Cathi is a co-founder of Zaytoun, the social enterprise which pioneered sales of Palestinian produce in the UK.
She first visited Palestine’s West Bank in 2003, volunteering in rural communities to challenge land theft, and other human rights abuses. A passion for supporting sustainable, organic food and farming combined with her experiences there led her to co-founding Zaytoun on her return.
She remains excited about truly sustainable farming, equal access to land and clean water for all, and the vibrant culture of the Middle East. She now works part-time for Zaytoun, and is finally learning to grow her own food on a small allotment in Devon.
