Zaytoun Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a rich and peppery cold pressed Palestinian oil, organically grown and fairly traded. Delicious for dressings and all kinds of cooking, Zaytoun's Olive Oil made from hand-picked olives and prepared with care, for your table.
Olive oil is an integral part of the Palestinian economy and culture. Olive oil production goes back 5,000 years in Palestine and the olive trees have been passed through generations of the same family.
Zaytoun Olive Oil is described by wine and food writer Malcolm Gluck as: "One of the least aggressive yet pungently attractive olive oils I have tasted. It is in the rich nourishing class of the best of the fruity Sicilian, Cretan, and northern Spanish oils and its beautiful green cloudiness bespeaks of care and judicious handling."
Zaytoun is an ethical business established to support marginalised farming communities in Palestine. As a non-profit company their primary objectives lie with the welfare of the producing communities. They invest in empowering farming communities and developing the agricultural infrastructure in Palestine. All of Zaytoun's oil is extra virgin, first cold pressed, organically grown and fairly traded. Zaytoun's suppliers source the oil from cooperatives in the areas of Salfit, Tulkarem, Nablus, Jenin and the Galilee.
