Matis Halva A story from distant East to Trikala today

In 1885, Athanasios Matis, along with some fellow citizens from Amarantos in Trikala, moves to Aivali in Asia Minor seeking a better life. There he starts working in a halva workshop, where he discovers all the secrets behind the craft of halva-making. Thirteen years later, he returns back to Trikala and opens a grocery store in the center of the city. Meanwhile, he starts producing small amounts of halva in an underdeveloped factory adjacent to the grocery store, which are sold in his store.
In 1929, the halva workshop is updated and the first steam boiler is obtained. As production grows, the product is also sold outside Trikala. Then, the first export sale to Australia follows.
Today, the company has been handed to the 4th generation of the family. Halva is found in the shelves of super-markets all over Greece and is exported to 11 countries: Australia, USA, France, Germany, Spain, G. Britain, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Malta and Jordan.
