Talianis S.A., one of the oldest companies in Greece, has been supplying the domestic market for more than 120 years with a variety of products.
Our company’s history begins in 1885 when Dimitrios Talianis, an olive oil trader, came to Heraklion Crete from Constantinople to find new suppliers of olive oil for the family business.
Five years later, in 1890 he founded the "HOUSE OF DEMETRE E. TALIANIS". In parallel with olive oil trading he also started the business of processing aromatic plants and carob milling to export them all over Europe.
In 1940 his sons Michalis and Efstratios succeeded their father and expanded the exports in USA, Canada and Japan.
Since 1992 the company is named "TALIANIS S.A." and with Manolis Talianis as managing director, moved in its new modern premises in the industrial area of Heraklion. Soon our firm assumed a leading role in the exports of aromatic herbs to all the countries of the European Union, Switzerland, Japan and particularly to the USA.
Since May 2004, to support its effort to grow and improve TALIANIS S.A. moved to Malades Heraklion in a modern proprietary distribution centre 4,000 sq. m.
In 2008 TALIANIS S.A. took a major decision and expanded in new and unknown, at the time, markets. Essentially, we turned from exporters to importers, aiming at developing a diverse product range to address market needs.
Presently, in parallel with the exports, benefiting from the valued experience gained from the exports and the strong network acquired through them, TALIANIS S.A. imports various product categories aiming at responding to the needs of the domestic market.
Dimitris Talianis first visits Iraklion Crete to find new olive oil suppliers for the family business in Constantinople.
