ZAYTOUN WINS GLOBAL AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING WORK WITH PALESTINIAN OLIVE FARMERS
We offer our congratulations to Zaytoun, producer of delicious fairtrade products, which has been awarded Global Trader 2016 by Fairtrade International . Manal Ramadan stated: “Fairtrade has transformed the lives of over 2,500 olive farming families, guaranteeing them the sale of their entire crop at a fair price. Our challenge now is to grow the demand for the olive oil to enable thousands more families to join the movement and reap the benefits of this sustainable ethical trade model.” There is an article on the Fairtrade Foundation website with more information.
Local Oxford fair trade shops (Fairtrade at St.Michaels and The Windmill) sell a wide range of Zaytoun products including olive oil, dates, almonds cous cous, za’atar and smoked freekah.
