George Stefos and his family grew up on the shores of the lagoon of Messolonghi - Etoliko/Aitoliko and learned the art bottarga near local traditional fishermen.

For decades "bottarga Stefos", based on traditional homemade recipe, was known to a small circle of locals who appreciated and enjoyed it as a tasty and nutritious daily food but also as valuable festive treat.


In 2008, along with his children and a group of experienced food technologists and experts in product promotion founded our company based in Etoliko/Aitoliko, and envisioned a way to share with the world the unique products of the lagoon, marrying tradition with innovation.

The company built groundbreaking, for Greece and maybe for the whole world, facilities for processing, packaging and promoting the products of open sea, the lagoon and of aquaculture.

Every product that leaves our factory, is a special ambassador who travels to every corner on earth, to introduce consumers to a unique tasty journey.


Our vision is to create an exquisite selection of bottarga and lagoon products worthy of appreciation by connoisseurs around the globe.

Our philosophy is to use the most pure, fresh and natural materials, produce high quality products, offer high services to our customers, be reliable, honor our employees and respect the environment.

Our goal is to expand at a robust pace while remaining faithful to our philosophy and vision.


Our company owns a 3,000 sq. m. plot next to the town of Etoliko/Aitoliko, with a state-of-the-art installation, equipped with the most up-to-date, innovative equipment.
The installation of processing and packaging of the fish roe and other products has been designed in full accordance with the ISO 22000 – HACCP TÜV NORD food safety management standards.

It is a unique investment of its kind in Greece and Europe, and will soon be further developed with dedicated premises for presentations and tasting events.
