Zaytoun logo

Palestinian goods are supplied by Zaytoun a community interest company set up in 2004 to bring goods to us direct from Palestinian farmers.   Zaytoun says ‘our products from organic olive oil to juicy madjoul dates, are part of a range of artisan foods reflecting a Palestinian culture of good food from a bountiful land’.

**Regular orders can be placed with us, to keep you topped up**

 

 

Zaytoun olive oil

 Extra virgin olive oil: Zaytoun’s organic Fairtrade olive oil has been sourced through Canaan Fair Trade in Jenin. It is a world-  first Fairtrade olive oil, pressed from the fruit of ancient trees, tended by hand through generations of family  farmers.

 

Zaytoun dates Dates: ‘the ‘Medjoul’ is the finest of dates. It is grown in the Jericho area which has the perfect climate for producing these  delicious, soft succulent dates. They are sourced through the ‘Palm Farmers Cooperative’ and are a vital source of income in this  area which is seeing vast tracts of land illegally confiscated by Israel’.

Zatoun almonds

Almonds: ‘the ‘Om Al-Fahem’ is a premium almond. This variety, traditionally grown here as it thrives on the arid and rocky terrain, produces a large, sweet almond. Zaytoun almonds are sourced from a farmers cooperative in the Jenin area’.

 

Zatoun cous cous

Cous cous: ‘is large-grain wholewheat and sundried. It has a distinctive nutty flavour we think you’ll love. We were proud to introduce our first Gazan produce in 2006, but sadly it is not possible at this time to export anything from Gaza. The couscous we currently have on sale is from Jericho, but we hope that in the future we will be able to source more Gazan produce’.

Zaytoun zatar

Za’atar (wild grown herb mix): ‘is an everyday staple in the Middle East; a herb mix of wild thyme, toasted sesame and sumac.  It  is a zesty seasoning, delicious with olive oil on fresh bread, on tomato salads or rubbed into chicken before roasting’.

 

Soap: ‘Zaytoun’s soap contains 72% olive oil which is sourced from Palestinian olive farmers in the Nablus region. It is naturally cleansing & suitable for all skin types including oily skin. It is available in plain, lemon, milk and honey varieties . The ancient city of Nablus has been producing soap since the 10th Century. Olive oil is the principal ingredient of this natural soap. The soap is made and cut by hand in beautiful old soap houses by skilled craftsmen‘.
