Argan Oil Shipment via Casa Blanca Port

A delivery of Sidi-Yassine argan oil makes its way by truck to Casablanca. The city is a major shipping hub for morocco, and is where most argan oil leaves for central Europe and the UK by air and sea freight. Right now roughly 4,000 tons of argan oil are produced per year in Morocco. That means the processing of roughly 140,000 tons of fruit, generating 20 million work days, or several million new jobs. Those numbers are on the rise, and with the rapidly growing global interest, there is potential for exponential growth. Currently, Morocco only exports around 1,000 tons or one quarter of the argan oil produced, with additional sales of diluted oils slipping through the cracks and being sold to unassuming clients abroad.
