AlZein

“ALZEIN" is an extra virgin olive oil marked by the taste and the scents of the olives harvested in the early autumn. Well recommended  for consumers who prefer a high quality extra virgin olive oil, with a lighter taste but still has the flavors of the olives, and the aftertaste reminiscent of artichokes.

 

Near the village of Kufair, (North of Jordan) the farm may be on the exact same ground where Jacob (يَعْقُوب‎) grew his farm before crossing the Jabbok

Health Benefits

  • High Vitamin "E" since olives are harvested when they are still green.

  • We use vented crates, and press the olives within 6 hours of harvest to ensure low acidity levels

Nurturing & Picking

The olives we used in this oil are a mixture of Local Roman (70%), Spanish (20%) and Kalamata (10%) olives, this mixture gives that light and smooth taste.

The trees have been nurtured and taken care of by generations of farmers, which have passed their passion they have for the land and trees, to the next generations.

During picking season families from the near by villages join us in this process, just like their grandparents did.

electricity

85% of the electrical energy used in the farms and oil presser is produced from solar panels

emissions

The farms and olive presser annually save:

  • 3,820,480KG of CO2

Labor

We work with the ILO (International Labor Org) to make sure that all our farms are a fair work place

Some of our farmers are Syrian displaced families, we provide them with a decent environment to live in and a school for the children

WASTE

Olive oil solid residues  are used as a heat source in heating water for farms, leaves are used to make compost, and no disposables are used in the process
