Our company

​Kőröstej Ltd. – Hungary’s Leading Cheese Producer

We at Kőröstej Ltd. are, above all, producers of cheese. We are one of the leading producers of Kashkaval cheese in the world, but we are also producers of over a hundred different kinds of cheese, from Hungarian Trappist and Parenyica, to Middle Eastern Labneh and Chilal, to worldwide cheeses like Grill cheeses and processed cheeses.

But we are also inventors of cheeses not found anywhere else: to name just two examples, there is "Traboulsi" cheese, named after Tripoli, the hometown of the company owner, or indeed "Hungarian Labneh", bringing a new, European twist to the Middle Eastern classic.

We think our rich, varied and delicious range of products is the best way to define who we are. As for what we believe: we at Kőröstej Kft. believe in many things.

We believe in constant innovation and never-ending invention. There has never passed a year of our company's existence in which we have not developed something new- whether products, packaging, inventions or innovations. And our star products are those which we have invented and perfected ourselves, which you can find nowhere else. This is what true innovation means to us.



We at Kőröstej also believe that trust is the foundation of all relationships, business or personal: we often find it impossible to distinguish between the two. For us, either kind can come first: business can flourish out from a personal relationship, just as the closest of bonds can emerge from a relationship that began in business. Indeed, Dr. Riad Naboulsi, the owner of the company, recently celebrated the marriage of his son to the daughter of a close friend, with whose company Kőröstej has been working for over a decade: a relationship that began in business, ended not only in friendship, but in a union of families. This is the level of trust we foster in our relationships, and why it is so important to us.

We at Kőröstej believe in the importance of speed. We do not believe in unnecessary delays, nor in red tape and paperwork holding back growth and development. Everything we do, we do as fast as possible, whether it is developing new products or establishing new business relationships. Indeed, whether perfecting a product, meeting a new partner, or arranging a shipment to a completely new market, it all happens in the least time possible, and we do this by understanding the importance of speed, without for a moment compromising on quality

Above all, we at Kőröstej believe in quality. The surest mark of this is the testimony we receive from all our partners, whether our relationship is new or decades-old: if there is one thing we refuse to compromise on, it is quality.
