Sindyanna of Galilee, Israel
The Galilean Flavor of Business for Peace
Sindyanna of Galilee is a female-led non-profit that actively promotes the concepts of “business for peace” and Fair Trade in Israel. We achieve this by selling Arab producers’ olive oil and other premium products in the international marketplace according to Fair Trade principles, and then channeling all of the profits back into Arab women education.
Established in 1996, Sindyanna of Galilee is the only certified fair-trade olive oil producer in Israel that operates among the country’s Arab population bringing deep functional expertise and a practical approach to build capabilities and deliver real impact. The work we do aims to bridge cultural divides, encourage sustainable agriculture, and support organic farming.
Our staff consists of Arab and Jewish women who share a vision of peaceful coexistence, and work towards this goal side by side with skill, care, and a passion for the craft. Among our fair trade products are organic and extra virgin olive oils, za’atar spice mixes, carob syrup, almonds, honey, olive oil soaps, and various traditional handicrafts.
