Local Products

Syros is known for its animal and dairy products. The famous local cheese is “San Michali”. It is a hard cheese and is produced exclusively in Syros by the co-operative milk factory. It is based on pasteurized cow’s milk. From 1996 it has been officially recognized as a product of name of origin. Exceptional “Kopanisti”, is also produced in Syros, which is made from fresh milk (cow primarily or a mix with sheep or goat milk) that has not been thermally treated. Syros produces the famous “maratholoukanika”. However, beyond all others, Syros is well-known for its sweets: chalvadopites and the famous "loukoumia" of Syros.
