Over our years in business, we have been developing everyone’s favorite pita bread for souvlaki into an authentic taste experience.
From 1952, in Grandad George Kaloidas’ original workshop, right up to the ELVIART KALOIDAS S.A. industrial unit in Aspropyrgos today, we have always invested great care and attention in every pita bread we make.
This is how we achieved our dynamic presence in the industry and a more than 55% share in the Greek market. Since 1982, we have steadily expanded our activities abroad and we supply dozens of countries with Greek pita bread.
With expertise as our inheritance, our consistently high quality products as our allies and our wish to provide you with delicacies as our motivation, we do not see producing pita breads as merely following a recipe, but rather as creating quality food every day.
We are certified by the relevant bodies for the Food Safety Management System in accordance with ISO 22000: 2005, ISO 22000:2018, IFS and HALAL, which are based on the HACCP principles. These certified systems are applied by our scientific staff, with rigorous checks being undertaken on all production lines to ensure full hygiene, safety and quality for our products.
So, with the help of our staff, we achieve our aim every day … our aim to meet your needs!
Our staff are systematically trained in safety and hygiene issues, both to ensure we produce quality products and to ensure they are fully protected.
In addition, we constantly invest in our staff’s knowledge. As part of this, we are always on the lookout for fresh ideas, shapes, flavours and uses for our products. We employ testing and research, so we can develop our products and create innovative new types of pita bread which meet the needs of the wholesale, retail and souvlaki restaurant markets.
