The dairy industry N. Th. Kouroushis Ltd was founded in 1959 in Vatyli, at Famagusta Province, by John Kouroushis as a family business in order to produce and supply milk and dairy products based on traditional taste, techniques of production and quality of that time.
In 1974, after the Turkish invasion and the loss of the factory the conditions for reactivation were extremely difficult. The industry had to be rebuilt from scratch once again, since they had to find space for its construction, the people for its operation but most important was to come across the economic resources which could support this project. However, the love and enthusiasm about this whole project lead to a small miracle.
The dairy industry was reactivated in Kofinou, a village of Larnaca, where it is still housed and located until today.
In 1989, the founder of the dairy Mr. John Kouroushis left the company and as a consequence the leadership of the company was completely given to Mr. Theophilou, who is the current CEO of the company.
In 2000, an active upgrade started in almost all the areas of production in order to meet the European infrastructure of the Building site achieving one way flow of processes thus maintaining the best Good Manufacturing and Hygiene practices required from the regulations of the European Parliament and the Council. In the same year N.Th.Kouroushis Ltd received its first certification for the proper implementation of quality management systems: ISO900: 2000 and HACCP.
All the above established the Company's liability to sell its products in countries which belong to the European market.
In 2004 a new chapter begins in the history of the company by creating the Research and Development Department. Since then, the company along with the production of traditional products and quality, is moving on to create new and innovative-functional products designed to meet the modern nutritional and healthy needs of consumers based always on the quality of the raw materials that would lead to premium final products.
In 2007 the first Strained Yoghurt was created with only 2% fat while the ones available in the market at that time were 3.5% and 5% fat.
In 2008 N.TH.Kouroushis Ltd was the first dairy company in Cyprus that was certified with the strict standard of products' safety IFS. (International Food Standard)
At the same year Kouroushis Dairy Company was awarded by the international Taste & Quality Institute (iTQi). We received 2 superior taste awards, for strained yoghurt (3 stars) and Kouroushis Kefalotyri (1 star). iTQi Institute is the leading independent Chef and Sommelier based organization dedicated to judging, honoring and promoting superior tasting food and drink from around the world.
In 2013 we managed to lower the fat content of Light Cheese Halloumi from 9.5% to 8%. The only Light Cheese Halloumi with the lowest fat available in the Cypriot Market.
