Zalatimo Sweets Co

Company Overview
Zalatimo Sweets Company started over a century ago, as a small pastry shop in ?Jerusalem, Palestine in 1860. The idea was conceived when Mohammad Zalatimo ?decided to set up a small pastry shop in the old city of Jerusalem to make a popular ?Arabic pastry "Mutabak". Initially, the operation was a small one, where he offered ?Mutabak as a take-away product for breakfast, in addition to a few specialty sweets ?that were made daily by him. In the years to come, the pastry shop proved to be very ?successful; he rented an adjacent shop and offered a seating area for his customers to ?enjoy his freshly made sweets within the ancient walls surrounding the Roman ?Church of the Holy Sepulcher.? This was over a century ago. The Zalatimo name throughout the region became ?synonymous with excellence, quality and authenticity in all Arabic Sweets and ?Pastries. After having established a strong brand name in Palestine and the region as ?the best Arabic sweets chefs, the need to expand into neighboring markets became ?evident.? In 1986 the first Zalatimo Sweets Shop was established in Amman, Jordan. It was an ?immediate success, accessible to anyone from the region and internationally. This ?move opened the doors for Zalatimo Sweets to expand and grow to where it is now, a ?brand name which is synonymous with quality, authentic Arabic sweets, and pastries ?throughout the region and the world.?
