​A Taste of Palestine: Cultivating Resistance by Megan Parry

Taste Of Palestine by Megan Parry 
Farming is something close to my heart, having grown up on a small farm in Somerset and now working for the Sustainable Food Trust campaigning for sustainable food systems, it seemed only right that food and agriculture should be the focal point of my first trip to Palestine. The Amos Trust a Taste of Palestine tour provided the perfect opportunity, and I will be forever grateful to have been able to join the 10-day trip. It was eye opening and inspiring. Heartening and heart wrenching in equal measure. The food delicious, the scenery breathtaking, the people some of the most kind and generous I have ever met. Yet, always the occupation, a sinister backdrop.

Israeli policies have seen the separation of people from their farms and fields, the confiscation of land and resources, the demolition of homes and evi...
News about Traidcraft plc
September 24th, 2018 2:41 pm

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Traidcraft plc has announced that it has entered a period of consultation with its staff and stakeholders and may cease trading at the end of 2018. Traidcraft was a pioneer of Fairtrade and, as one of Zaytoun’s earliest and most enthusiastic supporters, continues to be a valued customer of ours and an important advocate for trade justice.
Now it is our turn to wholeheartedly support Traidcraft plc as it continues to trade as usual through the autumn and to the end of 2018. We are reassured by the fact that Traidcraft has considerable assets and will fulfil all orders to the New Year. It is an ironic twist that this year the autumn craft collection is one of the most attractive that they have yet produced and the company is looking forward to one of its best-selling seasons. Its economic challenges have been triggered by wider economic uncertainty in the wake of the Brexit negotiations, in particular the fall in the pound. It is...

Zaitoun by Yasmin Khan

In this beautiful Palestinian cookbook, food writer Yasmin Khan shares recipes and stories from her travels through the region. On her journey she harvests black olives from the groves of Burquin in the West Bank, hand-rolls maftool - the plump Palestinian couscous - in home kitchens in Jenin and even finds time to enjoy a pint with workers at the Taybeh brewery, which is producing the first ...
