JAZ – The Mother Company
Regrowing Our
Land And Heritage

Southern Lebanon has been marked by decades of war and occupation. During that time, scores of farmers and producers were forced to flee the region and leave their lands and legacy behind, leading to growing gaps in the agricultural value chain.
But this started to change in 2014, when a group of people came together around a common goal: to develop the region’s rural and social sectors, and re-establish its agricultural heritage. This is how the Jezzine and Zahrani (JAZ) Development Company was born.
To date, JAZ has partnered with more than 100 farmers and producers in the region, helping them across all stages of the value chain: pre-harvest, harvest, processing, packaging, branding, and distribution.
