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 which have been tended by hand through generations of family farmers.
Za’atar 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… but be warned, its fresh taste is addictive! Zaytoun’s za’atar is sourced from a women’s cooperative in Jenin, wild-harvested.
The ‘Medjoul’ is the finest of dates. It is grown in the Jericho area which has the perfect climate for producing these delicious, soft and 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.
The ‘Om Al-Fahem’ is a premium almond. This variety, traditionally grown here thrives on the arid and rocky terrain, producing a large, sweet almond. Zaytoun almonds are sourced from a farmers’ cooperative in the Jenin area.
Zaytoun’s couscous is large-grain whole wheat 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.
Made from unripe wheat which is toasted and cracked, freekah can be prepared and served like rice or used in soups and stuffing. Yotam Ottolenghi says “The grain has a wonderfully smoky, nutty (and slightly addictive) nature”. It has a smoky, herbal flavour which goes well with spices.
