This whole grain, hand-rolled and sun-dried couscous is imported from the Jenin, West Bank. Each spoonful of this organic couscous has a wholesome flavor and firm texture, unlike couscous from a machine. Prepared from organic Palestinian wheat, it is also certified fair trade by the IMO. To make this couscous, the wheat is boiled, sun-dried and cracked, and hand-rolled in freshly ground organic whole wheat flour, then steamed and sun-dried, all by women-owned cooperatives. This couscous keeps best in the refrigerator, or freeze leftovers for long term storage.
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.
