Your Online Ethical Grocery Store.
In 2020, Azkabasket.com was founded by Azka farms on the principle that healthy food, grown and cultivated locally and sustainably, is not only an essential part of healthy living, but something everyone deserves access to.
Contemplating the Qur’anic part from The Cave 19 (Surat al kahf): (and let him find out what food is purest there, and bring you thereof [some] provisions), Azkabasket.com aims to activate the role of participants in the food chain from vendors and individuals in applying food ethics from harvest and production to consumption. Helping to increase awareness of ethical practices in food sourcing.
As part of this vision of promoting more ethical cultivation and consumption of food, our main objectives include:
• Shortening the food chain.
• Providing a platform for buying regionally grown and produced food.
• Supporting local and regional farms that meet our ethical standards.
• Providing more transparency into food sources.
Azkabasket.com products are for people who want to go on a journey that brings people closer to the land we live on and the food we eat. Our model is about community building, healthy living and empowering each person to partake in shepherding a more sustainable world.
We strive towards shortening the food chain with regional farmers and vendors, who share our values enabling more ethical consumption, one basket at a time.
azkabasket.com gives you access to the most delicious seasonal, natural and organic foods. We partner with passionate farmers and vendors to ethically source produce from the region to your home.
