Since 1950 we have been baking with love.
Our story begins three generations ago in a small bakery in Santorini. Manolis Karamolegos is introduced by his father to the art of baking and learns its secrets: from the selection of the raw ingredients to the creation of delicious recipes and finally to the production of bread products that have gained fame beyond the shores of the island.
Today, we have the same love for what we bake, which sets the pace for all of us. Every day, we continue to combine this love with the latest nutritional trends and methods of production. We evolve with respect to our heritage, but also with a strong vision for the continuous improvement of our diet, starting always from its mainstay, bread. And always with a commitment to flavor and quality in everything we have to offer for your table!
But let's take a look at how it all started.
A small bakery opens in Santorini.
That’s how everything began. Ilias Karamolegos and his family create recipes that are loved by both locals and visitors to the island. Manolis and Maria, the family's children, help in the bakery, learning all the secrets of dough and the art of bread making.
A new start in Athens.
With the earthquake of 1956, Santorini is deserted. The residents leave en masse and a few years later, so does the Karamolegos family. The family's luggage contains their grandfather's recipes and their love for his art. They settle in Agia Paraskevi and open a small bakery there. From the very first year, their products become a hit.
Karamolegos S.A., a baked goods company is born.
Over time, with much effort and perseverance, the bakery evolves into a baked goods company and acquires its current legal form under the name "Karamolegos Bakery Industry S.A.". Its products now arrive to super markets and other bakeries. In 1991, the baked good company is relocated to Koropi, where it is still located today.
Production is modernized.
Aiming to utilize the most cutting-edge technologies in the bakery industry, Karamolegos invests heavily in equipment and automates production using closed robotic machinery.
Deka - a modern brand with innovative packaging.
The brand "Deka" is created, with a youthful, modern design, but also with an intense flavor that promises an exceptional experience in taste. With unique ingredients for the era, such as chia seeds, and special packaging, "Deka" retains its flavor up to the last fluffy slice.
Clean label: A new era in bread.
Always with a sense of responsibility towards the consumer. Karamolegos once again revolutionizes the market by being the first to bring the Clean Label to packaged bread. No additives, no preservatives, from 100% natural raw ingredients, this is the promise we keep and implement for our main product lines. Having a clean label is no longer a trend, it is now a production standard and a demand from consumers themselves!
