The business was formally founded in 1930, despite the fact that the first chocolate recipe has been produced since 1927. The main factory is located in Neo Faliro, Pireaus. As time went on, Ion introduced other chocolate-flavored confectionary items, including croissants and spreadable chocolate. However, its almond milk chocolate variant is its best-known product. With yearly sales of more than €110 million, the company has expanded to become one of Greece’s 50 largest companies. 24.5 percent of the company’s interests were purchased by Kraft Jacobs Sushard (KJS) in 1988; the principal shareholders then bought them back in 1998.
