Hand-picked from Palestine's native Nabali olive tree, these green olives are individually cracked, then pickled in the traditional Palestinian method with water, lemon juice, and salt by a women-managed cooperative. These Certified Organic and Fair Trade olives are sold to help benefit the women's co-operative, as well as the organic farmers. Grown in the terraced olive groves of the West Bank areas of Jenin, Nablus, Salfit, and Ramallah, these olives are perfect for serving as an appetizer, tossing with couscous, or serving with lamb or fish.
Canaan Fair Trade uses the fair trade concept to empower marginalized Palestinian rural communities caught in conflict so they can sustain their livelihoods and culture. To that end, they have built direct working relationships with these communities, paying sustainable prices for their agricultural products to ensure fair wages for labor along the supply chain. Canaan Fair Trade educates farmers about sustainable practices and support conversion to certified organic production.
