Zejd Lebanese organic extra virgin olive oil is produced by the Fares family in the mountain village of Baino, Akkar. Organically grown Souri olives without the use of chemicals or pesticides are carefully selected from the family orchard, hand picked at the beginning of November and cold extracted on the same day. The resulting oil, with a mixture of green and black olives, is well balanced, fruity with a gentle peppery finish and is a typical expression of the region’s Mediterranean climate and ancestral knowhow.

What grew over two centuries as a family heritage of pressing locally sourced olives from the northern hilly Beino landscape took on a full modernistic vocation in 2004, giving rise to the coveted Zejd brand. Modernity was in no way meant to replace tradition. Rain-fed, unbruised, and organically grown local Souri olives are still exclusively handpicked. Oil is cold-extracted by mechanical means, without solvents or heat. Local farmers and produce are always prioritized, eco-friendly packaging makes the cut, and a zero waste facility ensures byproducts are diverted to irrigation or heating.
