Medjoul dates are known as the ‘king of dates’ because of their plump flesh and rich caramel flavour. They are sourced from Palestinian farms around the ancient city of Jericho, an occupied area where vast tracts of land have been illegally confiscated by the Israeli government.
By buying Zaytoun Medjoul dates this Ramadan you are showing solidarity with Palestinian farming families in the Jordan Valley, helping them to make a sustainable living and face the challenges of the military occupation and expanding Israeli settlements.
Medjoul dates, also referred to as the ‘fruits of paradise’, are rich in vitamins and minerals and a great source of fibre, iron and potassium. They are ideal for breaking your fast and can be eaten straight from the pack, or they can be used to sweeten cakes and savoury dishes alike. They also make a delicious, ethical gift for family and friends.
We hope you enjoy them! Ramadan Mubarak.

Trade justice is an important principle in Islam and can be put into practice by breaking your fast with ethically sourced dates from marginalised Palestinian farmers.
