The Production of Halawa "Helwe Beirut"



I have always been curious on how halaweh is made.Al Kanater, a family-owned operation invited me to visit their plant in Beirut, Mkalles. The father is the one who build this business, it has become very successful. The Al Kanater brand is seen in food shelves all over the world. I was offered a batch of their products and was really surprised to taste the difference. The process takes hard work and years of knowledge. Al Kanater works on abiding to international food standards, while keeping traditional manufacturing procedures. The sesame seeds are imported from Sudan due to their superior quality (as opposed to the Chinese variation). Watch this video, you will learn a lot! Thanks Mireille and Rony, we are counting on you to keep this business flourishing.
