Zaytoun is a social enterprise inspired by a love of Palestinian culture, communities and cuisine. We exist to support Palestinian farmers through fair trade – 100% of our profits are reinvested towards delivering this mission.
This is no passing foodie trend – Palestinian farmers have been cultivating their lands for thousands of years and continue to do so, despite the challenges of farming under illegal occupation in the West Bank.
Whether it’s peppery olive oil, fudgy Medjoul dates, sweet crunchy almonds, zesty za’atar, smoky freekeh or nutty maftoul, we’re dedicated to bringing you the very best from Palestine’s fertile groves and fields.
We are driven by purpose and a passion for Palestine.
Our delight is to bring a taste of Palestine to your table, knowing that together we support the resilience of the communities from whom we source.
We’re a UK-based team with many connections to Palestine, which we visit regularly.
Some of us have been actively involved from the start, and others have bought fresh skills to our growing team. We’re all united by a love of what we do.
When a group of young activists visited Palestine in 2003, a seed was sown.
That seed has grown from activist roots into an award-winning social enterprise. Seventeen years on, Zaytoun remains a pioneering company.
