Rest assured that when you buy one of our Artisans' products, you support a small business with big dreams. Our small producers work in a very challenging economic environment, yet make it a point of pride to produce a truly premium, small-batch, all-natural product. Scroll down to find out how we choose them and why we are so proud of them.
At Zelos, our aspiration has always been to create a platform where these carefully selected Greek Artisans can become the protagonists of their own stories. Their work allows us to experience the authentic tastes of modern Greece from afar.
We chose to support small-batch Artisans who met three criteria:
We work zealously with our Artisans to bring their products to the US and assist them in any way we can, be it regulatory, design, branding strategy or marketing. Most of all we enjoy lending them a hand to tell their compelling stories.
We are proud of all our Artisans. They represent the best this small, fascinating country called Greece has to offer.
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. Meet Agrozimi...Shop Agrozimi
We chose Citrus for the way they have exalted the rare variety of Chian Mandarin, a PGI product, and for the passion they bring to all of their exclusive small-batch products. We love that we can help the team bring the rich history of the Greek island of Chios into a more contemporary, dynamic present here in the States. Meet Citrus...Shop Citrus
At the heart of Elli & Manos is the creativity & drive of owner Elli Nikolaou, whose belief in the intense, all-natural ﬂavors of Greece had us sold from the start of our Zelos journey. We applaud her for going outside her comfort zone to change careers and pursue her entrepreneurial culinary dream against all odds. Meet Elli & Manos...Shop Elli & Manos
We were impressed that founder Philippe Poli could bring the best of his Italian-Swiss-Greek heritage to create such a striking and flavorful premium olive oil. A true olive oil connoisseur, Philippe has invested in top quality assurance and classic aesthetic design to create an exceptional organic extra virgin olive oil that we knew we had to have.
