Coopérative d’huile Argan
An argan oil cooperative is an establishment where local women in Morocco produce argan oil from argan nuts. Argan oil is a precious oil extracted from the nuts of the argan tree, a tree indigenous to the southwest region of Morocco. This oil is widely used in cooking, cosmetics and traditional medicine for its nourishing and beneficial properties for the skin, hair and health.
Argan oil cooperatives have an important economic, social and cultural role in the argan-producing regions of Morocco. They allow local women to earn an income by participating in the production of argan oil. These cooperatives often aim to support the economic emancipation of women and improve their living conditions by providing employment and training opportunities.
The main stages of argan oil production within a cooperative are as follows:
Nut collection: Women collect argan nuts from the trees. These nuts contain seeds from which the oil will be extracted.
Shelling: The nuts are shelled to extract the seeds. This can be a laborious and delicate process.
Roasting: The seeds are then roasted to develop their flavor and facilitate oil extraction. This step can also influence the color of the oil.
Grinding: The roasted seeds are ground to obtain a paste called “amlou”. This paste is then pressed to extract the argan oil.
Separation: The oil is separated from the paste and filtered to obtain a pure, high quality oil.
Use: Argan oil can be used for cooking, skin and hair care, and in the production of cosmetic products.
When you visit an argan oil cooperative in Morocco, you can learn about the production process, witness the different stages, and purchase argan oil and other derived products. It is also an opportunity to support local communities and contribute to the sustainable development of the region.
