We offer the largest range of products in the most competitive prices to companies that are active in wholesale food market, super markets, restaurants, catering, mini market and hotels. We import all the popular Asian Food Brands from respective countries of origin, we create Cardinal branded products in cooperation with the largest foreign manufacturers and we introduce to the Greek market any new tendency launched worldwide in the food market sector.

OUR STORY

Things have changed a lot since 1994 when Cardinal was created, but our love for Asian cuisine has remained the same and at the heart of our efforts, giving us the first place in Asian food companies in the food service and retail sectors. We are proud of what we have accomplished and we have a lot more planned. We look forward to seeing our plans materialize. Thank you for joining us.
