Classic Greek orzo takes on a robust twist thanks to the full nutty flavor of spelt flour (triticum spelta or dinkel). A long-ago ancestor of today’s commercial wheat, spelt is more easily digested than common wheat, since its gluten has more water-soluble proteins, and it’s higher in protein than typical pasta. Spelt is also an excellent source of vitamins & minerals.
Agrozimi is a third-generation family business that makes pasta with a long and slow process - top-quality flour is kneaded with no added salt, mixed with the fresh spring water from the northern Greek village of Arávissoss, and then shaped through bronze dies. They slowly air-dry the pasta at low temperatures to retain its unmatched flavor and nutritional value. Try spelt orzo for a tasty accompaniment to any tomato-based dish or in your favorite soup. Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants.
For the discerning pasta lover, Agrozimi offers products that recapture forgotten traditional ways and add experimental new flavors.
We love spelt kritharáki as a more robust alternative to rice and a perfect base for your favorite vegan dishes. The 500gr. package translates to 1.1lbs., 10% more than the standard pasta packs. While there is a suggested cooking time on the pack, try it for yourself and cook to taste, especially if you like your pasta “al dente”. The unique shape gives a firm texture unlike mass-produced orzo.
Looking for a recipe for your spelt kritharaki? You’ll find one on the inside of the label or simply toss your cooked pasta with one of Elli & Manos’ Greek Flavor Bursts. Here’s one more for an easy stovetop shrimp youvetsi.

We chose Agrozimi for brothers Kostas and Yiorgos Martavaltzoglou’s love of tradition, while still daring to experiment with flavors and techniques. We were also impressed by their state-of-the-art facility and commitment to high-quality product standards, all that show in their exceptional pasta.Read Their Story
