Why HATUN

Turkish women account for nearly 80% of the seasonal olive field worker population where HATUN® made possible.

Hatun” is a Turkish name which was used to honor women during the Ottoman period. (1301 – 1922).

We chose “Hatun” name to recognize the generations of Turkish women who have cultivated and harvested olives for centuries.

Women Empowerment Through Jobs & Education

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 Project HATUN® provides scholarship, mentorship, and academic support opportunities to regional Turkish female students through HATUN® Fine Olive Oils and provide help in achieving educational dreams.

The Making of HATUN® Fine Olive Oils

Our 100% Natural, NON-GMO olives are cultivated in the (Aegean) Mt. Ida Region of Western Turkey, which produces some of the finest olives in the world.

From tree to bottle, our world class cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oils are produced using continuous olive pressing technology and maximum hygiene standards (ISO 9001, 22000 Certified).

HATUN® only produces limited-batch fresh crushed olive oils using all-natural herbs at the peak of freshness. 

Team Mission

Our team consists of global minded group of talented individuals who believe in the power of social entrepreneurship, universal equality, and global fair-trade practices.

We take pride in providing high quality olive oil imports to benefit our communities both in the United States and Turkey. Majority of European powerhouse producers can blend imported olive oils in bulk and label these products without crediting the country of origin.

We believe that promoting authentic imported products such as HATUN® will help close the trade inequality gap overtime and level the field for local farmers.
