Demetra Organics was founded in 2016 out of a desire to promote a healthy, modern lifestyle supported by unique agricultural and artisan food products of Greece. Demetra Organics' name was inspired by Demeter (Δήμητρα in Greek) the ancient Greek goddess of the harvest. Our core driver is the support of local artisanal farmers and family businesses in Greece.
We currently offer the USA market authentic Greek artisan pita bread products handmade in Greece with natural healthy ingredients from Greece. Those include, ancient grain ZEA pita bread (whole-grain) and traditional pita bread (white). For the former, we use our exclusive ancient grain ZEA LIFE-GIVING (wheat tax. Triticum dicoccum) flour, which is produced by our growing community of local farmers. It is whole-milled and stone-ground, very low in gluten, high in dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals all attributed to Greece’s unique microclimate.
The ZEA wheat improved the health and well-being of the Greeks for thousands of years. They traded it at local markets, treasured it as a cultural secret and revered it as an ancient symbol of the bountiful harvest. Demetra Organics is dedicated to stimulating the local economy and providing a sustainable way of life to artisanal local farmers and family businesses who have been hit the hardest by the Greek economic crisis.
