Barrel Aging

After initial ripening, our artisan PDO Feta Cheese is aged in wooden barrels for a minimum of 3 months. The barrels are hand-crafted from beechwood in Metsovo, a traditional Greek mountain town in the Pindos area.


The aging process takes place in controlled temperature and humidity environment, achieving the texture and flavour that defines the uniqueness of our PDO Feta Cheese. The cheese is preserved in natural brine, and can be kept in refrigeration for a prolonged period of time, while it still matures but at a slower rate.

International Markets

From 1989, we export our Feta Cheese to the United States and from early 2000’s we export to Australia. We maintain presence in the Greek market, collaborating with delicatessens and selected stores.

We're Passionate About Quality

From the very start, we have been collecting local Greek sheep's and goats' milk, producing premium PDO Feta Cheese. Since then, we have been maintaining our traditional recipe, whilst standardising and enhancing our production quality through our modern facilties, built in 2002.

  • Our processes and quality control are certified in accordance to ISO 22000.
  • Our Feta Cheese is certified by Elgo Dimitra as a product of Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), under EU Law.
  • We have been approved by the US FDA via inspection of our facility and processes.

Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Feta Cheese is made from 100% Greek sheep’s and goat’s milk, and ripens in brine.

To be a PDO cheese, Feta must meet certain criteria:

  • To originate from mainland Greece and the island of Lesvos.
  • Only to be made from Greek sheep’s and goat’s milk, with sheep milk proportion of at least 70% and goat to a maximum of 30%.
  • To be made only from Greek sheep breeds, which feed on the local flora of each region, mainly in free range pastures.
  • To have a predefined minimum fat and a maximum moisture content.
  • To mature for at least 2 months in wooden barrels or tin cans.
