Zaytoun Palestinian Olive Oil wins award

May 15th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Culture

Zaytoun has won the prestigious Arab-British Culture and Society Award.

picture-15The co-operative imports Palestinian olive oil into the UK, to provide an essential market for Palestinian farmers and raise awareness of the struggle of Palestinian life under Israeli occupation.

Zaytoun carries out activism as well, giving talks about the situation for its farmers, carrying out promotions and organising exchange visits.

Zaytoun is also the first Palestinian product to gain Fairtreade status, and the first olive oil in the world to be labelled Fairtrade.

And how fitting that the award has been announced today – on the 61st anniversary of the Palestinian ethnic cleansing.

Buy Zaytoun here, it tastes good and makes you feel even better!

    Thank you for encouraging and promoting the Palestinian struggle every one should know about their heart wrenching struggle instead of the one sided reporting done by most media.
