At first glance or bite, dates and olive oil do not really have much in common. But behind the scenes, we at Nara & OEL are waving an unmissable flag. The flag of our shared values.
A few years ago, our companies both grew out of family structures to produce and market humanity’s oldest agricultural products (olives and olive oil since 4000 BC, dates since 5000 BC) and we have always been committed to unconditional transparency. This transparency is our opportunity to jump on a noticeably longer train of consciousness and to make a sustainable contribution to changing eating habits. Together we are certified organic, natural, single-origin, fair trade, responsible, young, and dynamic. We are worth trying.
We hope to have made you curious. Here, we allow our partnership to flourish with a joint recipe.
