Kanz is a line of natural and ethical Lebanese food products and artisanal crafts.

Kanz aims to revive Lebanon’s culinary and cultural narratives by empowering the custodians of our heritage: craftsmen and women. As a platform for job creation, Kanz pledges to transmit skills to Beit el Baraka’s families.

Every product tells the stories of these small-scale producers, their villages, their traditions, and their commitment to ensuring dignified living standards for their children.

Kanz brings together food, crafts, heritage, and traditions that weave our culture while focusing on practices with high social impact.

All proceeds from Kanz go to support Beit el Baraka’s mission to create jobs for dignity.



Grape leaves, a popular staple of healthy Lebanese cuisine, are rich in vitamins and minerals. Widely used in the Mediterranean diet, vine leaves are often stuffed with rice and minced meat, or with rice and chickpeas for a vegan-vegetarian version. Ancient Greek literature mentions stuffed grape leaves (warak arich) as a dish served to the gods of Mount Olympus. Other references report that Alexander the Great made vine leaves part of his army’s diet when they marched into Thebes in 335 B.C., which led to their introduction to the regions he conquered. The Ottomans later spread this dish to Central and Eastern Europe during the 14th and 15th centuries.
