Berloumi, a Belgian halloumi style grilling cheese
“It’s cheese, Jim, but not as we know it.”
Berloumi is the cheese it all started with for De Zuivelarij. It is a type of cheese originating in the Middle East. It has a unique taste, incomparable to any other cheese. Fried or grilled, it has a savory, warm and rich aroma. But above all it’s the texture that makes the cheese exceptional. It does not melt like other cheeses. Our cheese feels rather stiff, meaty and resilient in your mouth. A cheese with a versatile character and a taste sensation you will quickly appreciate!
Discover our different seasonal varieties!
Berloumi, that’s cheese for grilling. We make our cheese to the rhythm of the seasons. Every season has a different marinade. In spring it is marinated with chili and mint. But in winter you will taste smoky accents.
In De Zuivelarij, we process milk from local farmers to unique dairy products. Each farmer produces the milk for one single product. Recently, a local farmer switched to organic farming. Making an organic halloumi cheese was a logical step. In this way, we are further shortening the chain between farmers, producers and consumers. You can find our Berloumi-Bio in the bio-shops and Bio-Planet. Would you like to know more about our farmers? Be sure to check this page.
More ecological? No problem, our creative cheesemakers came up with packaging-free Berloumi. The same cheese, but without the packaging. We offer it at various packaging-free stores all over Belgium. Be sure to check out the page for all the outlets.

Other dairy products from our Zuivelarij
Our Ricotta by Berloumi is a real ricotta that we make with milk whey. We heat the whey, and scoop off only the ricotta that floats to the surface.
To produce our viVie Cacioricotta, we cook the milk first. in this way we preserve the ricotta proteins that would otherwise have been lost.
