Its name “kalathaki” means a “basket” and it comes from the shape that the cheese gets when left to mature inside knitted wicker baskets for about 60 days.

Among the very few producers that now make this cheese is Dabizas, a three-generation family-owned company founded in 1946 in Halkidiki. Dabizas’ kalathaki is a high quality, delicious cheese brought to you in a tasteful, design package.
