In 1936, a unique journey begins full of passion and taste.

It is great to grow up comprehending a passion for beauty and care reflecting in every detail all around you; on your plate, in the oven pans, in the backyard where your grandmother used to pack apple geranium, in the tray with the glasses of cool water prepared by your dairy maid grandfather for the thirsty passers-by, in the tasting test of each batch. It’s great luck to have such a legacy!

Today, Maria, Stergios, Alexis, and Agnes are expanding the family business and lead the Biscotti Tsoungari team, leveraging the business heritage and values ​​that it was built upon: having faith in quality, gratitude, originality, and hard work.
