Zaytoun, from Palestine - Fair Trade Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (250ml)
ZAYTOUN IS A COMMUNITY INTEREST COMPANY FOUNDED IN 2004
Our aim to promote fair traded Palestinian produce and to reinvest profits back into supporting Palestinian livelihoods.
Produced from rain-fed and hand-picked olives that have been pressed on the day of picking, this award-winning extra virgin oil connects you with farmers whose ancestors have tended their trees by hand for countless generations.
Naturally organic and ethically sourced from small-scale farmers in the West bank, this is the world’s first olive oil to be awarded Fairtrade certification in 2009.
From stone terraces nestled on sun-drenched West Bank hills comes produce grown with wisdom, by people who know their trees both as old friends and as a lifeline for their children.
Freekeh is durum wheat that is harvested while still green and roasted on an open fire. It’s then rubbed (fareek) to remove the husk and reveal an aromatic grain packed with protein and fibre. Rich in flavour and texture, it’s easy to use in dishes such as pilaf, risotto and salad.
Traditionally freekeh is slowly simmered in stock for a nourishing soup – a Palestinian staple for centuries.
