Established in 1970, Pellito has been in the business of healthy and delicious nut-based snacking for over four decades.
As nut pioneers, Pellito introduced oil roasted and salted peanuts to Greece in the 1970s. Many will remember the iconic Mr. Pellito!
As leaders today, Pellito is famed not only for our irresistibly seasoned peanuts, but for our expanding line up of the most delicious seed and nut snacks. From perfectly Smoked Almonds and classic Peanut Butter, to fantastically crispy Mixed Sesame Bars and our innovative Minis and Bites, Pellito is your go-to for the pleasure of snacking.
With a passion for taste and quality, Pellito’s nutritious range of seasoned nut varieties and products are made of all-natural ingredients. We take an artisanal approach from sourcing to finish, ensuring the taste and quality of every ingredient we use – from nuts and seeds, to honey, to caramel and dried fruit – for snacking you can trust to be pure and simply delicious.
Pellito has remained a family owned and operated business since the beginning. Our unwavering pursuit of excellence drives our approach to everything we do.
We invest in training and excellence at every level. We are proud that our team is comprised of highly trained and passionate people, from trainees to the many people who have been with us for decades.
At Vamvalis we are proud to be SMETA, BRC and AIB certified. We believe acting ethically and responsibly is not only the right thing to do, but also the right thing to do for our business. Along with our 250 employees, Vamvalis conducts business responsibly, with integrity, honesty, and transparency.
Vamvalis Co. was established in the historic market district on Katouni Street in Thessaloniki, Greece in the 1960s where the family’s trading business had been operating since 1912.
Launching the Pellito brand in 1970, and through investment in technology and infrastructure, the business relocated to a new 2000 m2 facility in Kalohori, just outside of the city center, in the 1980s. With growing demand for the Pellito family of nuts and snacks, the company acquired its new and wholly owned private headquarters, increasing capacity to 5000m2, in the 1990s.
By 2010, we became one of the largest and leading manufacturers of nut and seed bars and snacks in Europe, always keeping our artisanal approach and best-in-class quality at the heart of our business.
Today, we continue to strive to stay at the top of our industry and we do not rest on our laurels. We continue to invest heavily in innovation, people, and quality, always delivering the very best for our customers around the world.
