Our History

The “Zalatimo Brothers for Sweets” story began in the divine city that shines upon the world, Jerusalem. Inspired by its cultural heritage, Mr. Mohammad Zalatimo established the first shop for mediterranean sweets in the heart of Jerusalem in the year 1860.

The shop became famous for “Muttabaq” , a type of sweet of his creation. Made of paper-thin folded filo dough and filled with a special local white cheese. Soon after, “Muttabaq” became a popular breakfast locally.

Today Mr. Ahmed Wael Zalatimo is continuously developing the business of his great grandfather through carrying his passion for the making of sweets. Mr. Ahmed has developed “Zalatimo Brothers for Sweets” and evolved it into serving a wide variety of mouth-watering mediterranean sweets, patisserie, chocolates, nougat & gifts. Alongside the original recipe of the most famous Muttabaq.

Mr. Ahmed's efforts has fruitfully resulted in a network of branches across the Kingdom of Jordan & the region. These branches are supplied from a state-of-the-art factory, which is in turn is supported by one of the best storage facilities in the region.

With pride, Zalatimo Brothers for Sweets carry the tradition of their great grandfather giving their utmost attention to quality & continuous creativity & innovation.
