July 17: Fair Trade Olive Oil tasting
From the Native Olive Trees in Palestine to Your Table
Join us Saturday July 17, 11-4pm at the San Francisco and Berkeley Global Exchange stores to taste Canaan FairTrade, organic olive oil from Palestine, the ancient home of olive oil.
Canaan olive oil is produced by farmer cooperatives that are members of the Palestine Fair Trade Association. Canaan Fair Trade uses the fair trade concept to empower marginalized Palestinian rural communities caught in conflict so they can sustain their livelihoods and culture. To that end, they have built direct working relationships with these communities, paying sustainable prices for their agricultural products to ensure fair wages for labor along the supply chain.
Also check out our colorful cotton aprons from around the world perfect for hosting a Fair Trade dinner party!
