“Hatun” is a Turkish name which was used to honor women during the Ottoman period (1301–1922). We chose this name to recognize the generations of hard-working Turkish women who have cultivated olives by hand and produced olive oil. We honor women farmers who account for 78% of the workforce in the Mt. Ida Region of Western Turkey through jobs and education opportunities.
Our social entrepreneurship mission supports women's equality by partnering exclusively with ISO Certified, dependable Turkish Fair-Trade Producers who are verified to employ a majority of women workers and provide fair working conditions. In return, HATUN, a U.S. based start-up offers scholarship opportunities to Turkish female students to pay tribute to regional women who make our journey possible.
