In 1870, on the olive tree - rich, Greek island of Lesvos, Dimitris Papoutsanis set out to build the first steam engine powered olive oil pressing factory. That factory wasn’t made just tο produce olive oil of the finest quality... A small portion of this humble yet precious ingredient, was kept to produce pure olive oil soap.
This marked the birth of a Company with a history of more than 140 years...
In 1913 the production facilities were transferred to Piraeus where the first production-line bar soap was made.
The company enlisted in the Athens Stock Exchange in 1972.
In February 2001, Papoutsanis continuous growth brought the opening of its newest, state of the art, factory near Athens...The largest soap production plant in Eastern Europe and the largest hotel amenities provider in Greece.
