Greek Golden Groves is not just another Greek company offering excellent Greek food. It is a place housing the dreams and love for quality products of four young people, who finally decided to turn their passion into vocation. The values and passion of these four is the yeast for the "recipe" called G3 foods. A "recipe" with a strong personality, just like Greek food at a Sunday table; with all the family gathered around. Their career paths crossed, common interests made them friends and their love for Greek food and olive oil led them to make a life-changing decision.

The food is a huge part of the diet, yes, but don’t overlook the other ways the Mediterraneans life their lives. When they sit down for a meal, they don’t sit in front of a television or eat in a rush; they sit down for a relaxed, leisurely meal with others, which may be just as important for your health as what’s on your plate.
