Medjool dates Palestine UK

This Ramadan we invite you to break your fast with Medjoul dates from Palestine, to show solidarity with Palestinian farming communities.

Our Medjoul dates are ethically sourced from Palestinian-owned farms in Jericho. They boast a luxurious, succulent texture and a caramel flavour which makes them ideal for breaking your fast.

Fair trade provides a vital source of income for Palestinian growers in the Jordan Valley. For these growers, finding a market for their produce supports them to retain their lands. Their livelihood and land are under daily threat from a military occupation and expanding illegal settlements.

Agriculture is the best way for us to keep this land, to preserve it, and to preserve its identity

Why Zaytoun?

Zaytoun was founded 18 years ago to support the resilience of Palestinian producing communities through fair trade. We reinvest 100% of our profits into furthering that mission.

Our regular visits to Palestine enable us to work closely with Palestinian growers and supply chains with whom we have now established long-term relationships.
