Artopoulos Pita Breads
ARTOPOULOS is a purely family business, which has been on the path of development for 30 years
Artopoulos Pita Breads was founded by Nikos and Stefanos Artopoulos about 30 years ago in Haidari, Attica, where it started with the production of traditional Lebanese and Arabic Pita Breads under the brand name "ZIK-ZAK". From then until today, the company has established itself in the field of bread making of traditional dough products, making it known for the taste and quality of the Pita Bread that it produces all over Greece. All these years our business activities have been focused on the production and distribution of high quality products with excellent taste and nutritional value.
1989 Nikolaos Artopoulos starts the production of Lebanese and Arabic Pita Breads in Haidari, under the trade name "ZIK - ZAK".
1993 Consumer acceptance leads to an increase in sales and, by extension, production activity. Relocation and investment in a new production line are becoming a reality.
2005 Due to the ever-increasing demand for the products, the ARTOPOULOU family invests in a new production unit and relocates to L. of Democracy in Acharnes Attica. In the same year, 2 new products are also launched – the Cypriot Pita Bread and the Arabic one with wholemeal flour.
