“Makedonikos Halvas” is still kneaded by hand &
made with the company’s high-quality “Makedoniko Tahini”!
It all started about a century ago when the Haitoglou family arrived in Thessaloniki from Minor Asia. The most valuable thing brought with them back then was not their belongings, but the love for family traditions & the secret family recipes utilizing the finest sesame, namely “Tahini” & “Halva”. It was then, in 1924, that they opened a small shop dedicated to creating their delicious halva by hand in small batches, continuing the craft their fathers & grandfathers had taught them. Throughout the years, many things changed, but the passion to create the best products, the legacy embodied in the family’s secret recipe & the symbol of the “woman from Thessaloniki” (a graceful female figure in a traditional Northern Greek costume that started as a symbol to help people identify their favourite halva & its origin at a time when many couldn’t read) or the “Halva Lady” as she became widely known remained the same.
Halva is a Mediterranean confection that combines excellent taste & high nutritional value. Its main ingredient is tahini which is 100% high-quality ground sesame seeds. Halva maintains all the beneficial nutrients of sesame seeds & is an excellent source of several valuable vitamins, proteins, antioxidants & trace elements. “Greek Halva with Vanilla” from “Haitoglou Bros” is a healthy & delicious snack that is ideally combined with cardamom & lime juice drops.
