Their produce range focuses on olive oil and olives. All of their oils are extra virgin, first cold pressed, organically grown and fairly traded. They are available through local sellers or you can buy cases direct from their website.

Since the company was launched, they have imported over 140,000 litres of Palestinian olive oil into the UK, which means that more than £1.25million has reached farmer co-operatives.

They are currently looking for market places in the UK to stock their range of Palestinian fair trade products. Why not ask your local health food shop or food co-operative if they would like to get involved?
