Messinia

The area of Messinia, inhabited from ancient times until today, has numerous sites which convey the atmosphere of different periods – ancient, eloquently carved beehive tombs, settlement relics, ceramics, ancient palaces, cities and Byzantine castles. The beauty of Messinia has two ‘faces’ - on the one hand, there is, Taygetos mountain, stone walls, fig and prickly pear trees, olive trees, stone houses and vineyards, and on the other hand, there is the deep blue sea, sandy bays, fishing boats, and fishermen with their nets.Messinia is situated in the southwestern part of the Peloponnese, and in the southern part of Continental Greece. Messinia needs no introduction: Renowned throughout the world for its rich history and unsurpassed natural beauties, it spellbinds its visitors.

The capital of the Prefecture of Messinia is the lovely city of Kalamata. Built in the center of the Messinian Gulf’s coastal line, it accesses one of the most captivating beaches of Greece and is graced by 19th-century, architectural masterpieces. Messinian Mani is yet another area of the prefecture whose imposing tower houses draw the attention of visitors from around the world. Built at the foothills of Mount Taygetos (one of Greece’s tallest mountains), Messinian Mani has made a name for itself through its breathtaking and one-of-a-kind beauty, its abundant natural resources, and, last but not least, its superb local cuisine. The flavors of Messinia are part of Greece’s nutritional heritage. It couldn’t be otherwise: Messinia is a blessed land where tradition, in all its manifestations, comes first.

Kalamata Papadimitriou C.C. S.A.

Papadimitriou S.A., established in 1939 by Christos Papadimitriou in the area of Kalamata, is one of southern Greece’s three largest companies. Relying on their know-how, expertise, and drive, three generations of the Papadimitriou Family succeeded in designing and creating a range of innovative Mediterranean products. At the time of its establishment, the company was a small production facility active in the trading and export of local Kalamata products such as dried figs, Kalamata olives, and olive oil, which slowly but surely acquired a share of the market that kept growing. The goal of the Papadimitriou people at the time was the same with the goal the company team has today: Create premium quality, innovative products based on the nutritional tenets of the Mediterranean Diet. As time went by, the company continued to offer consumers innovative products based on the goods that the Peloponnesian land would yield. Today, after 75 years of operation, Papadimitriou S.A. offers a stunning range of products, each stamped with the philosophy behind Mediterranean nutrition and Greek cuisine. The company's state-of-the-art, seamlessly organized plant facilities are now located in Thouria, Messinia, on a total surface of 10,000 square meters. It is there that Papadimitriou S.A. produces and packages its retail and Food Service items for all of its product categories (mustards, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, currants).
