ATHENS – The special ‘Easter Basket,’ offering traditional Easter foods at lower or unchanged prices, will be in effect from April 24 to May 4. Additionally, from April 22 to May 4, the ‘Basket of Godparents’ will also be available.

According to an announcement by the Ministry of Development, the ‘Easter Basket’ extends the ‘Household Basket’ by adding four new food categories, providing consumers with an additional option.

Minister of Development Kostas Skrekas stated: “We actively support households to ensure that every family table is fully stocked with essential goods at low prices. Initiatives such as the ‘Easter Basket’ enhance competition among food businesses, benefiting consumers. Through the ‘Basket of Godparents,’ we provide support to godparents and parents, allowing them to purchase quality toys at affordable prices and bring joy to all children during these festive days. Assistance and relief for all citizens, especially the most vulnerable, are priorities for the government and the Ministry of Development.”
