Description

Twenty-five women from Mesotopos – Lesbos joined forces in 1998, and, using traditional recipes, they started bringing flavors of old to life, thus providing the public with forgotten tastes with a variety of products and local dishes.
The continuous effort and devotion of our members have turned our cooperative into a large, healthy business, housed in a beautiful 850 square meter building that includes certified cooking premises, a showroom for local products, offices, educational facilities, an event hall, and a parking lot.
Our cooperative is a unique gastronomic and cultural center in southwest Lesvos and is worth visiting for the hospitality and culinary experiences that unite people, bridging the past and the future.
