Our Story

Hi, my name is Mustafa. I launched Palm Bites in 2019 to get my dad back to work after he was forced to retire due to his age. We utilized his quality assurance background with my love of dates to create the best date products in the market.

How It All Started

After 20 years at his company, my dad was forced to retire due to his age. He was devastated, as work was his life and as first generation Iraqi immigrants, there is no such thing as a retirment plan. So he applied to numerous jobs but was usually over qualified or too old for the role that was hiring.

After 3 years, he lost hope. I hated seeing my father, someone I looked up to all my life, feel unwanted and unworthy of work.

Dates have always been part of our daily routine. We had 2 palm trees in our front yard in Baghdad that we harvested twice a year. Growing up, I had date syrup mixed with tahini for breakfast or as a mid-day snack. Culturally, we gift dates for special occasions, and we offer it with a tea or coffee when guests come over.

The health benefits coupled with the cultural and religious significance of dates made them a staple in our household and lifestyle.

Between the urge to get my dad back to work for the sake of his mental health and our family's love for dates, Palm Bites was born.

We pride ourselves on having the best date products, delicious and healthy, with elegant packaging and utmost care for our customers and their experience. From our online store to Café Palm Bites, you'll always receive delicious, fresh, and unique treats.

Thank you so much for your support, it means the world to us.
