Ergon Foods


Ergon is the Greek word for vocation, the process of passionate work, and the sense of accomplishment that follows it. They chose that word to reflect who they really are; a network of small, independent, honest, food artisans. They traveled across Greece’s mountains, valleys, lakes, and islands to find them.

Those local artisans choose to remain true to their tradition and craft real food products following history-tested processes. It is their responsibility to nurture them by modernizing, protecting, and promoting their honest work – their Ergon.

Their first step was the start of a family business in Thessaloniki (with three generations’ worth of experience in the food sector), with the goal of promoting unique Greek products. In dealing with different farmers and producers from all over Greece, they realized there was a need to establish one unifying brand, that would guarantee the overall quality of a broad and diverse product range.

So, that’s what the two brothers from Thessaloniki, Thomas and George Douzis have decided to do. To create a range of fine quality products, under a brand that could ensure that traditional Greek produce meets the 21st-century standards.

Ergon's goal is to promote Greek gastronomy, both in Greece and abroad. Their vision is to become the global food brand associated with high-quality, premium, Greek food products, culinary culture, and cuisine.
