Accreditation agency Eurocert has been selected by the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels (HCH) as the body that will certify hotels serving traditional Greek breakfast products.
Accommodation units participating in the Greek Breakfast program will be awarded a special sticker by Eurocert following quality checks. The sticker is part of the HCH’s efforts to promote local products through breakfast menus while contributing to the establishment of a tourist identity for each destination boosting in the meantime local economic growth.
”We are proud to be contributing towards the development of the tourism industry and participating with our expertise in the effort of the sector’s stakeholders,” said Ioannis Karagiannis, GM Eurocert.
The Eurocert certification is optional but hotels that do receive the Greek Breakfast sticker will be rewarded with 250 extra points which count towards their category, star and key classification.
Since its launch in 2010, more than 800 hoteliers across Greece have incorporated local products into their morning offerings, upgrading their quality, promoting local culinary traditions and paving the way for financial benefits for local communities.
