Founder and CEO, Green Dates
2022 Fellow – Jericho
I’m a Palestinian entrepreneur, a young man from Al-Jaftalk, a village in the province of Jericho and Al-Aguar. where I lived and grew up, Then studied business management at Al- Najah National University in Nablus.
After my studies, I worked as a coordinator with several Palestinian civil institutions working in the area of development, I pioneered the creation of a project for the mobilization, packaging and marketing of a product belonging to the Palestinian Majhool dates.
5% of Palestinian dates production can not be sold in the market but can be recycled, since they are not rotten or damaged, but during the picking operations they are kneaded due to some practices.
Green Dates is a Palestinian company, established in the Palestinian Valley, which is famous for the cultivation of Palestinian Majhool dates, produced by small farmers in the Palestinian Jordan Valley. We aim to preserve the environment by purchasing dates that are destroyed by Palestinian farmers then recycle it into a date paste.
Our company distributes Mejhool dates to local markets and exports them to international markets. We are proud of the quality of our products.
