JANNIS S.A. was founded in 1965, in Thessaloniki. Our company was one of the first large-scale producers of Sesame bars in Greece. Jannis products were made in cauldrons by craftsmen with absolute care, as they embedded tradition in the manufacturing process. Sesame bar, or pasteli as it is known in Greece, is a traditional Greek confection with documented origins in antiquity. Homer and Herodotus spoke of the snack in the Iliad and other scripts since the 8th and 5th centuries BC. Throughout the ages, our beloved sesame bar continues to be not only a sweet snack but also a natural source of energy, due to the high nutritional value of its two key ingredients: sesame and honey.
