Our story

The history of “the Manna” Tsatsaronakis Cretan products is an unusual one. It is interwoven with tradition, passion and a very real insistence on the authentic taste and pure ingredients from the land of the island of Crete. The company continues to evolve by linking, at group level, inventive production and tourism to “from the farm to the table for visitors”.

It is the story of a company that started from the village of Platanos in Chania, Crete, and managed to distribute packaged rusk products throughout the Greek and international markets.

It is a story about the Tsatsaronakis family, which since 1948 has “kneaded” the flavour that accompanies our everyday life, taking care of the diet and the society that surrounds it. Travel with us on the most delicious story: the history of “the Manna” Tsatsaronaki, the “Manna of the Greeks” and the entire world.

Our philosophy

Our philosophy is based on combining tradition with the principles and dynamics of modern nutrition. Our cultural and nutritional heritage supplies us with healthy simple, high quality raw materials where the emphasis is placed on the use of excellent good olive oil and fibre rich products. The principles of the modern diet dictate the reduced use of salt, avoiding sugar and saturated fat. We keep track of relevant global developments and facilitate people’s everyday lives with exciting flavours, adaptive packaging and clearly labelled information.

At the same time, we consciously promote Cretan and Mediterranean flavours as we have been kneading traditional Cretan rusks for decades. Our rusks hide all the delicacy and magic of the Cretan and Mediterranean diet. Our belief in tradition, the purest ingredients and our family’s love for what we do have made us courageous as we look to the future to continue to offer what we know well …. The excellent quality and taste of “the Manna” Tsatsaronaki products.
