Zorba Delicacies Ltd – Ebbw Vale
In 1976 Robert Babakian, a Greek-Cypriot national living in North London, noticed that Houmous was not widely available. Recognising the increasing demand for the product and quick to spot a business opportunity, he decided to create his own Houmous dip made from a traditional Greek-Cypriot recipe. Zorba Delicacies Limited was born.
In 1996, Zorba Delicacies was purchased by private investors and in 1998, a new factory was built in South Wales to allow for product range expansion. From humble beginnings, Zorba Delicacies has grown into a multi-million-pound manufacturer of dips, deli fillers and soups.
