It was 2011 that we enthusiastically embarked on the journey that would turn our dream into reality. It all started with hummus! Having repeatedly visited the Middle East and succumbed to the lure of Israeli folk and food traditions, exploring the local culture and sampling the nation‘s cuisine, an idea began to get hold of Štěpán: I love Hummus. The project took shape as he interned at Israeli restaurants, encountered inspiring ﬁgures, and diligently studied manufacturing and marketing. A few months later, a small family-owned business was brought successfully on its way in the Czech Republic. Before long, Štěpán‘s 84-year-old grandma (who‘d been supporting the chickpea idea from its early days) needed backup at the hot plates, the pots and casseroles – and our call for help did not go unheard: today, our team of ardent hummus fans numbers 15 people. We want to give people the opportunity to eat well and feel better.
Balanced and at peace with the world – simply by providing a range of top-quality, tasty, full-value products. We also want to do our part in explaining to people how important recycling, and clean water, and renewable energies all are. We practice what we preach: we compost and separate waste and use our own water in production. Eventually, we want to switch to solar electricity. We cook with love and passion, we stand for earthbound, wholesome values, and we look forward to yet more chance encounters down the road, hoping that some of them may result in further culinary ideas which we will then bring to your table…
For months, we kept tinkering and modifying the recipe on a daily basis, mindful of the adage that amber doesn‘t exactly lie in the streets either: you got to dig for it. We homed in on the optimal ratio of ingredients, following traditional procedures and working exclusively with natural products, and shunned preservatives and other unnecessary additives. We scouted the most reliable suppliers, held sensory evaluations, and developed our proprietary processing technology... At long last, our very own recipe met and exceeded our expectations – which are not up for compromise. With love and care, we‘d created a chickpea product that wows folks in Israel and Czechia alike.
Our products have already made inroads into more than 600 retail stores all over the Czech Republic; we have also struck up a collaboration with a few of the big chains (Tesco, Makro, Globus, Ahold…). We supply restaurants and corporate clients – including foreign ones.
Our manufacturing process is HACCP-compliant and we hold an International Food Standards - Global Markets certiﬁcation. In 2017, we moved from Průhonice to Všechlapy near Divišov, where more spacious facilities have allowed us to push for the implementation of more audacious plans and grow our vision.
Our product portfolio, too, was prospering: alongside classic hummus, we boldly invented recipes for tomato hummus, hummus with caramelized onions, or hummus with black olives (the latter an especially refined treat!). Hummus is traditionally served with Arabic pitta bread and falafel. Don’t hesitate to include it in your healthy snacks (just with fresh vegetables, crackers, tortillas or sandwiches).
It is also a tasty friend for the main course (as an appetizer, as a base for your pizza or savoury pie, as a side dish with grilled vegetable or meat dishes, or as a gluten-free sauce additive).
Depending on your mood and opportunity, you can ﬂavour it with your own favourite ingredients (dried tomatoes, fresh herbs, chilli…). It simply is a balanced and versatile delicacy, you’ll love!
