Zaytoun CIC is artisanal Palestinian produce that is rooted in time and tradition. From Jerichos finest Medjool dates to hand rolled organic maftoul, this is where you want to buy your middle eastern product from. I used to stock this in my restaurant and as soon as I put it on the shelves it would disappear. The Olive oil itself is incredible, winning “commended” and “commended by consumer” in the Soil Association organic food awards 2011.
Palestine is the home of the olive tree, with some of the oldest olive groves in the world, some dating as far back as 1500 to 2000 years, so the experience and the history have a lot to contribute to this wonderful produce that we can buy. But is not just the Olive oil. Dates, Zaa'tar, maftoul, olive oil soap, trees, almonds and not to forget my absolute favourite, Freekeh. These are unlike any that you will taste on the market.
Even their packaging is vibrant, contemporary and traditional appealing to everyone.
We must support smaller businesses like this to allow them to flourish and develop bringing their fruits of labour into the limelight.
Zaytoun also offer the option of planting trees in Palestine to help grow and develop further what they are creating. What a wonderful idea, contributing to a part of Palestine physically.

With Love, from Palestine....
