The SAID SAIFAN Company has achieved notoriety in the world of olive oil, olive oil soap and table olives by providing customers with premium quality olive tree products.
The company was founded by Said Saifan in 1939 in a very small shop in Tripoli in the Northern part of Lebanon near the Mediterranean Sea. The sale of olive oil and the production of local traditional Middle Eastern olive oil soaps were the primary business staples in those early days.
In 1949, Said Saifan, fueled by his passion for the noble olive tree and a business steadily growing because of good quality products, substantial business integrity and a solid reputation, registered one of the first olive oil trademarks in Lebanon and the Middle East under the name of KOURA which would later be replaced by the brand SAIFAN.
In 1959, Georges, the son of Said Saifan, began the very long journey of developing the Said Saifan Company toward what it is today by joining the company and carrying forward the values that his father established. Georges understood that the continuing growth of the company would rely on maintaining the values his father established: Excellent product quality, Business integrity, Reputation.
In 2000 the third generation of the Saifan family joined the management of the family business, with the same values and perseverance of its founders.
Our company has developed a very solid line of products distributed to our local markets and exported to many countries around the world.
