At Odysea we believe that slow food is the necessary antidote to the restlessness of modern life.
It brings us together, feeds conversation, creates new traditions, new rituals, new stories.
Food is a way to get back in touch with the things that matter most.

About us

In 1991 Panos Manuelides embarked on bringing the delights of the Greek cuisine to the UK. He started out by selling premium Greek olives from a stall on Portobello Road, as it grew in popularity it soon became clear to Panos that there was a gap in the market for high quality authentic Greek products and so Odysea was born.

Our aim is to be the first choice and point of reference for Greek products. One of our fundamental strengths is the knowledge of Greek cuisine. Our goal is to maintain this expertise by continuous review of both our products and suppliers, whilst always focusing on our customers needs.

Odysea prides itself in supplying products of the highest quality. Members of our team have scoured the length and breadth of Greece in search of the finest local producers. This allows us to guarantee a degree of quality and authenticity that mass production and sourcing methods may fail to match.

As Odysea has evolved over the past 30 years so too has our award winning product range, from the truly authentic through to more contemporary flavours which have been inspired by traditional Greek & mediterranean recipes and are unique to Odysea.

We have tailored our extensive product range to meet the needs of a host of customers from leading restaurants, hotels and gastro-pubs to quality delicatessens, independent retailers and department store food halls.


A large number of products in our range have been awarded Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status. This is a geographical indication defined in EU law to protect regional foods. It acts as an assurance to our customers that they are purchasing a genuine, quality product.

We are constantly introducing new and exciting products. If you require any further information on these or any other product listed then please do not hesitate to contact a member of the sales team on 020 7608 1841 or email [email protected].
