Canaan Fair Trade

A favorite of Fair Trade the White House is Canaan Fair Trade. Not only do they harvest and supply quality, organic edibles, they employ marginalized Palestinian laborers caught in conflict to earn sustainable wages. Based in Jenin, Palestine, Canaan Fair Trade sells olive oil and other delicacies produced by over 1,700 small farmers organized in informal cooperatives and represented by the Palestine Fair Trade Association (PFTA). They supply bulk as well as finished and packaged olive oil and other goods to Europe, North America and the Middle East.

From Olive Oil to Wild Thyme to Couscous to an assortment of Whole Olives, Canaan Fair Trade is the label to look for. Available in many retail outlets.
