    This page has a single aim.
     
    To promote the produce of the Greek land and the small Greek producer who alone struggles along, equipped only with his zeal. To provide a forum to small units that most of the time find it hard to see their products reaching the SUPERMARKET shelves. And, as we are not racists, to promote good quality products of large industries.

    This page is not for advertising. The choise is quite personal and subjective. I have become aware of a number of of these products in my travels throughout Greece and have used them in cooking.

    This page will be supplemented on a regular basis. Full producer details are given to you for one and only one purpose. To look for these products locally, at the place where they are produced; To look for them on Supermarket shelves; To look for them in modern grocery shops that, thank heaven, are being established throughout Greece and giving the floor to smaller producers and "own label products".
