"Alfajores" are the most traditional Argentinian cookie.
The typical Alfajor is made with two slightly sweet shortbread-like cookies, filled with dulce de leche, a creamy caramel confection made from milk and sugar.

SUCCESSO has been making KOSHER alfajores with traditional Argentine flavors and ingredients for over a decade.
All SUCCESSO products are certified kosher and adhere to strict quality and hygiene standards.

At the end of 1999, "Successo" was born as a Kosher bakery venture based in Mar del Plata, which had to be reinvented after the economic crisis of 2001.
After a difficult situation for the company, in 2003, the founders approached the Ariel Foundation for help (which encourages the development of entrepreneurs).

The project was evaluated and valued for combining Argentine and Jewish traditions while maintaining the Kashrut, and offering a traditional product of great quality.
The company received from JDC financial aid and professional guidance to grow the company.

Today, SUCCESSO is a successful business, selling homemade tasting alfajores across Argentina and also exporting to other countries.

Where did the name come from?
Its founder, Claudio Yabra, used to work in a food importer in Brazil, where he used to hear the phrase that when "everything good was a "Success".
Years later, when they had to define the name, they decided to aggiornar the word «successo» taking advantage that it can be used and understood in other languages, such as Italian, Portuguese or the same English, if the o is taken out. In addition, the word is associated with Italian cuisine, which always had a good image.
