Zaytoun

Zaytoun is a community interest company founded in 2004.  Its aim is to create and develop a UK market for artisanal Palestinian produce and  delight its customers with premium quality products that are fairly traded, organically grown and sourced from small-scale farmers, while supporting farming communities through trade rather than aid.

Zaytoun was founded to support the resilience and livelihoods of Palestinian farmers through fairly trading their olive oil. Initially funded by hundreds of customers who put up payment in advance of receiving their oil, Zaytoun quickly established itself as a UK social enterprise. With funding from Triodos Bank the company developed to offer a wide range of Palestinian artisan foods, and supported Palestinian farmers to pioneer the world’s first Fairtrade certified olive oil in 2009, sold through the UK market.

Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year,  it remains a successful Community Interest Company supporting the relationship between Palestinian producer communities and a growing network of passionate, discerning customers in the UK and Ireland.
