Company Profile

Established in 1956, during the years that carob trade was at its peak, the company soon managed to command a leading position as a processor of carobs especially those originating from the Limassol district where most of the best fruit ("koumpota" variety) were grown.†Situated in Limassol, the place that for centuries was the center of the carob trade, the company's factory processed at the 1960s†around 25% of the island's very large carob production (over 60.000 tons). Today, it remains as one of the two carob kibbling plants on the island being also the last† private processor with a 25-30% share of the total carob processing and export business.

George Araouzos & Son Ltd has survived primarily due to its strong export market base but also to the dedication towards the carob business by the succeeding generations, beginning with founder George, son Louis and now grandson George. Carob products are exported mainly in North Africa where they are used to produce the carob syrup drink traditionally consumed during the Ramaddan as well as turned into roasted carob powder, a chocolate alternative which has been lately introduced in greater quantities in the health food industry. Carob kibbles are exported also to other destinations, especially Mediterranean countries and the USA. Seeds are sold selectively to one of the five Carob Bean Gum processing†factories around the world and demand for the product is high as Carob Bean gum has very strong natural binding properties compared to other stabilizing substitutes.

Bulk processing of Cyprus' black gold'

The company's long experience in the marketplace,†the reliability and consistency in their dealings with clients throughout the world along with a loyal supplier base on the island give†a competitive edge in the Cypriot carob trade. As one of the two carob kibbling plants in Cyprus, G. Araouzos & Son Ltd is today a leading Cypriot company in the trade of bulk carob products. Its strength remains what for centuries characterized the Cyprus carobs, high sugar content, a quality attribute still respected by worldwide buyers.
