Olive Branch Fair Trade was created to lovingly present foods and handcrafted items from the ancient yet living traditions of Palestine.
Olive Branch Fair Trade Goal

How We Started
Here, I’d like to quote British Labour Councilor Jo Bird:
“We stand for justice and human rights for all … Many of us feel solidarity with Palestinians because of, not in spite of, our Jewish heritage.”
I’d also like to quote Yoly Zentella, PhD:
“In my cocina no other olive oil plays a part and each time I use it, I’m sending an anonymous message to not only olive growers in the West Bank, but all Palestinians living under occupation, ‘ you may not know me, but you are very much a part of my life and of my familia; you have not been erased and could never be forgotten’. ”
As Americans, we see very little of the humanity of people living in other countries, especially those in Palestine. I founded Olive Branch Fair Trade to lovingly present foods and handcrafted items from this ancient living tradition.
