Fair argan oil from Morocco

Tighanimine is a Moroccan women’s cooperative that produces argan oil. In November 2011 it became the very first argan oil producer in the world to be FLO Fairtrade certified.

During the certification process the cooperative relied on support of Ibn Al Baytar. This organisation helped compiling the file, paid part of the expenditure for drawing up the file and for conducting controls and also helped with communication.

The efforts of Ibn Al Baytar are part of a broader project that aims at boosting the turnover of three Moroccan cooperatives, among which Tighanimine. BTC’s Trade for Development Centre supports this project financially.
