Ethical food

Dates are a big deal in Ramadan for Muslims. As they are the first food to eat when opening fast.
For those buying dates, please look on the packet for the country of origin. If you don't see it stated. Avoid them.
If you'd like to compound on your feel good factor. How about Zaytoun dates which are a non profit company supporting farmers of Palestine.
Go even further and purchase them from MADE in Europe. A organisation promoting green issues.
Link to buy some triple wammy dates
Nearly forgot to add. If you then spread the love by giving them out to people with the intention they open their fast with them you'll be rewarded for that persons fast also. It just keeps compounding.
