As every country has its own traditional culinary speciality, Cyprus is renowned for its Halloumi cheese. For centuries now, Halloumi is being prepared according to a traditional recipe, passed on from generation to generation. Halloumi is a registered trademark as a Cyprus product indicating that it can only be produced in Cyprus.

Halloumi consists of a mixture of goat or sheep milk and cow milk its special characteristics include its unique folded shape as well as the fresh mint leaves added. Consumers appreciate its unique character in flavour, aroma, texture and versatile character, as it may well be eaten raw but also cooked, fried or grilled. Whichever the method of cooking, Halloumi retains its shape, with it outward appearance turning into a golden brown colour, while its inside texture softens significantly but does not melt. 

Halloumi is nowadays produced in technologically advanced dairy industries approved and registered according to EU Regulations. Dairy industries are also certified with the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and enforce the ISO, a quality system ensuring maximum quality and hygiene.

Today Halloumi is consumed in over 40 countries, in all 5 continents. Its exports are steadily growing as a result of increased penetration in existing markets and with the introduction of new international markets. Exports of Halloumi to the United Kingdom only in 2016 were valued at over £50 million.
