Kostantinos Iraklidis, who passed away in 1997, set up the company in 1965. The company, which is now in the hands of his sons, deals mainly with exports. It first started with vegetables & olives. A decade ago we started products stuffed with cheese and and since 2005 with preparing ready meals. Our specialization is the small packaging of all our product lines and specific orientation in super market sales. Our innovation is self-stable pasteurized ready meals, freshly looking, without a lot of sauce added and of course home made cooking.
The brand name ‘PICANTO’ was formed in 1989 for the reason that it refers to food with flavors that represent the company.
