Peter, Anthony and Alex Boutsikakis, Village Batch
The journey of Village Batch started with 3 Brothers who grew up in Chicago with a close connection to their family in rural mainland Greece. Recognizing that the quality and authenticity of certain food products from Greece, namely extra virgin olive oil, was often lacking in the Chicago land region, they set out to do something about it. Village Batch was born with the idea to offer an affordable organic extra virgin olive oil from a single source, and a direct connection to the producers, giving it authenticity and un compromised quality. The company was officially created in 2012 and since then, they continue to source new product offerings for distribution. Whether it's organic olive oil, honey, or hand-harvested sea salt, the philosophy behind their product offerings never changes, exceptional foods that are honest, raw, and natural.
