The company Pierroutsakos Original Tastes was founded in 2012 in ancient Sikyon, near Corinth, Greece. The founders, Dimitris Pierroutsakos and Christina Palamara started producing organic fruits and vegetables in their own orchards, certified by DIO (the country’s major certification body).
After a series of reinvestments, the company launched a series of products, combining organic agriculture with traditional tastes and recipes of Greece.
The Greek market, despite the crisis, has embraced our products warmly, while exports have started in the year 2017.
Our facilities allow us to produce 2,000 units per day at the current state. A further growth is imminent.
Organic Petimezi (Grape Molasses) – Pierroutsakos Original Tastes
Produced by boiling pure, fresh grape juice, in enormous vats, for hours, if not days, until about only a fifth of the original liquid remains. Petimezi, the healthiest sweetener in the world, is rich in antioxidants, vitamins A and B, minerals, potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium.
It is commonly used in Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. The most common being to flavour “Mustokouloura” grape-must cookies, seen in all bakeries and patisseries at the time of the grape harvest, delicious, spicy, dark cookies, with rather a gingery flavour.
Petimezi can also be used to marinate meat or for salad dressings.
