Palmyra was established in 2013 in Switzerland as a group project by three young entrepreneurs with the aim to bring different varieties of best quality dates to the European market. In order to do that, we travel all over the world – from the Middle East to South Africa and California – to visit date farms and find the best varieties. Palmyra wants to give its customers the opportunity to try different sorts of dates and to find their personal favorites. As our assortment is too wide for retailers and supermarkets, we only offer our dates in our online store, so customers can appreciate the whole product range in one place.
There are hundreds of date varieties in the world. A few are well-known, but most of the others you’ve probably never heard of. Dates are a great, versatile fruit, they’re an excellent energy source and a healthy, natural alternative to refined sugar. They’re easy to store and easy to carry with you as a healthy snack for whenever you feel you need an energy boost. In short, the perfect sweet treat. At Palmyra, we’re in love with our dates. Each variety has its own, unique taste and texture and everyone of us has their personal favorite (or two).
Dates are among the revered, nutritious dried fruit that are symbolic of vitality and growth, with approximately 600 varieties in the world, today. Dates have Energy, Calcium, Vitamin, Fiber and Iron in abundance.
The first civilizations in History 5000 years ago used to cultivate and consume dates because of their nutritious values. The culture then spread from Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley to all the continents, and dates are still consumed in the world after thousands of years.
Nature, delights and top quality are our main values. We are committed to serve you with the luscious assortment of delectable oriental products made from dates – a fruit that is simply divine!
Our high-quality dates originate from our farm which has existed since 1950 in al-Qasim, Saudi Arabia. We have over 28’000 palm tress and an ideal climate for crop cultivation. Around 70% of our dates are Sukari dates and the other 30% consists of Wannan, Barhi, and Um Kabar dates.
We pick, grade, package, and store our own dates. In addition we have developed our own picking, grading, and storage standards. This process assures quality and premium value.
