According to the Ancient Greek mythology, cheese was discovered by Aristaeus, the son of Cyrene and Apollo. Cheese was quoted for the first time in Human History in Greek scripts of the 8th century BC
Greek cheeses are one of the pillars of the Mediterranean diet in Greece, recognized worldwide as perhaps the healthiest way to eat.
Greek cheeses are among the finest in the world. Most varieties have been protected under the European Union’s Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) provisions. This makes them unique in the world, because no other nation can use the name of a particular cheese as these cheeses meet traditional processing and location-of-origin standards. Some are more commonly known than others.
