WELCOME TO BENAKI PHYTOPATHOLOGICAL INSTITUTE (BPI)
Established in 1929, Benaki Phytopathological Institute 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.
Alongside our many other roles and tasks, we at BPI specialize in risk assessment and advice on the safe usage of agricultural chemicals with regards to the protection of human health and that of the environment more generally. The Institute also performs analytical work and mandated checks to ensure the safety of foodstuffs and other agricultural products. Due to the wealth of general and specialized knowledge retained by our scientific staff, our modern infrastructure and range of professional connections, BPI is uniquely well-positioned to offer a range of services to partners from both state and private sectors; national, international and multi-national.
Benaki Phytopathological Institute is a Legal Entity of the Public Sector, donated by the National Benefactor Emmanouel Benakis. It operates under the supervision of the Hellenic Ministry of Rural Development and Food.
