Most of our fresh produce is grown in the Jordan Valley, either in the Occupied Palestinian Territories in the West Bank or on the east bank of the river in Jordan. As much of the Jordan Valley is over 200 metres below sea level it is several degrees warmer than surrounding areas and this unique micro-climate combined with fertile soils makes it an ideal location for growing a range of crops to serve the UK and Europe during the winter season. We have access to a wide range of crops but we specialise in the supply of fresh herbs and medjoul dates.
We market an extensive range of fresh herbs including basil, chervil, chives, coriander, dill, lemon thyme, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, sorrel, tarragon and thyme. Our Palestinian and Jordanian growers are located in the Jordan Valley, thereby enjoying the same ideal micro-climate for growing herbs year-round, while also giving us the added flexibility of using both Amman and Tel Aviv airports for logistical purposes in order to best meet our clients’ requirements.
While we deal with the most sophisticated growers in the West Bank and Jordan, we are also actively engaged in raising the growing standards of cooperatives made up of smaller growers, so as to allow them to access more demanding markets. Check availability via our fresh herb seasonal calendar.
The Jordan Valley is one of very few regions in the world that has the necessary climate to grow the large, sweet, succulent medjoul date. The crop is harvested in September but is available for export all year round. We work primarily with Palestinian growers and process at a packhouse located near Jericho.
Exquisite fresh "Barhi" dates are also available in limited quantities from mid-July to mid-August. Orders should be placed well in advance to secure availability. Rigorous cold chain management by our logistics team ensures they arrive in the freshest of conditions.
