Grecian Delight® Foods, a family owned business, is the leading and preferred manufacturer and marketer of high quality value-added Greek and other Mediterranean food products. One of Grecian Delights' 2009 Environmental Initiatives included a 5 percent electricity reduction.
To achieve these goals, Grecian Delight® Foods completed an energy conservation project to the lighting system in their facility through AEP Energy, making the building's lighting 80 percent more efficient than the "standard building model" in ASHRAE 90.1-2001.
