Lifestyle changes over the last few decades have been both a blessing and a curse. On the plus side, we can celebrate vastly increased life expectancy. Unfortunately, improved access to processed foods and more sedentary living have also resulted in growing rates of diabetes, leading to demand for home blood glucose testing equipment. 77 Elektronika Kft. responded to this need and pioneered blood glucose meters for the Hungarian market. This remains among its key products today, which also include urine analyzers and consumables.
Around the world, rice is one of the most important crops. Especially in Asian countries, it is a staple and therefore the nutritional basis for a big part of the world’s population. As a matter of fact, the largest portion of the rice produced worldwide comes from Asia as well as from the USA being one of the main exporters. Nevertheless, in the EU rice production is also gaining momentum, and not just because ‘gluten-free’ is the buzzword of the day. Within the circle of the traditional rice-producing countries in Europe like Italy, Spain and France, ‘newcomer’ Hungary supplies the EU markets with top-quality rice – 50% of which comes from Nagykun 2000 Mezőgazdasági Zrt. in Kisújszállás.

For good reason the company was awarded the International Diamond Star for Quality.
Csepel is a district of Budapest located at the northern end of Csepel Island on the Danube river. For many decades, the area was a center of Hungarian machine tool manufacturing. After the fall of the Iron Curtain, many factories had to shut down. One that has survived and developed is Excel Csepel Kft. The secret of the company’s success lies in its distinct focus on special-purpose machine tools that are not easily available anywhere else.
