I really have nothing to compare the oil too, as I have always used this oil and have not purchased any other brands; but I am never disappointed in the quality
Great Product - Great Packaging
May 29, 2023 | Posted By Kay Richter from Ewen, MI United States
I use a lot of olive oil for cooking, and this is an excellent product. I was impressed with the solid packaging of the case of bottles. It was good to see the divided carton and heavy corrugated cardboard that kept the bottles safe in transit.

Oil of Galilee
Sep 9, 2022 | Posted By Paul C James II from Folsom, LA United States
Jewish and Arab women work together to tend these ancient olive groves in Galilee and their loving spirits manifest themselves in this award winning organic olive oil that my family prizes and cherishes for its mouthful of taste. Delicious with every application!

Surprisingly good quality
Jun 27, 2022 | Posted By marlar from Cambridge, MA United States
Bought a small bottle 'to be supportive, coming back for a couple of large bottles because quality is high, excellent flavor, freshness, comparable to EVOO in higher end food shops, with all the added social benefits.

Terrific olive oil!!!

Not only does this olive oil taste great, it is so versatile that it could be used for almost any kind of oil. Plus, it supports people who really need our help. It's a win-win...
love this olive oil
May 9, 2022 | Posted By Patrice Clark from Bellingham, WA United States
We are hooked on this olive oil especially because it is made by a cooperative of Palestinian and Israeli women. It's also tastes lovely, is fair trade & organic. And as you say, it's a 'rare model of Jewish-Arab coexistence'.
May 6, 2022 | Posted By Cynthia from Caldwell, NJ United States
I treated myself to a small bottle for Christmas and it was wonderful so I came back for the large bottle. Really nice flavor for when you need a good quality olive oil. Much better than supermarket brands!

Besides supporting the olive farmers this olive oil has a wonderful flavor and adds to all your cooked and salad dishes.
Delicious Product of Middle East Peace Building
Jan 22, 2022 | Posted By Victoria F Avery from Sterling, VA United States
I had been eyeing this olive oil in the SERRV catalog for years and finally got a case of the 8.5 oz. bottles for Christmas gifts in 2021.. The flavor is mild but incredible, great for dipping. The backstory is really impressive. I will order more soon!

This is half of an upcoming holiday gift!
Nov 7, 2021 | Posted By William C. Briggs, Jr. from Hermosa Beach, CA United States
I sent a six-pack of olive oil to my daughter as a gift, and one of the bottles arrived broken. It didn't affect any of the other items in the package, but I wonder if you could please send a replacement bottle to her, credit my account, or refund my account for that one bottle, whichever is easiest for you. Thank you. P.S.-- We love the oil!
The best ever
Oct 3, 2021 | Posted By AnnieLaurie Burke from Allyn, WA United States
This is simply the best olive oil available.. The quality has remained consistently great over the years I have been using it, and the story of its origin is inspiring.

Great olive oil to buy and help support the work of Palestinian and Israel women

This olive oil is absolutely delicious. Everything I have cooked with it is better than ever. I am utterly amazed how much difference it has made in the taste of everything. I could not be more pleased.
Jul 26, 2021 | Posted By Sheila from PORTAGE, MI United States
We really like this olive oil. Making it more special is that we visited the cooperative that produces it. The partnership of Israeli and Arab-Israeli women could be a master plan for world peace.
Jul 1, 2021 | Posted By Sharon M Dodge from Sunset Beach, NC United States
I use the Extra Virgin Olive Oil on my salad. Added a great taste to the salads. Also, cooked with it and it did well.

Excellent olive oil I use pretty exclusively and gifted to friends. Light, subtle olive flavors and scent. Great for cooking and dressings. Recommend!
Best olive oil
Apr 8, 2021 | Posted By Leslie Sperry from Roanoke, IN United States
I find this Palestinian olive oil is the best I have ever used. I order it by the case and use it for almost all my oil needs. It has great favor and, of course, is the most healthy oil.

Awesome olive oil with a cause
Feb 10, 2021 | Posted By Ed Groat from MIDLOTHIAN, VA United States
We love this olive oil. We cook with it, We even make popcorn with it. We make salads with it. It is very versatile and way more heat tolerant than I would have expected. But what is even better? The social justice part of it. Jewish and Palestinian women working together to produce this product. I highly recommend this olive oil.

Israeli-Arab specialty - Olive Oil
Nov 7, 2020 | Posted By Nan Nutt from Concord, NH United States
I first ordered this oil to support Arab famers in Galilee after a trip to Israel. Now I also order it for myself and for gifts because it is exceptional olive oil and I can be quite sure it is not adulterated as many off-the-shelf brands apparently are. Good cooking and eating!
Nov 1, 2020 | Posted By Theresa L FirestoneUnique Gift from ELKHART, IN, IN United States
I ordered the Baking Day Gift Basket, along with the Organic Olive oil, the Pomegranate Vinegar and the Za'atar Seasoning, added a fresh loaf of bread for a special gift for a family member. We were not disappointed. Items were as described, quality, flavorful, unique and will be enjoyed for a long time.
Oct 31, 2020 | Posted By Bonnie Lepoff from Dunn Loring, VA United States
We were in Jordan when the travel restrictions began last March. I purchased olive oil in Amman and it is so good! This product will be a nice reminder of our travels there.
This oil is awesome!
Aug 10, 2020 | Posted By Ed from MIDLOTHIAN, VA United States
So not only does this oil have a great social justice background (Palestinian and Jewish women working together) but it is a great tasting oil. We use it for stir frying, in salads (with some vinegar), and making pesto to name a few uses. We have not used it for deep frying and I do not think it would do well for that. I highly recommend this oil!
The Best All-Purpose Olive Oil
Jul 9, 2020 | Posted By Leslie Sperry from Roanoke, IN United States
I love this olive oil. It has the perfect balance for me, and I use it all the time. I buy it by the case. And best of all, it benefits Palestinian farmers.

Fresh and great tasting. Fast delivery.
May 12, 2020 | Posted By Helen Goldstein from Iowa City, IA United States
I have been buying this product for many years, and I love it. The only thing that could be improved is the bottle spout.
May 9, 2020 | Posted By Jacqueline M Gleason from Garden Grove, CA United States
Great size for the price. I have cooked twice with the olive oil and I love it.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Apr 6, 2020 | Posted By Marilyn Mullane from Winchester, MA United States
While Italy is known for olive oil, many years ago on NPR, I heard a program where a lot of their olive oil was doctored. So, now I only buy from Serrv. I also like that I am supporting small scale Arab farmers in Galilee.
My Second Order
Feb 8, 2020 | Posted By Lisa Frucci from Niles, MI United States
I use a lot of olive oil. I tried this, and I really like it. I also like helping the Palestinians who are working to provide for their families. I pray more will be done so that the Israelis and Palestinians can live in peace.
Inspiring and Delicious
Jan 8, 2020 | Posted By Jonathan from Watertown, MA United States
Love the delicious oil, the Palestinian-Jewish collaboration, the healing peace work, and the message of what's possible. Wish SERRV had the beautiful packaging of Peace Oil used for other markets.
Smooth and a good taste
Nov 28, 2019 | Posted By Lynn from New York, NY United States
I originally bought this just to support the women, but now am a repeat buyer many times---I often save this special olive oil for the table, and use less special oils for cooking. It has a mild flavor, a perfect addition at the table for most meals, from bread to chicken to salad
Wonderful for your health, wonderful for the planet
Aug 8, 2019 | Posted By AnnieLaurie Burke from Allyn, WA United States
The oil is fragrant, beautiful to look at, and delicious. It's even better knowing that the producer is promoting peace and environmental responsibility.
Authentic Olive Oil
Jul 15, 2019 | Posted By Marilyn Mullane from Winchester, MA United States
Ever since NPR aired a segment on doctored olive oil from Italy, Spain and Greece, I have bought my olive oil from Serrv. I trust their oil to be authentic.
Great olive oil!
Jun 10, 2019 | Posted By Constance Del Nero from Easton, MD United States
We use a lot of extra-virgin olive oil at home, and my husband is very fussy! I started by ordering a small bottle to see if he liked it. He did, and we just ordered 3 large bottles. Highly recommend.

I am pleased to support this initiative and will continue to do so - and this is excellent olive oil!

This is excellent olive oil. Also makes a great gift!!! I love using my purchase of a fair trade item to help people who are challenged geographically and economically.
Good Quality, Good Price, and Great Cause
Jul 19, 2018 | Posted By Bill from East Walpole, MA United States
I do all of the cooking for my family because I really enjoy preparing and serving food. I use a lot of olive oil for the dishes I prepare and so being able to stock up and support a worthwhile organization , I am happy to do so. This is the third or fourth time I have purchased the organic olive oil and it will definitely not be the last. There may be better oils that you can purchase, but I doubt you will find a better way to support others. This product works well for sauteieng, marinades, and dressings and is a regular part of my pantry stock
Apr 12, 2018 | Posted By Theresa Brandon from Cedar Rapids, IA United States
I love this olive oil. Pure, stays fresh. Used to buy locally. Your service was very speedy, and for that I thank you.
Delicious Olive Oil!
Mar 20, 2018 | Posted By Nada from White Plains, NY United States
My husband and I absolutely love this olive oil. I am from the region and have much experience with olive oil. This oil is energizing and has a light, delightful flavor. I add to soups and salads. Highly recommended.
Amazing and Healthy!
Mar 14, 2018 | Posted By Jim from Columbus, OH United States
This olive oil is good for the heart and soul ... grown by Israeli and Arabic (Christian, Jew, Muslim) and phenomenally good. Award winning. Used it for years since visiting the cooperative and our hospitality gift of choice.
Great Olive oil!
Jan 19, 2018 | Posted By Ed from Midlothian, VA United States
I love this olive oil and I love who is making it. The cooperation of the Jewish and Palestinian women is wonderful but the oil tastes great! I use it in salads, cooking (I love the taste when roasting vegetables!), and dipping bread (mix in some salt, pepper, and pesto for a yummy treat).
great product, but broken shipment
Dec 30, 2017 | Posted By John from Atlanta, GA United States
We love the olive oil, but the packing for our 3 cases (yes, 36 bottles in all) was insufficient. A bottle of broken olive oil, with oil everywhere and broken glass, makes for quite a mess. Did not bother filing claim, just cleaned it up and used the remaining 35 bottles.
Nov 18, 2017 | Posted By Kimberly from Fenwick, DE United States
Not often you can buy a product that is super tasty, great for the environment and fantastic for the people. Olive oil that brings peace. Wow! How's that for a holiday gift. Keep up the wonderful work you do. Thank you.
Oct 28, 2017 | Posted By Laurie from Elmhurst, NY United States
I bought a whole case of this olive oil. I am kind of disappointed because, it is not aromatic. What I mean is that I buy lots of Portuguese oil and when I open a bottle of Portuguese olive oil, I can actually smell an aroma of olives. I will not buy this olive oil again!
Oct 26, 2017 | Posted By paul from philadelphia, PA United States
This is excellent olive oil, for cooking, baking, dipping. Pairs well with some of the West Bank ceramics offered in the Serrv catalog. Very good price, excellent product.
Try This Oil
Sep 21, 2017 | Posted By Barbara from Greenbelt, MD United States
There is something incredibly delicate and refreshing about this oil. You will find yourself using it in more and more ways. There are no limits to its ability to please!
Awesome Olive Oil, awesome Cause
Sep 19, 2017 | Posted By Ed from Midlothian, VA United States
Palestinians and Israelis working together? Impossible! Or maybe not. This olive oil is processed by both Israelis and Palestinian women working together. The oil is great and the group processing it fantastic! Oh and Serrv always get's my order packed and shipped quickly. Thanks!

Aug 13, 2017 | Posted By Kate from New Windsor, MD United States
I have been purchasing this organic/fair trade olive oil at the store in New Windsor (closed now) for years and it is the best tasting olive oil. I miss the store, but am happy to still be able to purchase this via mail. I highly recommend it.

I have sat in the seat of a SERRV exhibit at our church conference and we do sell items as well as display some of the crafts available..This Olive oil is always a hit, I use...and this year I ordered more..and still sold out! Love cooking with it! The flavor is always excellent!

very disappointed that case arrived with no labels on the bottle. I had to print out labels so people would know what they were getting. What's up with that?

I bought some of this olive oil at World Market at our church last year. Since I wasn't able to get any there this year, I ordered some for me and all my children.

This is outstanding olive oil, some of the best I've tasted. And it supports such a fantastic group of people. I give the small bottles as gifts and they are much appreciated....
Very good olive oil
Oct 26, 2016 | Posted By Cathy R. from Salt Lake City, UT United States
I use it all the time in cooking, and for drizzling over food such as hummus. It has a bit of a "bite" when tasted by itself, but that is not noticeable in food. Tastes very good in food. My order was delivered quickly, and was well-packed, it arrived in good condition, no broken bottles or other problems.
Oil to Make You Smile
Aug 24, 2016 | Posted By Barbara Young from Greenbelt , MD United States
I never thought I would come to be such an admirer of oil, but I am. Imagine a delicate-tasting oil that was created by cooperation between Jewish and Arab women! I give both small and large bottles as gifts, and have had nothing but rave reviews coming back from the recipients. Try it and you'll be hooked, I promise. Such sweet elegance for such a nice price!

Aug 23, 2016 | Posted By amira from New York, NY United States
Have been using this olive oil for several years now, despite the high price (took a star off for that alone). Good quality and taste. Perfect for salads. Easy, non-messy pour spout.

This is some of the best olive oil in the world! We give this size bottle as a gift each year ... with a prayer for peace and the SERR message. Always well received!

This olive is fantastic as is Sindyanna. It is inspiring to be able to support such a groundbreaking group such as Sindyanna. Thank you SERRV for featuring this product.

Organic Olive Oil

I bought a case of small bottles, which is almost exhausted. I gave a few bottles as gifts but have been using most in my breadmaking, salads, pastas and dips. It is so mild and wonderfully flavored it works anytime. I'm buying another case today.
Jul 3, 2012 | Posted By Nadine Steel from Three Rivers , CA United States
I bought a bottle of Sindyanna Organic Olive Oil from a discount basket in a specialty grocery store. It is now over two years past its "Best Before Date" and as sweet and good as ever. It has the most appealing flavor I've ever found in an olive oil. I spent a long time looking for it to buy online. I am so grateful to the women of Israel and Arabia for combining their love, inteligence and hope for the future in the enterprise that is Sindyanna.
