Time, it is something the modern-day shopper is not likely to have in abundance. Walking through the aisles at a grocery store, our senses are inundated. Everyone is trying to get our attention, our dollar, our buying patterns or demographics to add to their marketing research, so we can be placed in a box, minimized to a mere statistic. When we pluck a product off of a shelf, it usually ends there. Who out there really wants to take the time to get to know us, find out who we are? Turn customers into humans, statistics into conversations, aggregate data into community, and dollars into real change?
Our expanding line of Fair Foods includes olive oil from the West Bank, almonds from California, cashews from El Salvador, Honduras and India, mango from Burkina Faso and Peru, and raisins from Chile.
We are building long-term transparent supply chains with nut and dried fruit farmers all over the world.
Our extra virgin organic oil is robust and peppery with a strong fruit finish. It comes from two farmer co-ops which are part of the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees (PARC).
