Since AlSadiq Company was founded in 2009 as a general contracting company, our vision for the olive sector was based on an integrated investment in everything related to the olive tree.
AlSadeq family has a long history in the olive oil sector especially the pressing mills as our grandfather purchased the first olive oil mill in the region 100 years ago, we decided in 2013 to start establishing a company according to the latest technology and equipment through the establishment of a modern olive press as the beginning of an integrated project specialized in the Palestinian olive tree, which will benefit us and the Palestinian farmers and producers. We started early 2013 with the production of olive oil according to a clear vision in our dealings with farmers based on honesty and mutual benefits. We began to spread our culture among the farmers that we will complete our project to begin with the olive production and continue with the re-processing of the remnants of the olive tree (peat (Jift), Zebar, olive tree wood).
Currently, four years after the start of our project, we have reached an advanced stage of our vision and our activities have become as follows
Za’tar Productio & Freekeh
Filling and marketing olive oil
Olive Oil Production
Production of peat molds
Compressed Natural Coal
Vision, Mission and Values
Our Vision: Achieving sustainable development that benefits the company and the Palestinian farmers and producers.
Our Mission: We seek to be a partner and a sustainable supplier of olive tree products and alternative energy products with high quality and efficiency in distribution, marketing, supply and logistics, and ensuring the protection of the environment and natural resources.
Our Values: Integrity, transparency, excellence in service and commitment to social responsibility through building trust with suppliers, customers, company team and constant communication with the local community.
Organic Olive Oil Project
By the beginning of 2018 the company started preparing for the largest project in Palestine to produce organic olive oil by contracting a group of farmers to convert their production to organic production with a total area of about ten thousand dunums (One thousand hectares). We expect that the first production of high quality organic olive oil will start in the 2020 olive oil season.
The company employs twenty people permanently according to the Palestinian labor law, including 15 male workers and 5 female workers. In addition, the company employs about 12 families in their homes.
All employees work in the company from owners and employees of the wage as an integrated team involved in the decision and development and each team is organized on the basis of its own fields, which contributed to the success of our existence and provided the company a team of workers capable of management and production.
The equity capital amounts to approximately $2 million between operating capital and investment in buildings, equipment and production lines.
Relationship with local community
As a company working with a large segment of the community in our town (Arrabeh) and the Governorate (Jenin), we view our society as a supporter and a main partner, as we allocate part of our returns to contribute to several areas serving the local community.
Since its establishment, the company has all its operations within the environmental standards and we consider ourselves as environment friendly. A large part of our products (peat-charcoal) from the olive tree was causing environmental damage. We are confident that our project is one of the most environmentally friendly projects in the country. The olive tree in our production and the waste of the project is equal to zero percent. We don’t use only residues from the olive tree, but we also use the residues of other industries in our products, especially from the stone and construction sectors, which has a lot of waste.
The company’s products have a positive advantage in terms of competitiveness, quality and price. Within a period of not more than two years we have been able to reach several domestic and international markets.
At the local market level our products reach many outlets in the Palestinian territories (West Bank and Gaza Strip) and we have distribution centers in many Palestinian cities.
At the international markets, the company has carried out many promotional programs and activities through participation in international exhibitions, trade missions and B2B meetings. Our products have entered a number of international markets such as USA, UAE, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
