Elysian was established in 2000 by Basil and Martha Yiannoutsous, working out of their well-known Deli in Miramar. Due to the high demand for Basil’s Taramasalata, he began making it in small batches and distributing it to supermarkets and deli’s all over the country. The Elysian range of hand crafted products now includes Taramasalata, Tzatziki and marinated olives.

In 2017, after 20 years serving retail in Miramar, Basil and Martha have sold the business to the new owner, Toby Green. Elysian Foods Ltd has moved up the road (Park Road in Miramar, that is) into a bigger space with a brand new production kitchen and warehouse.
