“Zatoun is Palestine in a bottle”
Fair Trade Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Soap
Zatoun olive oil is meant to bring to North Americans the human experience of Palestine and its people, especially farmers who depend on the land and its fruits.
Taste, smell, touch, see the glorious essence of the land that flows with life for Palestinians. Unknown outside its region, olive oil from Palestine is of exceptional quality with a lustrous green colour and unforgettable taste.
Support the farmers of Palestine in the struggle for their livelihood and land. Farmers are paid fair trade prices through Palestine Fair Trade Association (PFTA). Proceeds from each bottle sold is contributed to Trees for Life, a program to plant 12,000 olive trees each year in Palestine. An additional one dollar per bottle goes to help support Project Hope, an independent, grassroots effort to bring the expressive arts (painting, drawing, music and drama) as a means to help heal and contribute to youth in Palestine.
Zatoun is available primarily through grassroots groups and individuals working for social justice and peace in Palestine-Israel including faith-based groups of all denominations. Zatoun is intended as a tool to help promote their work and literally bring home the message that the struggle of Palestinians is one of human rights and justice.
Olive oil is a basic food which reminds us of our humanity and a symbol of our aspirations for peace.
You are invited to join the exciting effort to bring the taste and essence of Palestine to North Americans so that we can finally begin to truly understand the roots and solutions to the situation.
