What is Toorshi Foods?
Toorshi Foods is a new family-operated business.
Toorshi is the Armenian word for “pickles”. Many Balkan, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Persian languages use the same or a similar word.
For more than fifty years, the Vartanian family has been making and sharing a variety of homestyle pickled products with family and friends, using a special recipe. Now they are producing larger quantities in a new pickling facility, which means these products are available for all to enjoy and savour.
