Since 1950 we have been baking with love. 

Our story begins three generations ago in a small bakery in Santorini. Manolis Karamolegos is introduced by his father to the art of baking and learns its secrets: from the selection of the raw ingredients to the creation of delicious recipes and finally to the production of bread products that have gained fame beyond the shores of the island. 

Today, we have the same love for what we bake, which sets the pace for all of us. Every day, we continue to combine this love with the latest nutritional trends and methods of production. We evolve with respect to our heritage, but also with a strong vision for the continuous improvement of our diet, starting always from its mainstay, bread. And always with a commitment to flavor and quality in everything we have to offer for your table! 


A small bakery 
opens in Santorini.

That’s how everything began. Ilias Karamolegos and his family create recipes that are loved by both locals and visitors to the island. Manolis and Maria, the family's children, help in the bakery, learning all the secrets of dough and the art of bread making. 



A new start 
in Athens.

With the earthquake of 1956, Santorini is deserted. The residents leave en masse and a few years later, so does the Karamolegos family. The family's luggage contains their grandfather's recipes and their love for his art. They settle in Agia Paraskevi and open a small bakery there. From the very first year, their products become a hit.

a baked goods company is born.

Over time, with much effort and perseverance, the bakery evolves into a baked goods company and acquires its current legal form under the name "Karamolegos Bakery Industry S.A.". Its products now arrive to super markets and other bakeries. In 1991, the baked good company is relocated to Koropi, where it is still located today. 

The first natural 
sourdough sliced bread.

Creating high quality products was the value that led Manolis Karamolegos to pair tradition with progress and create the first natural sourdough sliced bread. And he didn’t stop there. With passion and love, he continued to improve it so that today at Karamolegos, we produce and use in our recipes our own natural sourdough, cured for 56 hours.

a trip down memory lane.

Growing up in his father's bakery, Manolis Karamolegos learned to make bread and rusk. The family bakery was so famous that it even received orders from expats in America who wanted to enjoy its rusk. Seeking the flavors of his childhood, Manolis Karamolegos travels throughout Greece in order to offer the best rusks to Greek families. This is how Paxamas is born, bearing the name that the elders used for rusk.

Bread for special 
eating habits.

Lifestyles change and, along with them, so do eating habits and requirements. Karamolegos pioneers again, bringing to the market a new line of sliced bread with nutritional value and superior taste. So it’s "Psomi Xana (Bread again)" for those who have gone without it, the most delicious sliced bread with No Added Salt & Sugar, and also Protein, containing vegetable protein. 

Another idea that provides 
solutions: a base for peinirli.

A new product is added to the Axiagapites family: the sourdough peinirli base, fluffy and delicious, ready to be filled with every ingredient you crave. It was well loved from the beginning, thanks to its versatility, its convenience and of course its quality and taste.

No additives, no preservatives, from 100% natural raw ingredients, this is the promise we keep and implement for our main product lines.
