A strict supply chain

Since 2006, Melvita has sourced its argan oil from an argan forest in Morocco. The land is certified organic and the oil is Fair Trade approved by ECOCERT Environnement, in accordance with the ESR* standard.

AUTHENTICITY, TRACEABILITY AND QUALITY


In order to verify the authenticity of our argan nuts, Melvita carries out in-depth analyses in partnership with a French institute specialized in the characterization of plant oils. 







RESPECT FOR MAN…


For over 10 years, Melvita has chosen to use organic, fair trade ingredients that comply with the Ecocert ESR standard*. This ethical approach enables Melvita to support local employment: 200 producers, 24 jobs in the processing centers and 1,200 indirect beneficiaries in the families of the women who work in this argan industry. 


Grouped into two cooperatives, these women maintain an ethical, fair trade relationship with Melvita (ESR* certification). This includes three-year contracts, a 50% down payment on orders, technical and development support, fair pay (20% higher than the farming minimum wage in Morocco for the women who shell the nuts), etc.  







… AND BEES


Melvita is helping to protect bees in Morocco. It works with the women who gather the argan nuts to help them develop their own beekeeping business.
