  • Description:
    The Cypriot company, founded in 2018, is a general trading company.
    Apart from the trading sector, the company deals with other activities, such as the provision of consultancy services and the operation of restaurants.
    The Cypriot company is interested in expanding its business in the export sector and particularly by exporting halloumi cheese from Cyprus mainly to the UK and other EU countries through retailers (supermarkets), wholesalers, etc.

    The company cooperates with Cypriot producing companies of dairy products, which have very long experience in the market and are accredited with the following certificates:
    - Dairy plant operation license issued by the Veterinary Services of the Ministry of Agriculture
    - HACCP for production, packaging and distribution of cheese products.
    The manufacturing companies are chosen as partners by the Cypriot company based on the following criteria: the suitability of their facilities, their production methods, the stability of the products’ quality, the reliability and responsiveness, the delivery commitments as well as their experience in the production of dairy products.

    Halloumi cheese is the most popular Cypriot cheese product. It is a semi-hard, un-ripened, brined, chewy white cheese made from a mixture of cow as well as sheep and goat milk or entirely from sheep and goat milk.
    Halloumi cheese is baked at high temperatures. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled.
    Halloumi cheese can also replace another dairy or protein product of a balanced diet.

    Variations of the original halloumi recipe can also be offered (for example low fat, gluten free, spicy etc) according to the clients’ requirements.

    The packaging can be customized according to customer's needs, for example:
    - individual portion sealed airtight with a little brine
    - cut into sticks
    - round-shaped (for burgers)
    - in brine in various container sizes (small and large)
    The package contains all the information required by legislation such as: ingredients, weight, expiration date, nutrition information (energy, calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein)

    The storage temperature of the halloumi cheese varies from 0-6 celsius degrees.
    The shelf-life of the product is one year.

    The company has its own brand, but it can also offer private labelling based on the clients’ requirements.

    The Cypriot company as a start-up company is looking for opportunities to grow. It is interested in finding trade intermediary services abroad in order to strengthen its network and export the halloumi cheese product to the UK and other EU countries. The company is looking for partners to act as agents and distributors in the framework of commercial agency and distribution services agreements.
