About Yiayia & Friends

Yiayia & Friends is part of the Hellenic Farms lineup of premium Greek foods. Hellenic Farms was founded by Vivianna Karamanis.

From Vivianna:
"Our journey into all things Greek began when I decided to leave my hectic life in New York City and follow my heart to Greece. Coming from a lineage of foodies: my paternal grandfather owned the only bodega in the village of Armolia, Xios where surrounding villagers would come to shop, and my maternal grandparents were and still are Mastic farmers, a unique natural resin that only grows on the island of Xios, I always knew that really good, all-natural, traditional food existed in Greece, after all it is where democracy, philosophy & the Olympics began! I have always found it challenging to find great Greek foods at the local grocer, so in 2013 I decided that I would make it my mission to reintroduce the American table to Hellenic products of excellence!"
