Achva | Pure Tahini from Israel
Achva - The Story
In 1929, when new immigrants from Turkey, Greece and Russia came together in a small factory in Tel Aviv, Israel and each came with their own knowledge, methods and skills of producing tahini and oil. For this gathering, the name “Achva” was born meaning brotherhood in Hebrew.
Three years later, the first mayor of Tel Aviv, Meir Dizengoff, named the street in which the factory was located under the factory name.
No more salt!
As part of the developing health trends, the factory decided to separate from the traditional methods and the rest of the tahini manufactures and stop using salt in the products. The result was that the Achva Tahini became more healthy and attractive without harming the flavour and quality.
