Halva is a delicacy originating from Near East. It’s widespread in Turkey, Serbia, etc. and in Serbia it’s been around since the days of the Turkish rule. The name halva comes from the Arab word halava, meaning sweet.

Our halva is manufactured according to a recipe from the old masters, and up to code with the latest manufacturing standards. It’s characterized by high quality and we make it in four different flavors: vanilla, coco, peanut and hazelnut.

TAHINI (Sesame paste)
Tahini paste sole ingredient is ground and pulverized sesame seed. The name tahini comes from the Arab word “tahinija“, meaning ground or pulverized. Market names for tahini are different and on our market we usually find it under sesame paste, sesame butter, taan, tahan, etc.
The process of getting tahini from raw sesame to its final product consists of a few steps: washing, peeling, baking and grinding of sesame.
