For a number of years North Staffs Trades Union Council has been a volunteer distributor for Zaytoun – a Fairtrade community-interest company supporting the distribution of Palestinian artisan produce in the UK.
At our AGM earlier this year, we decided to link up with a local organisation Sumud Palestine to become joint distributors.
Sumud Palestine exists to further three main initiatives:
- Supporting mental health professionals in Palestine
- Supporting Palestinian farmers by replanting olive trees
- Raising awareness of the plight of Palestinians
Below are the products that we currently have in stock. These items are good value, the quality is amazing, and you are supporting a good cause!
