Main activity of the company is the planning, production, packaging, storing and export of Cyprus potatoes, winter and spring crop. Roha has many options for packing choices depending on customer request. These packaging solutions are used mostly by supermarkets which have direct access to the consumer. A more convenient approach to wholesalers can be our variety of polypropylene bags which they come in 10kg, 15kg, 20kg and 25kg. Also Roha provides industrial packaging of 1250kg (Jumbo Bags) for customers who want to repack in their own packaging solutions or for customers who want to process the potatoes in different ways. Roha also provides a service called Private Label/Branding which we can pack potatoes for other companies with their own diacritics and logos. The company also exports Cyprus potatoes. European Union countries are our main destinations like Greece, UK, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Poland and Austria. Also export to third countries like Croatia and Moldova, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar and other.
Roha Premium Potato Ltd was established in October 2005.
The total number of staff at the company is 10-20 (including the management team - excluding the producers).

The biggest challenge faced so far is the monitoring of the tasks and the procedures related to picking the potatoes. Although the products (potatoes) are growing and cultivating in red soils area using latest technology equipment on the guidelines of GlobalGAP with certified Seeds, they are distributed in the machinery/picking lines, where Roha’s staff should pick the high-quality potatoes to be packed and distributed. Another challenge is monitoring the distribution procedure.
Robotic arms are used to automate and optimize the procedure of picking potatoes Ensure on-time delivery: a custom-made system to automate the tracking delivery system, rather than just send a tracking number to the customer. To increase the packing lines, to meet the high demand Increase and expand the business in and outside Europe Become a green company (environmentally friendly), by replacing all plastic packaging with an eco-friendly material (the material is still under discussion)
The company is located in the Kokkinochoria (red earth area), the heart of Cyprus garden, where the highest quality local products are growing. ORTHODOXOS & MISOS Warehouse LTD is a processing and packing company where the best quality of fruits and vegetables are picked, washed, cut and vacuum packing (suitable method to store fresh food as it inhibits bacterial growth) such as potatoes, carrots, onions, beet roots and garlic. The company also supplies its products to different restaurants and hotels throughout Cyprus.
Since September 2016, the company ORTHODOXOS & MISOS Warehouse LTD supplies fresh –washed-cut fruits and vegetables throughout Cyprus.
The total number of staff at the company is 10-15 (including management and depending on the season)

Due to the fact that the company works with perishable products (products with short life time), the biggest challenge is the prevention of food waste. Nowadays, it is very important to reduce (or even better to eliminate) food waste. This keeps the company from expanding its business and supply supermarkets directly. Thus, the company used vacuum packing which extends the shelf life of foods and reduces the column of the package. However, concerning the environment, vacuum sealer and plastic rolls are used for food sealing. Instead of plastic, the company will prefer to use any other environmentally friendly material for the packing.
More production lines suitable for picking-washing-cutting a wider variety of fruit and vegetables. Increase and expand the business in and outside Cyprus, if possible Become a green company (environmentally friendly), by replacing all plastic packaging with an eco-friendly material (the material is still under discussion).

It is very important for the leadership of an organization to promote an enterprise-wide digital culture that involves governance and change it. For a successful digital transformation, management needs to change many things and processes, such as raising awareness and understanding the business ecosystem, adopting innovation as a business model, adopting methods for planning and governance and, last but not least, the evaluation criteria to substantithe strategic digital initiatives at enterprise level. The consumer habits of our customers evolve rapidly through new digital technologies to simplification, convenience and getting a quick satisfaction. As a result, all customer interaction points must evolve together with their needs. Written communications have made room for the phone and online interactions where the possibilities develop exponentially (emails, mobile messaging, social media, robochats, video chats and much more).

The people who operate in the company are the most valuable resources of any organization. It remains a challenge to optimize productivity and flexibility. This requires taking into account the IT talents and skills management, as well as a continuous programme of skills development to achieve and sustain the level of knowledge required to effectively fulfill their roles in place Of today's digital work. The digital age changes the way we work and interact, there will be many other innovations, and we want to be part of this reinvention process "with everything he assumes, but at the pace and through the steps we set. To achieve the true potential of industry 4.0, the company must plan rigorously digital transformation. We need to start today to search and training of the best talents with digital skills and elaborate a clear plan on how the digital factory will look like.
