About 50% of Greeks believe Greek commodities are of high quality and 80% said they are looking for both quality and price before choosing Greek foodstuffs and other goods. It was found that even large multinational corporations are looking for Greek products because of the high cost of raw materials otherwise and the high quality of what Greek companies produce, such as as agricultural products, beer, wine, honey, saffron, and yogurt.
