To introduce our UK customers to these products from Lebanon, we’ve included some stories behind the labels.
Learn about the owner producer of Zejd, the leading Lebanese brand we are working with. How the extra virgin olive oil is prized as a speciality olive oil amid a mass market of commercial brands. Find out about the delicious Lebanese green cracked souri olives. How pomegranate molasses is made and the reason why saffron is such an important crop for Lebanon. What is olive leaf infusion? And why is it good for you. Ingredients from Lebanon with lots of stories.
All of these ingredients, grown with professionalism and experience, in rich Lebanese soil, reflect the culinary history of this world famous cuisine which over the years has changed little but brings joy to so many.
Shorkk is a small, socially-minded family business based in Bristol, with roots in Scotland and Lebanon, run by Miranda and Philippe el Khazen.
Bringing you extra virgin olive oil, green olives, pomegranate molasses, saffron and olive leaf infusion. Essential ingredients for your kitchen cupboard from the eastern Mediterranean
Inspired by our children, this initiative is our response to the economic crisis which has hit Lebanon since October 2019. Our daughter has shown us how positive a dual heritage can be through her imaginative artwork which we’ve used on our website. Our son delivered a passionate address to his school to raise money for Impact Lebanon following the port blast in Beirut on 4th August 2020.
With our strong ties to Lebanon, we decided to do something positive. We know how popular Lebanese food is in the UK, and we think it is only right that more people know how good Lebanese ingredients are!
