OUR HISTORY

1926

1926. The history of Divani cheese factory starts thanks to the instinct of Athanasios Gravanis, a peddler from Samarina. Collecting fresh milk from the villages around, he establishes the first cheese factory of the family at Mavreli of Trikala.

1965

1965. The kasseri cheese that is produced becomes known to the whole area for its special taste and it takes off. His son, but mostly his grandchildren – Christos and Alekos- develop his idea, creating an innovative cheese product plant at Agia Moni of Trikala.

2005

2005. The only thing that has not changed through the decades is the faith in tradition. The company “Thessaliko Trikalon S.A.”, with the distinctive title “Divanis”, keeps its legendary course in its new state-of-the-art premises. With modern production lines and quality control certifications (ISO 9001:2015, FSCC 22000) it is specialized on the “50-50” semi-soft cheese (proportion of milk: 50% sheep’s and goat’s, 50% cow’s milk).
