EXTRA VIRGIN FOODS • REAL GREEK FOOD

ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE AND
HOW IT ALL STARTED

Extra Virgin Foods is a manufacturer and importer of Greek foods, and was founded in 2011 by Paul Hatziiliades, but our roots stretch back two generations when Paul’s grandfather was marketing Olympic brand Greek foods in Greece following WWII.

Paul wanted to offer the wholesome and real flavor found in the bounty of Greek foods to the USA consumer. Yet the challenge is Greek food companies are nearly all small mom and pop producers, who are not able to export to the US. Thus Americans don’t have access to Greek food products like they do Italian and other foods.


GREEK FOOD IS THE NEXT BIG THING IN FOOD RETAILING, GREEK YOGURT IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG


Extra Virgin foods works with smaller quality producers, to bring their products to the US. In 2014 the company acquired its artisan cheese producer in northern Greece and now produces its own PDO Feta cheese, with the same family of cheesemakers managing the production.
