Daphnis and Chloe was established in a small workshop right under the Acropolis Hill of Athens in 2013. Inspired by the Mediterranean’s natural bounty and rural traditions, we provide professional chefs and homecooks with culinary herbs & spices that are just as stunning as nature has spontaneously decided.
It is because of our sun, soil and sea that Greek oregano can contain up to 30 times more essential oils than the ones typically found on supermarket shelves. Thanks to their geographical distribution and microclimatic diversity, our remote mountains and islands are home to more than 5,000 varieties of plants, many of them endemic. This herbal richness allows us to source local varieties of Mediterranean culinary herbs from the areas where they naturally perform better.
Right after nature comes craftsmanship: Every plant has a unique character and gives its best only when respected. Our herbs are rigorously handpicked and processed with non-invasive artisanal methods, in order to maintain their unique taste and fragrance all the way to your kitchen. This process becomes possible thanks to our suppliers, who are far more than farmers. Putting quality above quantity, they are loversand connauseurs of nature’s will and circles.
