Al Arz Tahini was founded in 1992 as a small Christian Arab family business in Nazareth, Israel. The company was founded by Assad Zaher. His wife Julie and daughter Lana took over the family business after his passing and continue to win awards and praise from both chefs and home cooks for the flavor of their tahini. They start with the best quality sesame seeds and work to preserve the sweetness and aroma of the sesame seeds without using chemical processes. You can buy their Tahini anywhere in Israel, or online for international distribution.
