Our Story

[Image: placeholder image]

Our story began in the sunlit kitchens of the Mediterranean, where Hommus is spelled with an "O". Cedar's founder Abe Hanna lovingly perfected the way we make Hommus recipe there—in the old world. He made it the traditional way, with pure ingredients and a simple process. Our family got to work.


Our Recipe

Simply Made

Cedar's chefs have life-long expertise in Mediterranean foods. Their unique ability to create authentic recipes like those found on the Mediterranean seacoast is what sets us apart. With every bite you take, you can be sure that you are tasting a small piece of the world's finest Mediterranean food.

It all starts with the CHICKPEAS.




We pick the finest vine-dried garbanzo beans.



We soak the garbs in pure, crystal clear water.



Some guys boil. We steam.



We pride ourselves on the smoothness of our Hommus.



Our rich tahini give our Hommus its signature taste.



All of our flavors use the highest quality veggies and spices.

The Best Ingredients

Cedar’s believes in creating the most extraordinary Mediterranean food, and searches the world for only the finest ingredients. Every recipe we make is hand-crafted with the same passion as the very first batch. Mediterranean foods should be made just as they are in the tiny villages that made them famous—with simple, fresh, whole, ingredients.

Simple and pure.

One thing that sets us apart is our ingredients. We keep everything out except the stuff that should be there. It is the purity of our ingredients that allows us to make the most delicious, most authentic Hommus you’ve ever tasted - while ditching the potassium sorbate or sodium benzoate* that the other guys depend on.

*There are preservatives and then there are preservatives. It's important to know the difference between synthetic preservatives and the Citric Acid we use in some of our foods. A lot of people get nervous when they hear "Acid", but the truth is that it's an organic preserving agent that is naturally occurring in most citrus fruits. Big difference between that and the synthetic stuff.

Pure and simple.

Our commitment to quality extends to the rest of the ingredients. We also use only the richest tahini, the tastiest veggies, and the choicest spices from around the globe. We personally taste test every batch to ensure it's up to our - and your - standards. The chickpeas are the start, but every component does its part to create the perfect balance of flavors.
