Our venture was born in 1996, from the hard work and passion of Mrs. Amale Harb, the founder, who started picking the best herbs, vegetables and fruits her garden had to offer, and used old-age methods to preserve them. Her small venture was built on the ancient belief that all good things are made by hand, hence the name “Ayadina” which translates into “handmade”.
Working out of her kitchen, she perfected recipes and used pure natural ingredients, hand packing every product in tastefully decorated jars and enchanting labels. From aromatic dried herbs to pickled wild cucumbers, she developed a range of pantry products and preserves, sold in selected high-quality retailers and delis.
As Ayadina’s line-up expanded, Amale developed a network of farmers and small producers from whom she sourced Lebanon’s most beloved ingredients and transferred her carefully curated knowledge to the team who crafts our products today.
Her son Roy and his partner Nathalie have joined hands to expand and perpetuate the family legacy into future generations. Working from a dedicated kitchen, they continue to preserve the goodness of seasonal ingredients, adding new varieties to the mix and developing new recipes, in line with evolving dietary needs and food safety conditions. Wherever you are in Lebanon or beyond, you can order your own batch of home-grown ingredients and enjoy their simple, wholesome natural goodness.
