who are we
We are a third-generation family-run company passionate about making the best Palestinian artisanal food to place on your dining table. Farmers and their glorious land are at the heart of what we do. Because the land is near and dear to our heart, we named our company just that , Al’Ard meaning land in Arabic.
We believe in organic, environmentally friendly farming because we know that consuming healthy food is so important to maintaining a healthy body. And, just like our family, our company thrives on complementing tried and tested traditional knowledge with contemporary practices to provide you with nothing but the finest quality products from Al’Ard.
Ziad Anabtawi started Al’Ard in 2008 to support underprivileged Palestinian farmers struggling to sell their olive oil at a fair market price by providing them with state-of-the-art facilities and helping them reach new global markets. Fast forward 10 years, his son Subhi has returned to Palestine after travelling across Europe learning about organic farming and fair trade practices. Despite the company’s growth, farmers are still our first priority. Our fair and transparent business ethics is helping them access tools, storage facilities, agricultural expertise, and internationally recognized certification. We know what is good for the framer is also good for us, that’s why we all work together hand in hand to make the finest traditional Palestinian foods.
