The Museum has a vision: preserving the history and tradition of the cultivation and processing of wheat, documenting the role and importance of bread in various aspects of everyday life down the centuries, and highlighting the Mediterranean diet as a way of life and an aspect of culture.
The Museum's goals are to:
- Spotlight the history and tradition of our food culture.
- Inform the public about the benefits of a balanced diet.
- Raise awareness of food waste and loss, its consequences and what we can do about it.
An active presence in the Greek economy and Greek society for over two centuries, Loulis Mills has a long tradition of social engagement, caring for our fellow men, a love for flour, contributing to the economy, and respecting the environment. All of this, along with our vision and our values, form the foundations of our corporate culture, a core guiding principle of which is corporate responsibility.
Our commitment to making an effective, long-term contribution is confirmed by the creation of the "Loulis Museum: From wheat to bread".
Loulis Museum today
High school attendance and public response from the first day of its operation led to the reorganization of the existing exhibition in 2017 and the addition of a new wing that consists of 12 new sections. At the same time, due to the enormous response from the student community, it was necessary to enrich the educational programs.
Its design was made by a museographer / architect and by a specialized team with the aim of a better presentation of the exhibition and the effectiveness of the educational programs. The visitor watches the evolution of the most basic type of human nutrition, bread, and how important was our civilization in combination with the changes that took place in the field of agricultural and industrial production.
Loulis Museum preserves memories and traditions, stories and myths and, above all, the labor and love of centuries, leading up to the present bread to our table. At the same time it raises concerns and proposes solutions for contemporary issues that concern us all, such as our daily diet and waste of food.
