For all of us who want to convert even the simplest meal to a taste feast! 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.
