Elite Harvest: nearly 1,500 ha of investments scheduled
The Abu Dhabi agriculture group Elite Agro aims to become a major player in the Moroccan fruit industry. “We hope to invest in up to 1,500 ha of fruit and berry products within the next 5 years,” said Elite Harvest CEO Dr Abdulmonem Almarzooqi.
Based in Rabat, the Moroccan division has been contracting about 108 ha near Kenitra and 170 ha of pomegranates are planned in Beni Mellal, 243 ha of apples and pears in Sefrou, near Meknes, and another 91 ha in Ain Allah near Fez.
“We are also running in other opportunities to invest in Africa, like Mauritania,” Almarzooqi said.
