This organic extra virgin olive oil is made from Nabali olives, an indigenous Palestinian variety that produces one of highest quality olive oils in the world. It is cold pressed, full of antioxidents and can be used for cooking, baking, and dipping. Palestinian farmer cooperatives in the West Bank grow and press the olives. Purchases of this olive oil help small scale farmers who are faced with many economic challenges to survive and provide for their families
Store in a cool, dark place. Use within one year.
Olive farming is not just economically important in the West Bank — it is culturally important as well. Many of the olive trees on Equal Exchange's producer partners' farms hold an almost sacred significance for them. Some of the trees have been passed down from generation to generation and represent deep familial ties to the land. Equal Exchange is proud to support these farmers and their families as they rejuvenate their agricultural livelihoods.
I just returned from my first visit to Israel and never realized the olive oil I use is from Palestinian olive farmers. After seeing the economic disparities in Israel it makes me want to support this Equal Ezchange Olive oil even more. Delicious for salad dressings and dipping bread and cheese in.
