The olive oil will be produced according to millennia old traditions. Fully ripe olives will be processed using a millenia old “cold pressing” technique.
On the occasion of Israel Today’s 40th anniversary, we introduce our Canaan brand Olive Oil. We have called this fine mild olive oil “Eden”. Our own olive grove in Nizanna which was planted this year will, God willing, be producing fruit in about 3 years.
The olive oil will be produced according to millennia old traditions. Fully ripe olives will be processed using a “cold pressing” technique.
Israel has always been a “…land of olive trees…” (2 Kings 18) and countless oil presses have been discovered in archeological digs. Only a few people know that the Garden of Gethsemane, located on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives, is “Gat Shmenim” in Hebrew which means “oil press”. Olive oil was used, then and now, as food, for treating wounds, producing soap and anointing! Discover a long-forgotten tradition of the Holy Land and enjoy “Canaan olive oil “Eden” exclusively from Israel!
