Feréikos is based in Ancient Corinth in a small land that our beloved grandfather Dimitris owned was founded in 2007 by two sisters Maria and Penny Vlachou. After devoting years in their studies and having pursued international careers, they decided to return to Greece and invest themselves, heart and soul, in Feréikos. Being both primarily philologists and residing in an ancient Greek city, what’s better than an ancient Greek word for their company’s name? Feréikos derives from “fero”, to carry, and “ikos” house, which when combined, translates literally as “I carry my own house”, an apt description of the snail.
Feréikos manages from end to end the snail production process, from the first soil analysis of the snail farm through its production until its delicious taste reaches your palate. We oversee the global development of snail farming by providing education and know-how coming from over 12 years’ experience in the industry. We collaborate with several prestigious entities and universities globally and we share our knowledge with more than 289 farmers globally. On our premises, we create innovative products based on traditional and healthy Mediterranean recipes. We provide the possibility for snail farmers to process and package their own snails. We also provide processing and packaging services on our premises for olives, olive pate, honey, herbs, marmalades, desserts, and more. All of our products are free of preservatives and colorants, and maintain the highest quality standards. Our motto is “Home Sweet Home” because just like the snail, we all know there is no place like home.
