From Farm to Fork in Jordan
You can learn much about a country through its food. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has a beautiful multi-layered Food Story to share with the World that is both eclectic and meaningful. We welcome you on a culinary journey to experience all of our four seasons, and meet our local farmers, products and chefs in Jordan.
Mission & Values
Health Cuisine, Environment, Innovation and Socio-Economic Impact
Across the world, a new generation of health-conscious visitors, business travelers and meeting planners are looking for destinations that offer Sustainable Culinary Tourism. Our mission is to meet these guest expectations with curated venues based on four core values: Health Cuisine, Environment, Innovation, and Socio-Economic Impact. Our industry mission is to see more local produce served at hotels, restaurants and event venues across the country.
Experiences & Culinary Book
The hotels, restaurants, culinary calendar and farm tours on health-cuisine.com encourage a healthier lifestyle, offering more responsible menus with locally sourced ingredients.
In the spring of 2022 our story continues with the publication of the culinary book featuring 24 products, 24 farmers, 24 chefs and 48 dishes from all 12 governorates.
In Celebration of Olive Oil
By tradition, the olive mills in Jordan open each year on October 15th to produce healthful tasteful local Zeit Zaytoun, or Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for restaurants, consumers and even export. As such, From Farm to Fork in Jordan and JOPEA (the Jordanian Olive Producers Export Association) is organizing the second edition of the culinary campaign called “In Celebration of Olive Oil” starting on 7 October 2021, at the beginning of the season, and ending 26 November 2021 on World Olive Tree Day by UNESCO. The goal of the annual campaign is to celebrate a meaningful and sustainable culinary tradition that fits with the history, the land, the people and the future of the olive sector in Jordan, by putting Jordanian Extra Virgin Olive Oil central on the menu with participating restaurants and hotels across the Kingdom.
Knowledge Partners & Supporters
From Farm to Fork in Jordan is supported by an ecosystem of 50+ stakeholders and participants from the agricultural, tourism, hospitality, food & beverage and education sectors in Jordan, and is co-funded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
