Our company

Papadeas Vinegar

Our company, Papadeas PC, is a family owned business, with long-term experience and expertise in vinegar production.

Papadeas PC was established in 1975 by Panagiotis Papadeas, who was a traditional vinegar brewer, one of the first in Peloponnese. He started by producing his own type of vinegar in wooden barrels by using as raw material multiple types of wine by local vineyards in Kalamata, Greece.

In 1984, Dionisios Papadeas takes over the company, as a successor, and his main concern is the modernization of company’s facilities.

In 1994, our facilities were transferred in a new large area in the Industrial area of Kalamata. A brand new, fully-equipped vinegar plant was built and dramatically increased production capacity. The old wooden barrels were replaced by new inox containers and acidifiers of cutting-edge technology.  Finally, the pursuit of international markets began and Messino products travelled across Europe.
