The Date Co. is a local Vancouver, BC, company with the simple mission of sourcing the highest quality dates from regions in the world where they grow best. Dates have been a staple fruit in the Middle East for centuries, and there are over 200 varieties. The most common in North America is the Medjool, known for its large meaty texture, whereas there are others that are smaller with a subtle caramel sweetness like the Khalas. Dates have long been considered a super-fruit to be consumed on its own, or as an ingredient used in variety of different ways. We would love to hear what you have to say about our products, and if you want to learn about dates, we are happy to talk about it all day long!
