Facebook: Jannati, @JannatiHerbs
Jannati, which translates to “my heaven”, was launched in 2018, with the vision of Issa Hamayel, a supporter for local and ecological farming. It is a trademark of the Al-Munir Consulting and Food Industries Company, which was established in 2008.
Jannati is the first of its kind in food processing specialized in the production of food flavourings from natural herbs in Palestine and the products are free of any additives or preservatives. The idea of the project stems from the need to provide fresh herbs and vegetables throughout the year so that the product maintains the same authentic taste and ease of use at a cost appropriate for consumers.
Jannati's products are aimed at meeting the needs of consumers for herbal pastes (basil, coriander, Persian thyme, local green thyme, rosemary, garlic thyme, etc.) and vegetable pastes (minced ginger and garlic paste), in several sizes. Jannati also intends to expand the product list to include new herb and vegetable pastes and juices (thyme and ginger) in addition to the development of unique blends for all uses.
What distinguishes Jannati is its keenness to use local inputs of herbs and vegetables grown using ecologically sound, and chemical-free methods. Jannati selects its crops from different ecological farms throughout Palestine, and supports their production. It has also started to plant some essential production inputs itself in order to assure unfailingly high quality'. Jannati upholds the importance of making local food products of high quality and great taste, that are healthy, natural, and free of preservatives.
