The Argan oil constitutes the flagship product of the Argan tree

The Argan oil is indispensable to the socio-economic development of the Argan rural region where locals have managed to sustainably utilize the tree’s leaves for feeding animals, its wood for fire, and its fine nut for its Argan oil production.

Based in Marrakech, Morocco Cérès is an export company partnering exclusively with cooperatives implementing a win/win business model to further promote the sustainable development of the region and its people via cooperatives.

Among the cooperatives, Coop Argan , an all women cooperative with more than sixty women based in the Essaouira’s rural region.

Women seek through these cooperatives to establish themselves, looking to achieve financial independence for them and their families.
