Agadir - Argan Womens' Co-operative


I am visiting Agadir in March and would love to visit a Womens' Co-operative producing Argan Oil. If possible I'd also like to take some photos and write a piece for my travel blog.

Can anybody suggest an authentic Argan co-operative that is happy to have visitors please?

I'm over 9-16 March.

Many thanks

Hi Suzanne,

I haven't heard of Womens' Co-operative producing Argan Oil as such., But there are villages where local women produce idenpendtly no more so than Argana Village some 70 kilometer northe west. of Agadir. Grand shared taxi from Agadir would the cheapest option.

In Souk Al had in Agadir, you would also see women grinding the Argan nuts into Argan oil. They would be normally sitting in front of their husbands shops inside the Souk.

You must have a good noise for smell to detect real mccoy. There are many fakes or diluted alternatives which people mistake for the real goods.

Good luck
