Sindyanna of Galilee is an entirely female-run NGO that was founded in 1996 by Haifa native, Hadas Lehav. At Sindyanna, Jewish and Arab women work side-by-side, simultaneously creating economic opportunities and promoting coexistence between the two communities. As a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation since 2003, Sindyanna values both ethics and quality. The olives are cultivated by hand from organic groves nestled amid the hills and valleys of the Galile, and are cold pressed using both ancient and modern techniques and tools. There are no pesticides, chemicals or fertilisers added. In 2015, Sindyanna won the "Prestige Gold" award at the Terraolivio International Competition of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
