It was founded by industrial and commercial enterprises in the Greek market, which either place packaged products in the Greek market, or manufacture packaging and up to date number more than 2,600 contracted companies. The Central Union of Municipalities and Communities (KEDE) also takes part in HERRCO’s share capital.
