Awards and Medals

A Gratifying Award-Winning Experience

Although the best prize of all remains the highly gratifying experience of developing the local olive industry while enhancing the livelihood of Arab women and supporting numerous opportunities for coexistence, we have won multiple awards over the past few years. These international and local awards attest to the quality, flavor and excellence of our wide range of extra virgin olive oils.
