Our label "the greek pantry"!
Our label represents the very best that Greece can offer, born out of our passion for authentic Greek cuisine!
The Greek cuisine offers a rich and diverse array of foods and beverages that are the result of thousands of years of living, cooking and eating.
Greece is a nation of small farmers producing an incredible assortment of naturally produced cheeses, oils, fruits, nuts, grains, legumes and vegetables, supplemented by a variety of greens and herbs that grow in the wild.
The climate of Greece is perfect for growing olive and lemon trees, which produce two of the most important elements of Greek cooking, olives and lemons. Spices, garlic and other herbs such as oregano, basil, mint and thyme are widely used, as are vegetables such as eggplant and zucchini and, legumes of all types.
For Greece, with its beautiful islands and with no part of its mainland more than 150 kilometers from the sea, fish and seafood are a popular and common part of the daily cuisine as well. Poultry, beef, and pork are also in plentiful supply, with lamb and goat (kid) being the traditional meats for holidays and festivals.
Vineyards cover much of the mountainous terrain of Greece and the country has become known for its variety of fine wines and spirits, most notably ouzo, an anise-flavored alcoholic beverage that is the national spirit.
They are the foods that form the base of traditional Greek cuisine, which has been universally recognized as a fundamental and essential part of the Mediterranean diet.
We have used as a trade name the basic “the greek pantry”, due to the very nature of the Greek cuisine, which is positioned at the base of the Mediterranean diet.
The colors selected represent those naturally found on the mainland of Greece and the surrounding islands: the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea, the glistening white of the foaming waves, the orangey yellow of the dazzling sun, set against a backdrop of intertwining Greek Ionic style spirals and other geometrical designs.
The horizontal stripes below, depending on the colors used, define the group to which any one product under “the greek pantry” label belongs.
We aim to create a range of quality food products that will encompass a large variety of items representative of the Greek cuisine and the Mediterranean diet.
True to our mission, we are selecting products made with the purest ingredients, offering them in attractive packaging and marketing them at affordable prices.
