Corporate Social Responsibility

This broad term is described differently by every business worldwide, but we believe it to refer to the social philosophies that drive us. We are committed to upholding CSR activities that create unbreakable bonds between our business, its employees, and customers.

As a forward-thinking food and cosmetic business in the 21st century, we know we have a responsibility towards our customers. We live in a socially-conscious world, and we understand that smart consumers like you care about the products you use. We believe that you deserve to know where your products come from, which is why we are so open and honest about our product creation and manufacturing processes.

We believe success begins on the inside, which is why we work hard to boost internal employee morale - which always echoes through to our customers. 

To maintain our spot as a socially responsible business, we must take accountability for ourselves and our stakeholders. 

We must stay open, honest, transparent, and visible, setting high standards of ethical behavior to raise the bar in the local and global food and cosmetic industries.

The Agora team takes great pride in working with family farms that cut out the middleman. When we first started our business, we made a promise - a promise to keep prices fair without compromising the quality of our goods. 

We also made a promise to streamline the journey from farm to fork, treating farmers, manufacturers, and our final customers with the respect and dignity they deserve. 

We care about every stakeholder involved with Agora, and we leave no stone unturned when guaranteeing perfection in every collaboration, transaction, and delivery.

Envisioning a Better Future

Agora proudly collaborates with a handpicked assortment of charitable organizations, based in both Bahrain and Greece. We are passionate about making the world a better place in our own humble way, which is why a planned percentage of all product sales is sent straight to our partner charity organizations.

Zero Tolerance for Waste

Part of Agora’s mission involves reduced product wastage, which is a massive contributor to environmental destruction in the world today. Improper waste disposal wreaks havoc on the environment, contaminating water and soil through heavy metals, radioactive materials, and more.

It’s safe to say that cosmetics have become part of all of our daily routines. Unfortunately, this “beautiful waste” is destroying the world. From toothbrushes to disposable plastic razors, makeup brushes and sponges, cleansers and creams that come in plastic tubs, and more, waste is a massive problem in the personal care industry. Billions of tubs, tubes, and bottles are discarded annually, and most of us never even give it a second thought…

… and - that’s not even taking food product waste into account. 

The world wastes over a billion  tons of food  annually , leading the global food waste “movement” that’s destroying our environment. The impact of this waste is unimaginable. Rotting food clogs up landfills, releasing methane - a powerful greenhouse gas - into the atmosphere.  Research shows  that the healthiest consumers are, unfortunately, the most wasteful. Many individuals and families are unable to consume the amount of healthy produce they buy, most of which gets discarded.

At Agora, we want to be part of the solution, not the problem. That’s why we aim to reduce the amount of damaged or expired products in our manufacturing cycle. For example, if any of our stock expires, we’ll never throw it away. We’ll donate it to one of our partner charity organizations in the region, after which the charity is free to use and distribute the products in their personal method of choice. In our factory, you’ll only find the product amounts needed for annual consumption - nothing more, nothing less. This ensures zero waste!

Our Competitive Prices

What comes to mind when you think of non-GMO, Organic, or Halal? You would probably naturally choose these options - but you’re likely also concerned about high prices. After all, how are we supposed to lead healthier lifestyles when it’s so unaffordable for the masses? That’s why Agora works so hard to be the middle-ground consumers have been searching for. We’ve spent years seeking out the very best and most cost-effective products across Greece and  the Mediterranean , keeping our prices as competitive as possible for the benefit of our customers. In fact, our prices are more affordable than most other products on the market! 

The Agora Philosophy

Greece is a paradise for any foodie, renowned worldwide for its irresistible cuisine and lifestyle.
