About Marathon Foods

MARATHON FOOD LTD, established since 1986, is a family run firm importing high quality food and drink from Cyprus, Greece and other Counties across the Mediterranean. In that time we have combined our friendly and neighbourly values with modern distribution and packaging processes to supply businesses across the U.K.

Our company mission since then has been to supply the finest products to U.K retailers and bring the Mediterranean way of life to the people.


With this in mind we launched our ANTHOS brand founded on three core principles:


Our products are sourced direct from the orchards, fields and farms of the Mediterranean. Only the highest quality pulses, crunchiest nuts, zestiest olives and finest cheeses will make it into our range.


Our products will compliment a balanced Mediterranean diet. Recognising people's shift towards healthy living, our mix of extra virgin olive oil, pulses, cereals, dried fruits and red wine, our products provide a great example of a heart healthy eating pattern.


Because we work directly with farms and farmers, who we have built relationships with over 25 years, we can deliver great value for money.

The Anthos brand is now well known for providing the finest Greek and Cypriot produce the Mediterranean has to offer. The range is expanding year by year and we are constantly trying to provide our customers with a wide variety of products at superb value.


At Marathon we also import brands and products that are in line with our company mission and values. These include:
