Exquisite with olive oil and fresh bread, za’atar is the trademark spice blend of Palestine. Organic thyme is grown near Nablus by a women’s co-op, gathered and dried, blended with roasted sesame seeds, ground sumac, and a touch of sea-salt. Fair trade za’atar is ideal with vegetables, salads, baked dishes, rice and pasta dishes. Za’atar keeps indefinitely stored refrigerated or frozen. Add a Middle Eastern flair to your cooking.
Canaan fair trade za'atar is the result of local and global partnerships invested in creating economically viable and environmentally sustainable farming in Palestine. Education and ongoing training, as well as help with organic certification and community development programs, enables small farmers and women’s village co-ops to work together. As a result, they are able to combine resources and gain access to a larger international market. The immediate goal is to create economic stability for rural Palestinian communities challenged by ongoing regional conflict. Preserving traditional farming methods, combined with modern innovations in farming and production, enables small farmers to continue on their land and earn a living, and provide brighter prospects for future generations.
