Zatoun Fair Trade Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Certified Fair Trade Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Palestine. A delicate, full-bodied olive oil with a sweet, smooth taste and peppery finish. Ideal for a wide range of delicious uses and is perfect for gift-giving.

Zatoun Extra Virgin Olive Oil is grown using traditional methods on ancient land and terraces on the hills of Palestine. Sourced from small-scale growers working in co-operatives in the West Bank this is the world’s first fair trade olive oil (awarded certification in 2009).

Zatoun is made from the Nabali olive variety native to Palestine – the land of the first olive trees. It is delicate, and full-bodied, with a sweet and smooth and peppery finish.

Zatoun is perfect for dressings, marinades, drizzling, and for sautéing vegetables or meats. And it is simply delicious with pita bread and baguette – try it with Zatoun own za’atar thyme herb mix.

Always the perfect oil for your home table or someone else’s. Gift Zatoun olive oil instead of a bottle of wine – your friends will enjoy the oil and remember the giver much longer.

Olive oil is the lifeblood of the land of Palestine and its people. Grown and harvested by Palestinian farmers at great personal danger and cost. For many families, olives and olive oil are a major source of sustenance and livelihood.

Zatoun Extra Virgin Olive Oil is supplied and bottled in the Jenin area of the West Bank by Canaan Fair Trade, one of the oldest exporters of quality olive oil from Palestine.

To produce high-quality extra virgin olive oil olives must be totally unbruised, pressed immediately, and stored in stainless steel. The olive harvest in Palestine is in October and November which is earlier than in other Mediterranean countries. The olives are picked by hand and pressed in one of 27 village presses or centrally using a state-of-the-art olive press in a splendid new facility in Burqin, Palestine.
