Barilla Hellas A.E. known by its domestic trade name Misko (Greek: Μίσκο), is a Greek company, owned by Italian Barilla Group, that produces and sells pasta in Greece. It also serves other parts of the world, particularly the Greek diaspora.[citation needed]

Misko, now the largest pasta producer in Greece, was founded in Piraeus in 1927 and was acquired by Barilla in 1991, selling Barilla's pasta and sauces along its own product line-up. In 2000 the company built a new production facility in Boeotia which is the third largest in Europe.[1]

[edit]

The current logo was introduced in the late 1990s and features the durum wheat. The color of Misko packaging is magenta.
