About us

Although Florina is a small town in the Greek northwestern border, it is renowned for the wonderful sweets prepared by Lazaros Veikos.

The tradition of L. Veikos began in 1933 when his grandfather Lazaros Veikos created the first workshop of sweets. His grandson L. Veikos, with plenty of patience, passion and love for his work, improved old recipes, created new ones and converted the making of sweets from a home-based employment into a small scale modern firm.

Since then, a long time has gone by and the firm of L. Veikos passed from generation to generation. We are now in the third generation and never stopped making sweets with the same traditional recipes, the same passion and love as our founder. However this is all that has stayed the same.

Our plant is one of the most modern available in the market and therefore ensures hygiene conditions in the production process and guarantees product quality.

We are a well-organized firm, which develops in all fields, following closely changes in the market and in technology.

The desserts are found in every Greek city. Demand is growing and people confirm daily their love in our traditional products which are manufactured with the most up to date production methods.
