In order for Cyprus and the EU to force Australia not using the name, they need to file in the Australian Federal Courts and convince the judge.

Unlikely that the Australian courts are going to agree with you.

And secondly, I go to a cheese wholesaler who sells literally hundreds of Australian made cheeses.

I’m talking about Greek, Italian, French you name it. A smorgasbord that spans te entire globe. It doesn’t seem to be an issue with all the other cheeses.

And I can’t see the issue with calling it Halloumi.

So yeh, good luck!

Mits not as if Australia will stop production and buy Cypriot made. If they stocked the Cypriot made Halloumi it just would sell as well. Australians will just try once and ditch in the bin. No comparison to Australian Halloumi. Just too salty. As I said, probably because of all the preservative, nothing else.

Ours comes straight from the farm into our factories and on the shelf the next day. Fresh and tasty. So bound to be a lot better as a result.

Plus our farmers keep up to date with latest best practices

In addition to all that there are literally a few dozen Australian made varieties of Halloumi. The stuff can be found everywhere.

And some of the varieties are made by Cypriots in Australia who supply the big supermarket chains.

So in actual fact, some of it is Cypriot Australian made.

So it’s not going to fly I’m afraid.

Now ponder this. Let’s say Bambos, an Australian Cypriot is manufacturing Halloumi in Australia. How the hell can you stop Bambos from making a cheese from his native homeland and calling it Halloumi.

Just sounds absurd to me.

Fact is this. There are indeed Australian making Halloumi. Australians are among the most highly educated people in terms of their culinary diversity. Fact is, if you want good food, forget Italy and France, come to Australia. We are mikes ahead of Europe and America. We are blessed over year. We are talking about a country that has a wine industry that is the envy of France. The French come here and collaborate and what we produce is world class.

Forcing the Aussies to change the name but Cypriots? Come on!

Sorry but can’t see the issue here.

We’ve got to the point here we’re the average Aussie is able to name a dozen foreign cheeses. And when they do, they actually revere the country of origin and say things like “oh Halloumi. Cheese from Cyprus that squeaks and which tastes great off the Barby”

I got an Aussie friend neirghbour I helped build for him a fourno. That’s how developed things have become in Australia.

I gave him the Kleftico recipe and he cooked Kleftico. He calls it by its real name too - Kleftico.

Was invited over for dinner and it was delicious,

The question is, where does it all end.

Australua manufactures spaghetti and pasta as well and call it such. It does say on the packets, product of Australia but they bear the original Italian naming conventions. To an Aussie, all they are doing is making Spaghetti. And Italian food. They always say it’s Italian. Or we are eating Italian. But it’s Australian made. Must they change the name of that too?

Rant all you want. It’s part of your trade deal with the EU. The only Halloumi you’ll see in Australia will have been made on the Republic of Cyprus.

Dream on DT.

As if bloody if, mate.

No chance in friggin hell Australia would sign a trade deal that forbids Australians from producing Halloumi when there is clearly a market for the locally produced stuff. No way in hell would we touch the Halloumi that is imported from Cyprus. It literally tastes like shit.

If Australia stops producing, I stop eating Halloumi.

But I won’t be losing any sleep because Australia won’t stop producing Halloumi, Fetta abd hundreds of other cheeses it produces.

We are a primary producer. And make more Halloumi than Cyprus does so careful otherwise we may take Kikapus advice and flood the EU market with Squeeky cheese. :lol:

Btw, this trade deal is news to me. Right now Australia and EU are having a big bitches spat on vaccines. :lol:

Finally ending in us shit canning Astra Zeneca. Now there is a billion dollar industry now destroyed.

if you think only Hellim/Hallumi is produced in Cyprus, it is time you woke up some.

Here is a Bulgarian Grill Cheese just bot named Hellim/Hallumi.

"Grilling Cheese", i like it. Halloumi, sold in an array of other cheeses of this genre makes sense.

Mine always seems to come out like melting rubber. There has to be a knack. Cypriot genetics? :(
