About Teskos

Teskos is a small enterprise producing various sweets on Ikaria. The company is family owned and has a long tradition. Long time ago the grandfather of the today’s owner was travelling on his merchant boat across the islands and the coast of Asia Minor. He took and brought goods, learning the habits and lifestyles of other people. In 1950 he wrecked at Milos. When he was saved he came to Ikaria and decided to leave the sea for good. The legend says, that times later the grandfather remembered a recipe … a specific one, which we will not tell you here, but it was a good one and still is. So the grandfather set up the cauldron and a short time later, the first “Delight” was created. Since then – and that means for 3 generations now – the family is producing on the basis of the traditional recipes sweets, authentic delights, handmade vanilla, original gum, sour cherry juice and homemade marmalade. Perhaps this is the secret of their success-story: the passion and the loyality to the tradition.

We are very happy that Teskos is supporting our events since 2016, not only bringing its products to the “Ikarian Days” in Brussel, but by also contributing to our cooking.

Women’s Cooperative, Raches - Ikaria

About the “Women’s cooperative”:

The first women’s cooperative on Ikaria – “Taste of Ikaria” - was founded in 2009 in Christos Raches by 11 women. We worked on a volunteer basis with the aim of producing high quality products based on agricultural products Mother Nature has given us on Ikaria. In this context we are dedicating ourselves to preserving the local tradition and to producing foods without any chemical substances, such as marmalades, chutneys, “spoon sweets” and pickled vegetables. We purchase the raw materials from the small producers on the island, who are following the philosophy of sustainable and organic farming. In this way, we are not only providing an incentive for expanding traditional farming on Ikaria, but we are also generating a steady income for farmers and their families. In the meantime, we have already grown, and since 2011 we have been managing a cake shop and a small café, where we sell our products. At the moment, we offer permanent jobs to seven women and we employ an additional three women during the summer on a temporary basis.

And we have a nice little coffee shop, where we are offering our freshly and homemade cakes, cookies, pies and ice creams.You find us in the Platia of Christos Raches, in the Northern part of Ikaria.

L’histoire commerciale de la famille Angelopoulos commence en 1965.

Vlassios ANGELOPOULOS, le fondateur, entreprit d’importer  pour la toute première fois à Bruxelles quelques produits qui sans revêtir une quelconque  nécessité vitale, permettaient de rappeler aux premiers expatriés  grecs leur pays qui leur manquait tant.

Au fil du temps, la demande s’est précisée et l’offre de produits d’une petite épicerie s’est transformée en véritable gamme complète qui permettait de subvenir à tous les besoins d’une famille mais aussi à lancer les premiers restaurants grecs. Le nombre de ces derniers a véritablement explosé et la gamme s’est étoffée de plus en plus.

Les vins commencèrent à prendre une place importante dans l’assortiment de cette petite société et Vlassios ANGELOPOULOS décida donc de nouer une collaboration durable avec son ami Evangelos  TSANTALIS dont les vins et les spiritueux étaient de plus en plus prisés en Grèce. Le domaine TSANTALI est actuellement, et de loin, le plus grand en Grèce.
