Home Our Partners Emre Natural Foods

Emre Natural Foods brand was created by Hellim Cheese Factory® to deliver hellim and other cheese products directly to the American consumer.   

Hellim Cheese Factory®, a family owned and operated business, was established in 2014 by the Ertugrul family in Stroud, Oklahoma with a vision to bring Cyprus style grilling cheese to America.  The Ertugruls grew up in Cyprus, where hellim is served with almost every meal. Hellim is commonly served as fresh slices with fruit or grilled with eggs for breakfast; in paninis, breads, or on the grill at lunch; grated over pasta or fried into soup at dinner; and baked into pastries at desserts with coffee.  

​After more than 30 years of bringing suitcases full of hellim back from their annual trip back to Cyprus, the Ertugruls decided to start making their own hellim here in the US, and are dedicated to bringing a taste of Cyprus to cheese lovers all over the country using only the best, all natural ingredients.
