Helen loved hummus. But in 1978, very few people in the region knew what hummus was. So Helen made her own at home . . . fresh . . . from real, natural ingredients. When friends came over, Helen often served them her hummus, which they loved. In fact, they liked it so much that they encouraged Helen to make lots of hummus and to start selling it to the local stores so they could enjoy her hummus at any time.
And so began the legendary Helen’s Pure Foods company. Helen became an early female entrepreneur, and Helen’s hummus led to Helen’s Tabouli Salad, Couscous Salad, Baba Ghannouj, and many others, as well as to a growing, loyal following of customers who love her products. Today, Helen has retired, but the company she created continues on, using her timeless recipes - with no changes made to them - and follows her passion for using only the best natural ingredients, freshly prepared.
You will only find Helen’s Pure Foods products sold in the Mid-Atlantic region, in the finest gourmet stores, natural food stores, supermarkets, and restaurants. Helen felt strongly that her products should always be as fresh as can be. Storage and long shipping times were never options. Even today as a much larger company, Helen’s still has no warehouse and uses no preservatives. Products are made fresh, shipped fresh, and enjoyed fresh. It’s Helen’s legacy. We hope you enjoy some soon!
