The Soul of Crete was established in 2015 and prides itself on bringing the finest Greek inspired produce to Ireland. A Taste of Greece right here in Ireland. The idea for the chocolate tahini came about whilst trying to source a healthier alternative to chocolate spread for our son who was a big fan of one of the leading brand names in chocolate spread. Our Chocolate Flavoured Tahini spread is truly an innovative product. It is a natural alternative to leading brand names in chocolate spread – it contains only 1.5 teaspoons of brown sugar per jar, is gluten free, dairy free and suitable for vegans. Our second product – our plain tahini has become just as popular in recent months and we pride ourselves on being the only Irish producer of Tahini in Ireland. It is perfect for making hummus or can be used in savoury sauces, stir-frys, salads or even eaten straight from the jar!
Based on research carried out we have seen that the dietary requirements of Irish consumers has changed dramatically. We have married the flavours of Greece and the benefits of the Mediterranean diet to suit the changing dietary requirements of Irish consumers. There is a big emphasis now on choosing food products which have a healthy impact on consumer’s lifestyle. Our Tahini is produced in Fenagh, Co. Carlow located at the foothills of Mount Leinster. Our traditional family recipes have travelled all the way from the hills of Northern Greece, especially for our customers to enjoy.
