Description
Backed a multilateral technical cooperation project aimed at strengthening Morocco\'s olive oil sector, in particular by setting up inter-professional organizations and promoting production of high-quality olive oil.
Notes
As part of their continuing support to Morocco’s olive oil sector, FAO and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), in collaboration with Interprolive, Morocco’s olive oil industry association, organized a series of workshops to strengthen the country’s olive oil sector. The initiative brought together public and private stakeholders. Discussions focused on how to improve the sector’s inter-professional organization and ensure quality production. In the meantime, Interprolive started providing technical assistance to its members and launched a campaign to encourage Moroccan consumers to buy better quality olive oil packaged in bottles.
