Our story begins with one date in particular, ‘The Queen of all dates’ no less or Deglet Nour, which is prized for its delicate caramel flavour and golden jewel-like appearance. Lighter in colour than its relatives, this delicious variety has had mouths watering for millennia.
We discovered it wasn’t possible to find these premium quality dates in the UK… Something had to be done. These dates were just too good not to share! So without further hesitation, we began a journey to share our experiences with as many people as possible: The Moreish D8 Company was born!
Dates have been grown in the Middle East and North Africa for thousands of years due to their many nutritional benefits – leaving them with a long, rich (and tasty!) story. In fact, people have been known to survive on this wonder fruit alone for months on end, their influence can be found in everything from architecture to cultural celebrations. Not bad for something centuries old!
ALL THE BENEFITS – WITH ALL OF THE TASTE…
All our dates contain… Fibre – essential for good digestion, Iron – to create and oxygenate red blood cells, and Calcium – for bone growth, nerve and muscle function AND A SOURCE OF POTASSIUM!
WE BELIEVE IN HARMONIOUS LIVING WITH MOTHER NATURE HENCE WHY BEING ECO-FRIENDLY IS AT THE CORE OF D8 PHILOSOPHY
