Canaan Organic Fair Trade Infused Olive Oil
Fair Trade Olive Oil Trio.jpg (109734 bytes) From olive trees hundreds of years old, grown on ancient stone terraces and sustainably farmed by small co-ops of families using traditional methods, comes some of the most flavorful olive oil on the planet. After long hours of patient effort to hand pick the olives from the trees, they are sorted and those selected are stone crushed and cold pressed, utilizing a centuries old process. Minimal filtering preserves phytonutrients and the oil retains a robust rustic flavor. Palestinian olive groves, which contain some of the oldest olive trees in the world, are the mainstay of the agricultural economy in Palestine, providing much of the annual income for farmers. Fair trade ensures the farmers a dependable income that allows them to maintain their farms and provide for their families, despite the challenge of ongoing conflict. We offer three varieties of magnificent extra virgin organic olive oil: Nabali Tree has a medium fruity flavor with a peppery finish, infused with Pepper, Garlic or Red Chili. All are the perfect companion to bread, for finishing vegetables or any use where their uniquely delicious flavor can be appreciated. Add fair trade Za'atar mix and bread for dipping to enjoy a paradisiacal taste adventure.

Organic Fair Trade Olive Oil from Palestine
Organically grown extra virgin olive oil with delicate flavor from Arab farmers and a nonprofit organization run by Jewish and Arab women working together. Sindyanna is a non-profit organization administered by Arab and Jewish women which was established in 1996 to help restore and develop the Arab olive industry in the western Galilee. Although the cultivation of olives has been a mainstay in western Galilee for centuries, since 1967 Palestinian farmers have had to deal with a variety of obstacles due to the Israeli occupation. Olive cultivation provides crucial supplemental income for these farmers, but without equal access to modern irrigation equipment and international markets, profits are low. Droughts in 1998 and 1999 have taken their toll. Recently, olive trees have been uprooted to make way for the new Israeli security fence. Olive oil is made using Surri olives which are cold-pressed and certified organic by the Israel Bio-Organic Ag. Assn.
