Illegal turkish halloumi all over Europe

Benefits and problems from the EU membership.

This whole thread is a fraud. Halloumi is not registerd.

GOVERNMENT efforts to register halloumi as a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) have been foiled before the file even made it as far as the European Commission, reports said yesterday

You can NOT sell it either by Halloumi or a different name (Hellim). It is patented and can only produced with a seal from the Republic of Cyprus. Read the EU laws. Otherwise what's the purpose of patenting something if someone else can reproduce it just by changing the name of it?
By the way, the word hellim was made up after 1974 for obvious reasons.
We can find the ways to sell our products for our living.


Thieves also make a living by stealing. What's your point? :roll:


on my birth certificate it says i was born at 1957.

we never used the word HALLOUMİ.
We always said and called HELLİM.

Hİ KİKAPU,
What are you called for ..................... ?


Hi Halil,

I just saw this tread. I agree with you Halil, that since childhood in Cyprus (from 1955) we always called it Hellim.

Can I go now sir..........please. :lol:

I have one question. Is it really true, that the "TRNC" produces 17 Thousand Tons of Hellim per year.??

That's 34 million pounds (in weight) of Hellim. Wow.!!

That is as much as the maximum takeoff weight of 34 Boeing 747-400's jumbo jets, fully loaded. Wow.!!

That's a lot of Hellim in the skies. :lol: :lol:

Kikapu that could be true since producers up to a few months ago, where getting subsidized 100% for the hellim they sold abroad. In the end the demand for milk was much more than the supply. They have now only recently stopped subsidizing so there probably will be a fall in production.

Hellim is also eaten in Turkey. When ever I visit my sister in Turkey, it is always available at breakfast time, just as it was available every morning at all the hotels we stayed last year in Cyprus.

The rest of the time, I do without. :cry:

Where would Tarhana soup will be, without fried Hellim bits in it. :D

If you can't meet the domestic demands, then why are you selling them to others. Perhaps it is cheaper importing them from Turkey.??

Kikapu,
Turkish people from Turkey learned the HELLİM after 74 . They like it , it is a very nice present to take HELLİM to Turkey. They will be very happy . That's what i do . Also They likes our Con Kahve.
There is a demand from Turkish markets from Turkey also from europe too . Speacialy from Germans. Germans calls it sguity cheese (may be wrong spell).
