In 1882

Mahmoud Al Yaman started a small sweets factory to offer high quality traditional Lebanese foods for Sidon and its neighboring regions. With the motivation of our highly skilled staff together with making use of the best and latest technologies, our factories are able to produce the best Halawa, Turkish delights, and Tahini in all of Lebanon. Our great grandfather Mahmoud Al-Yaman was at the helm of its beginnings, and had a clear vision for the forthcoming future.

History of our factories.


In its early beginnings, Al-Yaman started as a small factory with its supply and testing coming from a small laboratory. Mahmoud Al-Yaman was very well known for his popular and very tasty sweets. At that time, all sweets he was producing from halawa, tahini, to Turkish delights were all handmade and sold mainly to Sidon and nearby villages.


With the rapid technological advancements and the increase in demand on our very popular products, it was no longer feasible to keep on our hand making production. By using state of the art technologies and foreign consultations, we inaugurated our state of the art factory responsible for the full production of the best Halawa, Tahini & Turkish delights on the market.


After his retirement, Mahmoud Al-Yaman passed the torch and full control to his sons Samih Al Yaman and his sons. His sons who were already trained and had already worked a lot with their father, continued to excel in their father’s tradition. They had a vision of their own and wanted to diversify the company’s product line, and expand their business to reach all Lebanon.


With machinery involved and now that the production process is fully automated, we were one of the first sweet production facilities to obtain an ISO 9001 for high quality management of food safety. Our factory was a pioneering marvel at the time, contributing immensely to our future success…


To strive to be a premier food company, offering superior tasting and high quality Middle Eastern food products to people around the globe. We will continue to further diversify our product lineup and offer various new type of traditional sweets. Our current products awareness is also important, as we need to continue stressing the fact that is our premium quality offerings and 100% natural ingredients.
