Catagories: Food

Our experienced, multinational staff of Flavorists, Chemists, Microbiologists, Food Scientists and Engineers combine our region's diversity of ingredients and cuisines with modern food technology to develop truly exquisite flavors of the highest quality.

Οriginally we made tailor-made tastes for Greek customers, basically replacing imported seasonings with our own, lower cost versions. In most cases we not only matched but actually improved on the target product, bringing it more in line with our customer's taste expectations. Now we have an extensive range of standard products as well as continuing to tailor-make formulations to each customer's needs.
We ship anywhere from 100 kilograms to multiple container loads.
Our offices are in Kalamaki - on the Athens water front. Our plants are in Glyca Nera, northeast of Athens.
Greece offers both historically and geographically an unparallelled fusion of food cultures. Here Asia and Africa meet Europe. Classic recipes described by Aristophanes evolved through Roman extragavance to Byzantine elegance. Persians, Arabs, Ottomans, Venetians, Genoese, Egyptians, Armenians and Slavs have all contributed significantly to Greek cuisine. And more recently tourists and Greek restaurants from America and Western Europe have helped modernize our culinary experience.
Biotrek is the center of a region, from Moldavia to Ethiopia, that offers an amazing wealth of important flavor ingredients. This has given us a significant cost and freshness advantage with certain raw materials.
