“Twenty-eight years ago, we dreamt of producing a gourmet hummus that’s true to Eastern Mediterranean authentic taste. No compromise. No shortcuts. Hummus that’s exactly true to what we enjoy here in Amman-Jordan. Rich in tahini, velvety smooth, and with a basic recipe of all-natural ingredients,” said Salid Khaled Kasih, Chief Executive Officer of Mèzete and Kasih Foods Production. “We truly believed that with hard work, innovation, and true dedication, we would have a product that would win the admiration of consumers across the world. Today, we are humbled to have the chance to present Mèzete Hummus to Costco Canada East Region members.”

Building on over two decades of flavor and quality, Mèzete stays true to Eastern Mediterranean authentic taste

According to the release, Mèzete hummus is the culmination of two decades of extensive research and development, complemented by cutting-edge Ultra High Temperature (UHT) aseptic food processing technology that enables the products to sustain a long non-refrigerated shelf-life without artificial preservatives. After opening, Mèzete products can last up to three days in the fridge. Canadian consumers can now have fresh gourmet hummus on-hand with safe home pantry storage at ambient temperature, without the risk of spoilage.
