FARCOM: 2.000 Hand Sanitizers donated to the General Police-Headquarters of Thessaloniki

FARCOM readily responded to the appeal by the Deputy Minister of the Interior (of Macedonia & Thrace), Mr. Theodoros Karaoglou, to donate antiseptics to the General Police Directorate Headquarters of Thessaloniki.

The company, continuing its Corporate Social Responsibility actions and activities, provided 2.000 Hand Sanitizers for the hygienic protection of the forces who daily offer their front-line services. The donation reflects FARCOM’s conviction that support by the private sector during periods of major crises is critical and has a decisive role to play.

The donation was delivered by the Deputy Minister himself on Monday 30 November 2020, at the Police Headquarters Building, in the presence of Police Major General Lazaros Mavropoulos, the General Police Director of Thessaloniki, and Ms. Stella Soumski, FARCOM Marketing Director.

FARCOM standing by the children of the GREEK CHILDREN’S VILLAGE at Filiro

FARCOM readily responded to the appeal made by the Greek Children’s Village at Filiro to meet the fundamental needs of its facilities that are experiencing an unprecedented crisis.

Due to the circumstances caused by the pandemic in the country, the Children’s Village is facing unprecedented dwindling in sponsorship and donation support, which exacerbates the threat against its very operation.

FARCOM, following up its efforts to support vulnerable social groups in a spirit of respect and responsibility, responded readily by donating to the village personal hygiene and children’s hygiene products, both for the children and their carers, wishing them to soon overcome the major challenges they are facing.

FARCOM received another corporate excellence honorary distinction at “SALUS & THE KIND HEARTS” Event, organised by the New Times Publishing Organisation. The event was held at Horizontes Restaurant, on Mt. Lecabettus, on Tuesday 27 October 2020.

FARCOM was represented online by its Marketing Director, Ms. Stella Soumski, who addressed the audience and conveyed the sincere appreciation of company administration.

This award was received by FARCOM during a landmark year, as 2020 marks the company’s golden jubilee. FARCOM has been a major cosmetics industry in Greece, offering consumers top quality and aesthetics products for half a century.

Besides, by the end of 2020, FARCOM’s new, ultra-modern production plant is to be completed, deployed over an area of 10,000m2; the project’s investment budget exceeds  5,000,000 Euros  and makes it a pivotal point for further growth in the years to come.

FARCOM: Antisceptics donated to SOS Children’s Village in Plagiari




Personal antiseptic packets have been donated by FARCOM to protect children residing under the guardianship of SOS Children’s Village in Plagiari. Once again, FARCOM has confirmed its corporate social support to agencies fostering children.

SOS Children’s Villages provide care and protection to children who, for whatever reason, cannot be brought up by their parents. This supporting care is provided on a stable and long-term basis from the early sensitive years of childhood to the point when the young person can stand on their own two feet – properly prepared for life as an ethical and vocationally qualified member of society.

We would like to warmly thank Mr. Agathonikos Drepanidis for his acknowledgement letter to FARCOM.

We wish health and prosperity to him, the children, and all the people of SOS Children’s Village for their invaluable daily social work.
