PurDate, based in Tunisia, North Africa, is making life sweeter with date sugar, a more nutritious sugar. Their sugar product contains only one ingredient– sundried, crushed-up organic dates. An alternative to highly processed traditional sugars, their product is all natural and high in fiber, magnesium, potassium, amino acids, antioxidants, and other trace minerals.
Date sugar can be used for cooking, baking, and more. Check out PurDate’s extensive collection of date sugar recipes.
PurDate is committed to their local community, employees, and environmental preservation.
Partnering with a supplier who holistically works within their community, they are able to provide opportunities to youth through educational development projects.
Over 80% of their employees are women with extensive knowledge of dates, who are further trained and equipped to move into leadership and other roles. Additionally, although most work in their sector is seasonal and pays minimum wage without benefits, PurDate pays their employees living wages and offers year-round contracts as well as healthcare and retirement benefits.
PurDate reduces food waste by sourcing their dates from delicious, local dates that would otherwise be wasted due to aesthetics that disqualify them from grocery store sale. Furthermore, their products are locally sourced and are dried by the natural heat of the sun, minimizing their environmental impact and ensuring sustainable production processes.
