Israeli Argan Oil & Argan 100
Will Israeli Projects impact the livelihood of Berber Womens Cooperatives?
Israel has been trying to establish itself in the Argan Oil business and is starting to grow the Argan tree in the Negev desert Israel. The project is part of a national program to encourage new Israeli settlers to establish new communities in more rural areas. Israeli companies have been developing what they call a “super strain” of Argan. They claim that this strain should survive in less harsh conditions and produce ten times more nuts than the trees in Morocco
