Certified Organic 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 perfect for gift giving.

Zatoun Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is grown on farms and land that has gone through a rigorous organic certification process. It is the exact same olives produced by neighbourhood farms which have not gone through the expensive process which can take as long as 2 years.

The olives are picked and tagged immediately to enter a separate organic stream right to pressing, quality analysis, storing and finally bottling. All the same qualities and descriptions for the “conventional oil” (non-certified organic) apply.

It is still fair trade olives grown using traditional methods on the 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 for the Nabali olive variety native to Palestine – the land of the first olive trees. It is delicate, full-bodied, with a sweet and smooth and a peppery finish.
Zatoun is perfect for dressings, marinades, for drizzling, and for sautéing vegetables or meats. And it is simply delicious with pita bread and baguette – try with Zatoun own za’atar thyme herb mix.

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 is a major source of sustenance and livelihood.

Zatoun Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is supplied and bottled in the Jenin area of 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 other Mediterranean countries. The olives are picked by hand and pressed in one of 27 village presses or centrally using the state-of-the-art olive press in a splendid new facility in Burqin, Palestine.
