Our main goal is to become better every day. Through the organizational and operational structure of our company, we try to improve customer’s satisfaction and build trust in the relationship between them and our products and our franchisee partners. According this, we have established, implemented and apply the Quality, Food Safety and Environmental Management System according the international standards: ISO9001:2015, ISO 22000:2005, ISO 14001:2015 certified by TUV HELLAS.
Within the Integrated Management System, we ensure that each Gregory’s store follows the best practices that ensure compliance with the law and our standards for the high quality operation of our stores.
In order to confirm the implementation of HACCP and company’s specifications in our stores, we carry out audit and inspections by appropriately trained and experienced staff at specified intervals. Through this process, we ensure the high levels of quality, safety, hygiene and service of our stores.
For every member of Gregory’s family, product safety is not negotiated in order to fulfill the promise we give to you: “to offer always the best quality”. According to this we designed and organized our Integrated Management System in two axes: HYGIENE & SAFETY and the ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS of our products. This way, we can provide to all of our consumers high quality products and to maintain high standards in our services.
The basic parameters of product quality are the microbiological characteristics, the organoleptic characteristics and the nutritional value. Our team of experienced and specialized scientific staff has developed a Precautionary Product Control System that ensure the consistent quality of our products and the compliance with our specifications for the hygiene & safety of products and the condition of supply, delivery, storage, preparation and distribution.
HYGIENE & SAFETY

We create an educational program for training in Health & Security food principles the company’s staff, who handle food at all stages of food chain.

To ensure the organoleptic characteristics of our products we have proceed to product standardization in cooperation with our suppliers. We create detailed specifications and guidelines for our products; we define product lifetime (with safety and organoleptic criteria) and we educate consultants and staff of our store. Also, we organize extra educational programs in our educational center and control procedures applying to the stores.
