CANAAN FAIR TRADE is a Palestinian commercial enterprise that provides premium agricultural goods produced by networks of smallholder groups in Palestine. While Canaan works with both conventional and organic products, sustainability and economic empowerment for rural Palestinian communities through fair trade and low impact technologies remain our primary business focus. Canaan Fair Trade sells olive oil, almonds, and other delicacies, supplying bulk as well as finished and packaged olive oil and a wide range of other specialty foods to Europe, North America, Australia, Asia, and the Middle East. We are pleased to invite you to celebrate with us and our farmers our 9th Annual Harvest Festival/Jaru'a to be held on Canaan grounds in Burqin/Jenin on Friday, November 7th, 2014, where we will be celebrating Canaan's 10th anniversary and the 10th anniversary of the Palestine Fair Trade Association. The festival, or Jaru’a, is a traditional end of harvest celebration giving gratitude for another year of abundance. Farmers, women producers, fair trade distributors, and international visitors gather together to celebrate the fruit of the season. Come and taste the delicious meal of Musakhan prepared by the local women cooperatives, enjoy the freshly baked Taboun bread with freshly pressed olive oil, and mint tea on bonfires!
