Meet the producer

 

In 1969, Ghiorgos Martavaltzoglou, an Asia Minor refugee, sets up a bakery in his home village, Aravissos, Giannitsa, next to the

archaeological site of Pella, where he makes bread and traditional pies.

With a view to ensuring the quality of the raw materials used in the bakery, a few years later, in 1974, the second generation puts up a

flour mill which grinds top-quality flour.

In 1980, the modest mill grows into a traditional food cottage industry exclusively producing foodstuff from processed grains (hulled wheat, bulgur and wheat trahana), using traditional production and conservation methods. In the years to come, consumers’ trust and a rapidly increasing demand spurred the company into expanding to include the production of pasta – hilopites (Greek egg noodles), flour trahana, couscous etc.

The third generation is gradually taking over at the helm of the family business transferring production to the premises of a brand new factory equipped with state-of-the-art technology according to the ISO 22000 standards.
