Born from humble beginnings as a flatbread & pita baker in 1973, Mr. Mahmoud Farhat was a visionary, aspiring to be a global leader in bakery equipment manufacturing. He embarked on this journey by designing the first Lebanese automatic bread line, which he successfully tested and operated at his own bakery.
At the time, a modest 100 sqm facility was adequate for designing, manufacturing, and selling his innovative machines to local Lebanese bakers. However, in 1982, demand soared, prompting Mr. Farhat to establish "FARHAT For Trade & Industry." The company became specialized, creating highly automated, customized equipment for baking Lebanese, Baladi, Arabic bread, and manakish & pizza pies.
By 2000, a new generation, Mr. Farhat's sons, joined the enterprise, and the company transitioned to "Farhat Bakery Equipment." With fresh ambition and drive, they developed new, well-engineered production lines for various flatbreads including Lebanese Arabic bread, pocket pita, Greek Souvlaki, naan, pizza base, flour tortilla, lavash, Tannour bread, Iraqi samoun, and pitta bun.
Beyond flatbread lines, Farhat Bakery Equipment introduced automatic stacker counters and baggers for efficient flatbread packaging, wire mesh and modular plastic bread conveyors, automatic breadsticks and grissini makeup lines, as well as a range of high-temperature tunnel ovens.
This fusion of the father's expertise and sons' ambition propelled Farhat Bakery Equipment to become industry pioneers. Present at major international food industry exhibitions like IBIE, IBA, GULFOOD, IBATECH, they continually introduced innovative machines and solutions to new markets, securing their place as a global leader in bakery equipment manufacturing.
