A LITTLE ABOUT US

MALEAS FOODS started out in 1923 when Georgios K. Damilakos decided to share the riches of Greek and Mediterranean nature with the world. Honouring our family tradition, our mission today is to produce, package and promote natural products with emphasis on the therapeutic power of plants, Greek cuisine and gastronomy, and a love of nature. Every day, our goal is to learn as much as possible about the traditional bounties of the Greek land and deliver them to consumers all over the world. Our business is guided by three core values: deep respect for the environment, appreciation for small and local producers, and genuine care for the end customer. We wish to appeal to health-conscious people who are in touch with nature and who wish to try unique natural products, while learning more about their properties.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe that a life in harmony with nature can be achieved to a large extent through nutrition, and we want to share this philosophy with as many people as possible! We think there's a need for constant interaction between each stage of the food supply chain. We want our customers to grow closer to food producers and not feel disconnected from what they're eating. We want them to know that they can visit the field it was grown in and plant the next crop! We want producers to taste the end product and recognise in it the qualities they themselves selected. We want transportation to have a low environmental impact and want reusable packaging materials to be returned to the production site. We want the people on the production line, with the love and care they have for the raw materials they are handling, to take pride in the end product and be the first to enjoy it with their families. We are constantly striving to realise our vision.

We want our customers to feel that they can visit the field which yielded the harvest and plant the next crop!

OUR HISTORY

Maleas honey, olives

In 1923 Georgios K. Damilakos established a business processing and marketing natural products – under the name MALEAS – in Gytheio in the southern Peloponnese. He traded in oil, olives and honey from the surrounding Mani Peninsula which he branded and exported to Egypt for more than half a century. His grandson, Georgios E. Damilakos, is an acupuncturist and a teacher of Traditional Chinese Medicine. A love of the same natural produce which his grandfather traded in, combined with the study of ancient texts on Nutrition and Natural Remedies, gave rise to the revival of the family business, enriching it with new information and references to holistic approaches. Our vision is to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to nourish themselves in line with the words of the ancient doctor considered to be the father of modern medicine:

Let food be thy medicine.
