A new Anglo-Greek Food Company
Pure from Mount Olympus
Traditional, all-organic foods and wines produced directly by The Monks and the community of the St. Dionysios Monastery. Being a free from pestices and non polluted conservation area, some of the worlds best honey is produced here. Our privileged partnership with these unique people has become the foundation of Mt. Olympus Pure Foods.
Anestis Babatzimopoulos is possibly the most charismatic, patriotic, passionate and articulate winemaker in the Greek industry. He dedicated his life to building and cultivating his eco farm with winery and distillery on 600 acres of organic land. Here he produces the most extraordinary spirits and wines, still following the ancient traditions and skills passed down by his ancestors.
How it all began - Our story...
On the same mountain trails that were once used by the ancient Greeks, 3 men who were trekking together, discovered they shared a connection with both the land and its history...
Food Manifesto -Our Beliefs
It’s said that “you are what you eat”. Well, whilst that’s true, it’s not the complete truth.
If you share an affinity, a connection with the land and the people who nurture and harvest that food, if you appreciate the history of the traditions and values that are reflected in its simple purity and healthy goodness – then the quality and taste are enhanced, by that deeper appreciation of the timeless contact with ancient culture and values.

Large Food Corporates and globalization are weakening the local economy. Small communities are being destroyed. At Mount Olympus Pure Foods, we strive to support local communities in the beautiful, still unspoilt areas around the Mountain that is the “Home of the Gods” , so that they can be strengthened again. We love what we do and we believe that by doing so heritage food systems will be preserved.
