Zejd Premium is a select Lebanese extra virgin olive oil cultivated in the groves of the Akkar region in Northern Lebanon. Only the best young Souri green olives are selected and handpicked in October for cold extraction on the same day.
The resulting oil is peppery with notes of almonds and cut grass, 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.
