The owner of one of the largest Greek food importers in North America is the buyer of two units at One Thousand Museum, property records show.

Eric Moscahlaidis, owner of Krinos Foods, paid about $13 million for units 5601 and 5602 in August through 1000 Museum 5601 LLC. Moscahlaidis’ identity was unknown at the time, but he recently signed a $5.5 million mortgage from HSBC Bank for the units.

Krinos, based in New York, imports and produces Greek and other Mediterannean foods including cheese, dips, olive oil, pastas, pickled vegetables and more. The company was founded in the 1980s by Eric’s father, John Moschalaidis. In addition to other brands it owns, Krinos acquired Hellas International in 2004.

Eric Moscahlaidis likely purchased a combined unit at the downtown Miami condo tower.
