About Us

Achnagal Creamery was established in 1977 in Cyprus by our father Lefteris Eleftheriou. He had only just returned from his studies on dairy products at Ioannina, Greece. As a farmstead cheese maker, he produced Traditional Halloumi cheese and Kefalotyri cheese using a small custom designed factory at the back yard of the house he grew up in, with milk yielded from sheep and goats raised by the family at the time. By 1980, the once small Achnagal factory had to move to a bigger facility, because it was then that the company's exports of Halloumi cheese,Yoghurt &Kefalotyri cheese first started, specifically to the United Kingdom and Kuwait.

However, the Cyprus market has been the biggest drive for the Achnagal Creamery, after the introduction of the first commercial halloumi cheese produced from pure sheep milk in 1986. The ever increasing popularity of Cyprus as a tourist destination increased the demand for cheese and yoghurt significantly, and forced Achnagal to use cow milk as well. The need to produce quality products and to differentiate in the Cyprus market due to increased competition brought another milestone in our family buisness,, a separate, yet family-run Cattle Farm, Eleftheriou Bros LTD company in Cyprus, of which the primary purpose was and remains until today to produce clean and safe milk for the needs of the Achnagal creamery.

In addition to Achnagal creamery's physical establishments, we have proceeded to upgrade our Website and created also a Facebook page to inform all our devoted customers about our existing or new cheese products, interesting traditional recipes with cheese using only the finest ingredients, as well as the chance to contact us electronically to let us know about their ideas, questions or even provide their own recipes to be included in our website. Our cheese products' traditional homemade recipes have survived and flourished throughout time and represent until this day the signature recipes of the Cyprus diet and a significant part of the Mediterranean diet as well.

Today, the Achnagal Creamery has been transformed into a modern operation, housed at a newly built facility in Cyprus which fulfills HACCP and European Union requirements for producing cheese under safe and clean conditions. Together with its sister and family-run dairy company Eleftheriou Bros Farms.

Achnagal is ready to take on new markets, while ensuring the best possible hygiene and quality for its products.
