A few words about us

In 2017, Star Tahina Limited brought the craft of Halva making to East Africa and opened the door to the first and only Tahina and Halva production factory in Uganda. The plant mill that grinds sesame to produce tahina paste is powered by a large production facility, while daily halva production amounts to just about a tonne of pounds ready for sale, distribution and export.

We have qualified and experinced staff that produced Tahina and Halva in full accordance with HACCP and Ugnda National Bureau of Standards. We have 100% pure Ugandan Sesame that has a rich taste known all over the globe. Our Tahina products are suited to deli’s, restaurants, hotels, catering services, institutional kitchens, etc. Our packaging is unique and allows easy storage and use.


Our Tahina does not require refrigiration so as to retain flavour and consistency, just store it in a cool dry place you are okay with. We are looking to partner with wholesalers, so now orders may be made directly to our factory located in Mukono along Jinja Road, a few kilometers after Seeta Town.
