In Khemisset,

On our 450 acres plantation all crops have been converted to organic farming since 2003. The main plantations are: 110 acres of Bitter Orange trees, Mimosa, Geranium, Jasmine, Laurel, and Carob. Several distillation and extraction workshops process our farm's crops as well as a variety of collected raw materials (Chamomile Wild, Beeswax, Cedar sawdust,...).

In El Kelaa M’Gouna,

This area keeps an ancient tradition of growing hedges of damascena roses around its river irrigated gardens. In addition to Rose concrete production, the factory distillates large quantities of Armoise (Artemisia herba alba)

Active in local development

Since 2007 the company has also started a series of actions backing up and encouraging local villages and communities projects
