The Original Hummus Bar

Tradition is what binds generations and keeps memories of the past alive. In the foothills of Mount Hermon in the picturesque village of Rashaya, one tradition in particular has not only survived, but has served to enrich this community and its inhabitants. For centuries, Rashaya and the surrounding areas have been known for their successful grape growing industry. Rashaya is the home of the Kadamani family and the place where their great grandfather’s love for the vines and its offerings inspired him to produce this sweet creation, grape molasses. The recipe and devotion has bridged over four generations of the family.
Utilizing traditions passed down from their ancestors, today Grapeful has raised the bar, adding modern technology and applying advanced standards of food safety to continue producing the sweet molasses, grape syrup and energy bars.
