Description

COMPANY

The Siafarikas dairy and cheese company was founded in 1930. The business started by collecting and processing milk from five small, but well-organized farms in villages on the Pindos mountain range, producing butter and kaseri cheese. The company was relocated in 1975 to a fully-equipped production plant in the prefecture of Grevena. The collaborating farmers breed their flocks in the valleys of Pindos, and, using the latest technology, produce goat and sheep milk of the finest quality.
