How much are those dog-breeders getting paid to go round all the threads posting stupid remarks? :?

.... all the Turk-TCs do a grand job of stupid remarks for free, from what they claim! :lol:

with brand name Hellim , they can sell it .


I repeat once more: I saw it in a supermarket with the name Gazi Halloumi on it.
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,
don't you know that everymoring 40000 Turkish Troops eats Hellim at their breakfast .
Also more than 15000 students from Turkey also they eats Hellim.

İt's mean everday Kikapu.Those numbers must not confuse you . Do your calculation and see it . Demand is not enough ......Tones of cheese we are buying from out side as well.
HELLİM.......HELLİM ......... no one cares about Lokum........... But we do care about our HELLİM......... :lol: :lol: :lol:


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.??


Unfortunately, Trahana is now illegal as per EU. Our grandmothers have gone underground. :lol:


Illegal :?: ....I had a couple of bowls last night with oodles and oodles of halloumi...went down well... 8) :lol:

This is not how we do things in this part of the world rose. Here we even object to a name a country wants to assume. Like halloumi cheese, a country name is trade marked.

Pork Pies

To obtain real protection for the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie, so that consumers know they are getting the authentic product, we have applied to the European Commission to recognise the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie as a "Protected Geographical Indication".

What does "Protected Geographical Indication" (PGI) mean?

Since 1993, the European Union (EU) has provided a framework that gives legal protection for named regional food products against imitation across the EU. This framework is important because it aims to protect and promote regional food products, the consumer interest and rural economies that become vulnerable as the EU expands and regional markets move to national and international supply chains.

Ho, ho, ho, ho, how I laughed at all this nonsense. It's hellim & halloumi, dunderheads !

Sis Kebab = souvlaki
Doner = gyron
Dolma = dolmadakia (or however you write it)
Raki = ouzo

I could go on and on.................

I guess 400 or so years of Turkish rule has influenced the people of the Hellenes and her diaspora ! :lol:
