A family-owned company of Mediterranean origins, Lahmajou’s rise from honest, humble beginnings to become New Zealand’s largest specialised flatbread manufacturer and a major supplier to the New Zealand grocery industry is a tale of Kiwi ingenuity and authenticity. Giannis Michaelides set sail from Cyprus in 1966 and arrived in Christchurch with only the clothes on his back, a wonderful smile and a healthy appetite for leavened bread his mother had taught him to make.

With this kind of honest-to-goodness philosophy, Kiwi No. 8 wire mentality, and refusal to compromise the integrity of the products is fundamental to the way the family business continues to run in 2018.

27 years later and going from strength to strength, Giannis now has an extensive range of Pita Bread, Wraps, Pizza Bases, Tortilla and Naan bread products that are available on the New Zealand market. They have also recently launched a Gluten Free Pita Bread offering and will continue to bring innovation to the Pita Bread and flatbread category into 2019.

Ethnic Foods Ltd is the owner and producer of JABAL genuine Lebanese bread, one of the few truly authentic Middle Eastern bread types available in New Zealand. No preservatives or additives are used, and the bread is baked locally using only the very best natural raw materials that are available.

Vegan, dairy, soy, and additive-free, Jabal genuine Lebanese Bread is two layered flat bread which is the most common of the middle-eastern flatbreads and is distinguished from other varieties by its artisan appearance, flexibility, soft texture, taste and versatility.

The Jabal Lebanese bread products are produced using the traditional sheet/roller process allowing for a more “relaxed” product with a soft texture. While they bake Jabal Genuine Lebanese bread using modern specialised baking equipment, they have kept the centuries-old recipes passed down from the original Lebanese family who brought the bread to New Zealand 30 years ago.
