About Ambrosial Granola: The company was founded by Anastasia Makoulis at a turning point of her professional career in the nonprofit sector. However, the true origins go back to Greece where Anastasia was born and raised with the rich Mediterranean diet. Influenced by the healthy food movement early on, she could not compromise to use the highly processed sugary breakfast cereals to raise her two children when she became a mother. The home-made granola came to life.
Today, headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, the name of the brand signifies the quality of its offerings and its Mediterranean origin. Ambrosia was the food of the Gods living atop Mount Olympus according to Greek mythology. The pure, nutritious and delicious granola and muesli cereals are all USDA certified organic and Kosher supervised. They are available to the retail and food-service trade on the East Coast, Midwest and nationally online through the company’s website http://www.ambrosialgranola.com.
