Highly sought-after for their sweetness and consistently high quality, Ziba figs grow in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province. They are fully ripened and sun-dried on the tree before being hand-picked and flattened into disks. Because they are naturally sun-dried, these figs are never too soft or too dry, they are just right.
A forgotten superfood, figs are loaded with Fibre, Calcium, B1 and B2, Copper and Iron. Like having a healthy dessert with no guilt!

Ziba Foods is an artisanal nut and dried fruit company that provides health conscious consumers with delicious nutrient-dense, sustainably grown and socially responsible food sources.
Working directly with small-scale farms and cooperatives, Ziba sources only the highest quality agricultural products, many grown wild without active cultivation. Combining traditional hand sorting with modern food safety standards, Ziba works to restore Afghanistan to its position as a world-renowned provider of nuts and dried fruit.
One of the many challenges facing Afghan fruit and nut farmers is an economic imbalance between the Afghan farmers who rely on sales to feed their families and the traditional traders who take advantage of farmers in need.
Ziba works differently, always paying for goods at the time of purchase. As soon as a farmer’s available harvest passes their rigorous quality control and inspection process, the farmer gets paid, in cash. This way of doing business protects the quality of products, bolsters the reputation of Afghan dried fruit and nuts, and allows a sustained relationship with farmers and cooperatives across the country, providing them with a reliable source of income, often for the first time.
