Palestina Olive Oil was first produced in 2016 by Daily Hugz, a non-profit that provides shared space in the West Bank for children to interact with nature and rescued animals.
By sheer chance, the Daily Hugz sanctuary was established on an existing olive orchard. Since the first residents of the sanctuary were rescued donkeys, soon, the olive trees at the sanctuary began to flourish because of the abundance of donkey fertilizer.
As a means to raise funds, Daily Hugz began picking the olives, pressing them and shipping the oil to the US. The response was so positive, Daily Hugz has been doubling the olive oil production every year since.
