Exhibitor profile

The Argane production area encompasses the Arganeraie Biosphere Reserve, which has been recognized by UNESCO since December 8, 1998 and includes 234 rural communes within nine provinces, namely the provinces of Taroudant, Essaouira, Tiznit, Agadir-Ida Outanane, Inezgane-Aït Melloul, Chtouka Ait Baha, Safi, Chichaoua and Guelmim.
The argan forest covers an area of about 830,000 hectares. It plays an important ecological role in desertification mitigation in addition to its socio-economic role by providing an income for thousands of rural families.

Argan is the traditional name in Amazigh for natural oil obtained exclusively from the fruit kernels of the argan tree excluding oils obtained using solvents, by esterification processes, or by any mixture with oils of other kinds. Argan oil is characterized by between 43.3% and 49.1% oleic acid (Omega 9) content, linoleic acid (Omega 6) fat content between 29.3% and 36.0% and a tocopherols content between 40 and 90 mg / 100 g. Argan has a taste of grilled nuts.
