Choose from a range of fine foods from Palestine for Christmas!

Zaytoun is a Community Interest Company founded to support Palestinian farmers through fair trade and 100% of the profits are reinvested into furthering this mission. The range is both a celebration of the exceptional quality produced in Palestine, and a means of sustainable livelihood for the growers. 

The social enterprise bought the first Fairtrade olive oil to market in 2009 and continues to source a growing range of fine foods from Palestine. It now includes Roasted Chilli Almonds and Carmelised Almonds, za’atar, Great Taste Award winning Medjoul dates, giant couscous maftoul, green wheat freekeh and Fairtrade organic almonds, as well as a selection of hampers, gift boxes and Palestinian cookbooks.
