The Mediterranean diet is one of the most ancient forms of dietetic pattern ever expressed and analyzed. The diet emphasizes eating foods like fish, fruits, vegetables, beans, high-fiber breads, whole grains, and olive oil on a daily basis. Pita bread is a staple of the Mediterranean diet through the centuries.
We have been baking pita flatbreads in Astoria, NY since the beginning of "Mediterranean Pita" in 1964! Every day our bakers use the highest quality ingredients and employ artisan craftsmanship to deliver the best traditional pita breads that have become our trademark. Our commitment to these high standards has made us the quality leader of our industry.
In 1997, we partnered with Corfu Foods, a leading manufacturer of Gyro meat products based in Chicago, Illinois. Our two companies, offer complementing product lines to our combined clientele. This has enabled us to be a one stop shop – directly from the source.
In 2006 the company took the next step forward. Applying the same high standards we use for everything we produce, we sought out and partnered with some of the most reputable manufacturers from around the world. As a result, we created new product lines with retail store sale applications.
Our company’s greatest asset is its people. Each one of our key associates has a minimum of 18 years experience, and is highly skilled in their specific area of responsibility. All have a very detailed and intimate awareness of our company’s capabilities, our culture and the expectations of our customers.
The Ancient Greeks grew olives, grapes, figs and wheat and kept goats, for milk and cheese. They atelots of bread, beans and olives. In the Summer months there were plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables to eat and in the winter they ate dried fruit and food they had stored like apples and lentils.
Today in Greece most people still eat wholesome foods similar to their ancestors. Fresh fruits and vegetables play a large role in the Greek diet. With its long coastline, Greece also relies heavily on fish and seafood. Meat is often used as an ingredient in vegetable dishes instead of as a main dish. The islands and coastal areas of Greece favor lighter dishes that feature vegetables or seafood. In contrast, the inland regions use more meat and cheese in their cooking.
