Sourced from Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committee (PARC), these Medjool dates are grown by a 12-member farmer cooperative in Jericho. Water shortages in the area forced farmers to seek out crops that needed less water to grow. Medjool dates not only require less water but can grow using the slightly salty water that sits under reservoirs of fresh water. The dates are processed in a modern PARC packaging plant, where they are inspected for quality, cleaned, sorted, graded and then packaged.
The Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committee (PARC) is a nonprofit organization that promotes sustainable economic development with 41 farmer cooperatives in the West Bank. PARC provides farmers with technical assistance, processing facilities, quality testing, and exporting services. It helps to improve water supply and infrastructure,critical in the West Bank. PARC also provides social services for women, children, and families.
