Orange Blossom: Our Fair Trade Sector
In the family of our Moroccan partner, the father of one is distiller to son Hafid who took over the operation, and cultivates more than 5000 oranges on 9 hectares of sandy soils in Kenitra (small town north of Rabat).
It is up to women to harvest by hand delicate buttons before their total hatched each year in April.
Since 2012, Melvita has supported this operation in the equitable approach demonstrated by ECOCERT ESR * and committed to a multi-year contract (fair price, purchase volume, technical monitoring). Equity with producers, conservation of biodiversity, rational and sustainable harvesting are guaranteed by strict controls, through the equitable certification by ECOCERT * ESR.
* Fair trade in solidarity and responsibility, according to the standard available on the site www.ecocert.com
