard of living and child labour.


When it comes to environment, there are no objections. Nicos Gleoudis Kavex S.A. is continuously working in order to ensure the lower possible environmental impact. (read more)
