Marathasa valley has long been known as the place where traditional soujoukkos is made at its best. Women from the villages of Marathasa are proud for their art of making soujoukkos, an art that has historically been passed from mother to daughter. At the village of Oikos in Marathasa, just 1 km off the main Nicosia-Pedhoulas road, Mr Christakis and his wife Mrs Chryso have been making soujoukkos for more than two decades. Since the early 1990s they run a small rural workshop producing a range of traditional products with soujoukkos being their flagship item. In making soujoukkos, they maintain traditional processes and use grape juice that is extracted from the indigenous varieties of mavro and xynisteri. Grapes are procured from local vine growers and occasionally from as far as Arsos, in the Limassol wine villages District.
