The Greek Life
For thousands of years, Greek cuisine has been built around two ideas: the freshest possible ingredients and simple preparation.
That tradition has been at the center of FAGE since our founding in 1926. And it’s the key reason why Greek cooking is considered one of the healthiest diets in the world.
Blessed with a Mediterranean climate, rich soil and abundant seafood, Greece is known worldwide for food that is both fresh and flavorful – from a simple salad of cucumbers, tomato and feta (Horiatiki), to the unmistakable taste and smell of grilled lamb chops (Paidakia), to the creamy flavor of Greek yogurt with honey (Yiaourti me Meli). In fact, it was Archestratos who wrote the first cookbook in history in 330 B.C.
FAGE Total is proud to be part of that Greek heritage, offering you a thick, healthy and authentic taste with every bite. That’s because FAGE Total isn’t Greek-style yogurt. It is Greek yogurt, made by the same Greek family and with the same family recipe for 85 years. It’s a cornerstone of the Greek diet. Read more.
Of course, when you enjoy FAGE Total, you’re taking part in another Greek tradition – celebrating “good living.”
Part of Greek culture for thousands of years, “good living” combines good food and fine taste for a life filled with positive health and well-being. The idea originated with Plato and the ancient philosophers, and it’s as vibrant now as ever. Even today, when you sit down at any Greek table, the first order of business is to raise your glass and toast all present with a robust “to your health!”
So when you enjoy FAGE Total, you’re enjoying more than great-tasting, nutritious, all-natural Greek yogurt. You’re enjoying a tradition and lifestyle that dates back thousands of years., one we’re proud to call our own and pleased to share with you.
As we say in Greece, “Stinygiasou!” (To your health!)
