Greek food brand Odysea is expanding its portfolio in the UK with the launch of three new dairy products: organic kefir, organic sheep’s milk yogurt and organic goat’s milk yogurt.
The kefir is made in Greece and is said to be “authentically tart” with a “creamy taste”. Odysea said the product is full of probiotics such as lactic acid bacteria, which aids digestion and reduces inflammation within the digestive system.
Meanwhile, both yogurts feature a layer of clotted yogurt, which the brand describes as “a true sign of a natural, non-homogenised yogurt”.
All three products are made in a traditional dairy, which is made up of a cooperative of 12 members and located in the Drama region of northern Greece.
Odysea said the dairy is committed to high animal welfare standards and cultivates its own organic seeds and greens to feed its herds.
Organic kefir has a recommended retail price of £1.95 for 330ml, the organic sheep’s milk yogurt costs £2.20 for 250g, while the organic goat’s milk yogurt retails for £2.20 for 240g.
Odysea has nurtured relationships with Greek artisan producers since 1991 when brand founder Panos Manuelides first brought Greek olives to the UK – selling them from a stall in London’s Portobello Road.
Now, 28 years later, the brand has products on sale in retailers such as Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Wholefoods and Abel & Cole.
