The Moroccan organic sector becomes organised

Fri 17/06/2016 by Richard Wilkinson
“We are committed to a state contract to develop the sector by 2020, with a budget of 1.2 million dirhams to do so.”

“We are working with organic farming professionals to create a truly dynamic sector,” enthuses the president of AMABIO, the Moroccan organic producers’ association.

However, he believes development of Moroccan organic farming is still complicated, due to several constraints: cost, certification, labour and market access.

“We are committed to a state contract to develop the sector by 2020, with a budget of 1.2 million dirhams to do so.”

Morocco’s organic crops cover 8,000 ha, of which 800 ha are olive orchards and 1,200 citrus.
