Benaki Phytopathological Institute (BPI)

Established in 1929, Benaki Phytopathological Institute (BPI)MFI, Legal Entity of Public Law (NPDD), is a non-profit research body supervised by the Ministry of Rural Development and Food. It was the first Greek research institute to have a broad scientific basis in plant health and plant protection. Since then, the Institute has earned itself a reputation as a guardian of quality, safety and sustainable development in agriculture. Those of us working here today are mindful of this legacy and remain committed to the highest standards of respect for the environment and human health, thereby supporting the wider economy and civil society of Greece.

The scientific activities of the Institute are organized in three Scientific Directorates:

  • Phytopathology
  • Entomology and Agricultural Zoology
  • Control of Agricultural Drugs and Phytopharmaceuticals

The strength of the Institute today is the breadth and depth of the scientific specialization of its staff, making it unique in terms of the combination of specialties from agronomists and specialized toxicologists, ecotoxicologists, analytical chemists, environmentalists and environmental engineers. More than 100 scientists make up the Institute's workforce, which is dedicated to applied research, providing technical information, advice and services to the Ministry of Rural Development and Food, to producers and to Greek and European industry.

Molos Cooperative Thermopyles Pistachio


The Molos Cooperative Thermopyles Pistachiohas been established since July 27, 2011. It consists of 70 producers, whose estates are located around and within the wider estate area of the Municipal District of Molos and the historical area of Thermopylae.


It consists of an area of approximately 1,800 acres, which extends from the coastal zone to the southern mountains at an altitude of 400-500 meters.
