From which farmer group do you get your olive oil?

Equal Exchange is sourcing the oil from small farmers through PARC, or the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees. PARC is a non-profit, non-governmental organization in the West Bank and is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) that works to increase the economic viability of small-scale farming. PARC's projects include: helping olive farmers establish infrastructure and farming techniques to enable them to compete in the olive oil export market; supporting women's economic empowerment through projects like the couscous co-operative; and improving soil and sustainable growing practices.
