Company History

Pasta has been a staple in Ancient Greek cuisine thousands of  years before Marco Polo’s exploration to Asia, having a significant affect on Mediterranean diet. Ancient Greeks prepared a dish from pasta dough called zimarika, meaning a dough of flour and water, cut into long strips, named laganon. The company EVOIKI ZIMI SA was established in 1984 in the small Greek town of Psachna Evia. At the time, this family owned business was known for the production of traditional pastas, made using traditional homemade recipes and only the finest ingredients.

During the 90’s, Evoiki Zimi expanded its activities to the production of frozen dough products and transferred to owned facilities at Κastella, Euboea in Central Greece. In 2004, Zimi expanded further production to new facilities in the district of Dokos Chalkida.

Today, Evoiki Zimi under the brand names “Zimi Psahnon” and “Zimarika Psahnon” exports their authentic frozen dough product lines across 30 countries worldwide, from Australia to America.
