If you were to travel all over Greece, crisscrossing it from coast to coast – east, west, north and south – you’d be astounded by the abundance of exceptional foods and the unique traditional products that you’ll discover. The best and most distinctive have been classified by the EU as PDO – Protected Designation of Origin – which means that no other place has the right to claim these products.
The list is constantly growing, while maintaining rigourous standards. Among these Greek products, some regions stand out but so too do some notable producers, who have been careful stewards of the land of their birth. Let’s look at them one by one to see what makes them so special, what gives them their authenticity and unique identity.
