The story behind Terpsi
What brings all of us -the Terpsi team- together, is that we were born and raised in Greece.
Our childhood was full of light, sea and sky blue colour, natural beauties, tastes and smells. As we were growing up, we started feeling the presence of a long-lasting tradition and a history which goes back centuries. This tradition is built around mother earth and the presents that this uniquely gifted land lavishes on humanity.
For some of us, especially the ones who lived most of our lives away from big cities, many things were being taken as granted. Our families and social circles were doing everything possible so that we could enjoy the best that nature could give. Often, people among our families, or even ourselves were involved in the cultivation of all these goods that were necessary for our growing up and well-being.
And we grew up! We now had to get independent and live away from our families and home places. We moved to bigger cities to study Business Administration, Marketing, Engineering, Architecture and many more. The time that plenty of us had to leave our country, ‘chasing the dream’ at an era when it was suffering from the consequences of the economic recession, had arrived.
When we were leaving Greece, we knew that we would miss a lot of things and mainly our families and friends. But we could never imagine the extend up to which we would miss the tastes and smells of our childhood. We were just starting to realise the value of these things and whenever we tried to reach goods originated from our country, we got disappointed. In most of the cases, these goods did not have either the quality or the price that we desired and had known in Greece.
Then, we started thinking that it might be worth trying to promote and offer these goods abroad, at their original quality and a fair price. The way in which this could be achieved was a major concern and it is almost certain by now, that each one of us alone would have never made it. However, lady luck shined to us and our paths crossed. It did not take us a lot of time or consideration, since we were on the same page in terms of thoughts and experiences. After all, we all had one more thing in common: our roots. We shook hands and started working.
And this is how Terpsi was born…
