At Alamir we pride ourselves in making Lebanese food the traditional way. Our father started this business in 1992, making small batches of hummus and falafel in a little commercial kitchen in Miramar, Wellington. At this point the “Alamir” name wasn’t born yet – we were still trading as ‘The Delicious Lebanese Snack Co Ltd’, distributing to local Supermarkets, Restaurants and cafes.
Slowly the product range grew and our father (and let’s be honest, our mother!) began thinking about how else can we spread our natural-and-full-of-flavour “super food” to everyone!
In 2001 we opened ‘Alamir Bakery’ and started making traditional Lebanese Pita Bread and all types of Lebanese food; from kebby to pizzas to kebabs, in a small takeaway-style shop. Being so close to our customers, we really started to notice how much Kiwis love Lebanese food and great quality produce. We knew we were onto a winner – we were going to need a bigger space! That’s when we moved into our current premises in the Miramar Metro.
‘The Delicious Lebanese Snack Co Ltd’ has since merged with ‘Alamir Bakery’. We are now one business providing the country with “delicious Lebanese snacks and baking”, and Wellington residents with fresh and authentic Lebanese food.
