Open your eyes. it says HELLİM not Halloumi .

Summer time is barbecue time – so how about a lip-smacking alternative to meat? For all barbecue lovers, this cheese is truly a welcome change in summer outdoors. GAZi Hellim is perfect not just for barbecuing, its unique texture makes it ideal for baking or pan frying – which means you can enjoy it throughout the year. This semi-solid cheese has 45% fat in dry matter and roughly 2% sodium. It is produced from cow’s milk embellished with bits of mint

halil,

I saw the same brand with the name Halloumi on it in a supermarket. So don't say bullshit before asking. Also, if you were smart enough you would see that in the first website it says:
Gazi Halloumi 43% 250g
[0104000]

and in the second the link ends in halloumi. :x

By the way what is the difference :roll:

tess,

It sure is delicious but that't not the issue here.

I don't think the actual recipe/method was "stolen" its just that you lot got there first in patenting the name - thats all.

have a look at the packetages .whats says on them.

with brand name Hellim , they can sell it . Turkish Cypriot products has got Hellim name on it. Also some of them in Cyprus has got both names on it .You have no idea about green line regulations .TC's products can have Hellim name.
Most of the Hellim prıducers in Northern part of the Cyprus .they makes Hellim for big Turkish supermarkets. Some of them has got supermarket names.
just another way for solution like Turkish delight and Yeresubi loukimi or what ever it is.

Don't forget that TC's were making Hellim for years and years.We have rights to sell our products. We are also selling these products under the Hellim name to middle east. TC's Hellim's are more cheaper than GC's ones.This is free market. They can buy from where they want it .
We are excisting in this planet. We can find the ways to sell our products for our living.

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:

Even if that is true, the law can not be broken at will.
