Alfa was the first company to manufacture filled phyllo-dough pastries based on traditional recipes from the northern Greek region of Kozani. Already at the top of its field in Greece, the company invests heavily in expanding its international markets and, building on the growing demand for Mediterranean foods across the Atlantic, Alfa plans a renewed push into North American markets this year.
Delicious Tradition, Award-Winning Innovation
Founded in 1965, Alfa has been providing consumers with first-class products that combine delicious traditional recipes and excellent production standards for almost fifty years. Its phyllo-dough pastries, crammed full of select ingredients from Greece and around the world, come packaged in award-winning baking trays, affording consumers a no-hassle experience of Kozani’s famous gastronomic traditions.
Leading the Market
Alfa quickly grew from its earliest incarnation as a one-man business to its current status as leading manufacturer of all-natural Greek pastries, puff-pastries, croissants and cookies for both retail and the catering industry. The company continues to expand its product range, and eighty percent of all new products introduced to the Greek retail market are launched by Alfa.
From Kozani, with Love
Alfa’s successful growth has seen its activity spread to international markets. Products like the famous, spiral-shaped “Kihi” pie are currently exported to thirty-two countries, and Alfa continues its efforts to bring these healthier, Mediterranean alternatives to fast-food to the rest of the world.

Alfa reinvents the filled, phyllo-dough pastry, combining a traditional family recipe with flavors from around the world. Products come with localized instructions and are packaged in award-winning baking trays that ensure hassle-free preparation and enjoyment of these delicious snacks.
