Hannah International Foods is the culmination of a life-long dream of its founder, George Hanna. George along with his parents, Ibrahim & Layla, came to the USA from Lebanon. When they noticed that there was no traditional Lebanese cuisine in local supermarkets, they decided to create a business to start manufacturing and distributing Hommus and other Mediterranean Food products to grocery store chains in New England. In the early 1980’s, George and his father, Ibrahim, along with his brother, founded Cedar’s Mediterranean Foods. As Cedar’s business started to blossom, George decided to branch out and focus on the growing Club store segment of the business. Hannah International Foods, Inc. was formed in 1993 and began introducing larger size tubs to Price club and eventually Costco. George focused on taking his family recipes to build a Mediterranean category at Costco. Initial products included Hommus, Taboule, Bruschetta, Tzatziki, and other healthy dips and salads.
