The history of Alexakis pita bread goes back to the mid-1950s. It all began when Ilias Alexakis, the father of the present owner, started learning the traditional technique for making pita bread for souvlaki at a specialist bakery in the Piraeus suburb of Drapetsona.
Since then, the company has grown steadily, consistently increasing production and sales to become one of the foremost producers of pita bread in Greece, its name synonymous with commitment to quality.
In 2005, Alexakis moved to new, bigger premises, covering 1300 square metres, at the Menidi Industrial Park in Acharnes, putting the company in the perfect position to combine traditional values with a state-of-the-art production process.
In addition to the general modernisation of buildings and equipment, the company has put in place a certified food safety management system (HACCP-ELOT 1416:2000 and FAO/NHO CODEX ALIMENTARIUS), a certified quality system (ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 22000:2005), and a certified occupational health and safety system (ELOT 1801/OHSAS 18001).
