As today’s news headlines are filled with stories of conflict in the Middle East, Alter Eco Fair Trade defies these events by unveiling the first USDA Certified Organic, Fair Trade Certifiedâ„¢, Carbon Zero Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oils from Palestine. These GMO free, Gluten free, dairy free, and vegan oils originate from Rumi and Nabali olives, both native to Palestine.
Planted, picked, and processed by fair trade cooperatives in Palestine, Jenin, West Bank, Alter Eco selects the highest quality olives with perfectly balanced flavor, aroma, and acidity while maintaining their fair trade commitment to help empower marginalized rural communities.
Each bottle directly supports a better life for farming families by having an over 30% increase in farmer revenue over conventional prices. This translates into financing scholarship funds, micro loans for women’s empowerment programs, and olive tree planting.
