The Story of Food, Love & Heritage
At Jar Thuraya, we embarked on a journey driven by a profound passion for our Lebanese food heritage and a deep-rooted desire to make a positive impact. Our brand is more than just a business; it is a celebration of tradition, a tribute to the stories embedded in our rich culinary heritage.
One of the driving forces behind our brand is the compelling narrative behind traditional food. We recognized the power of sharing the stories of the farmers and women producers in Lebanon who have devoted their lives to cultivating and preserving these age-old recipes. By sourcing ingredients directly from these dedicated individuals, we not only pay homage to their hard work but also empower rural communities and bridge the gender gap in agriculture.
It all started because of Teta Maha, our grandmother, a mother of Seven, who spent her life pouring heart and soul into making artisanal preserves to her family. She inspired us to start and thrive to grow.
For her and all the Super Women in Lebanon...
Why we're doing it
Our purpose is deeply rooted in a steadfast commitment to empowering communities and nurturing the traditions that have shaped our culinary heritage. We are driven by the belief that food is not just sustenance; it is a vessel that carries stories, connects generations, and preserves the essence of our identity.
How we're doing it
We source artisanal preserves from women producers every season. We label the jars with eco-friendly labels that show the women's names, where they come from, the story of the product, and pairing recommendations. Our goal is to connect consumers around the world to Artisanal Gourmet Mouneh, prepared by Lebanese Women, and promote environmental awareness in production and consumption.
Throughout our journey, we have partnered with a diverse group of beneficiaries, collaborating on numerous projects and receiving support in various forms. We worked with Young women who recreated traditional recipes with a modern touch, we collaborated with local artists and we did joint partnerships with women-led businesses. Our presence around local markets and events has also made an impact in growing our community .
