Palestinian olive oil is reputed to be among the best in the world, where its sheer quality puts it up there with Europe’s finest (if not above!). Indeed, Palestine is the home of olive trees and has the world’s most ancient olive groves, dating as far back as 1,000 years. The olive trees can be seen dominating the agricultural landscape and produce fruit that supports over half the population. The rich fertile soil, Mediterranean climate and use of traditional farming methods make Palestinian olive oil a world outstanding product. It is commonly used as salad dressings, marinades, baking and as a healthy option of oil in cooking.
Ariha’s cold-pressed extra-virgin oil is sourced from the Jenin and Ramallah areas in the West Bank, and is also available with an EU-organic certification.
