The Vatika, the area which took its name from the ancient king Voias, is located on the south end of the Peloponese mainland of Greece.

For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Tom Varvaresos, owner and operator of Vatika Consulting.  Wiith 35 years of experience in the food industry, I have developed and continue to maintain connections and a passion for this industry. Vatika’s goal is to bring quality products from independent family-run businesses to independent food-service providers. We specialize in meats, poultry, coffee, sauces/dressings, and processed produce. In collaboration with other independent partners, we service eastern and southern Ontario and western Quebec (to Montreal).

My personal belief is that “great food makes for great gatherings”. It is this Old-World enthusiasm for natural excellence that I want to bring to others through my business. By providing only the finest quality products  to restaurants and family homes, I would like to provide “great food for great gatherings”, here in Ottawa and beyond.
