Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsSindyanna of Galilee is a not-for-profit operation aiming at the empowerment of Arab women, who are marginalized socially and economically in the local context (Northern Israel between Haifa and Nazareth). Beyond the tangible empowerment (providing employment in the company's processing and trade facility; offering training courses in basket weaving), it is Sindyanna's mission to contribute to the mutual cooperation and respect of people of different ethnic and religious backgrounds (mostly Jewish population and Muslim/Christian Arab populations) in Israel, which is also reflected in the company's workforce. Through its new own olive oil sourcing project at Roha (organic and fair trade), Sindyanna wants to extend high quality olive oil production and increase its sales figures to have more means for social investment.
Use of Fair Trade PremiumThe Premium is mostly used for empowerment projects, such as regular basket weaving classes for women and oil testing seminars. A complete Premium report is available.
