Tahini & Olive Oil

We are an Irish company bringing the Taste of Greece to Carlow! We pride ourselves on sourcing premium Greek products to suit the Irish Market. You can find us at our weekly farmers markets in Portlaoise every Friday and every Saturday at Carlow Farmers Market.

Our Chocolate Flavoured Tahini is one of a kind in Ireland. It is the first healthy alternative to chocolate spread and is a superb alternative to the leading brand names in chocolate spread. It is full of nutritional benefits such as High in Fibre, a great Source of Protein and Low in Sugar. With only 6 grams of sugar used per jar it is perfect for kids. It is Ireland’s first healthy alternative to mass produced chocolate spread and it based on a traditional family Greek recipe. Our tahini is an Irish product and produced in Co. Carlow.

No palm oil is used and with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives you can be sure only the best ingredients go into our product. Our tahini is gluten free, diary free and suitable for vegans.

We are also Ireland’s first producers of plain tahini which is used in salad dressings, savoury sauces or as a dip.

We have a wide range of Greek products some of which  include our award winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil ‘Oleum’. Oleum is one of the only award winning Extra Virgin Oilive Oil currently available in Ireland with more than 20 Global Taste awards.
