We Specialize in the Saffron and Argan Oil Trades
We import our saffron and argan oil directly from Morocco. Taliouine, Morocco is the heart of Morocco’s saffron industry. It is a mountain village situated near the Atlas Mountains. The rich volcanic soil combined with the ideal climate—dry, with brutally hot summers and cold winters—gives the saffron its potency, color and exceptional aroma. Centuries of developing agricultural skills has allowed farmers to produce some of the world’s finest saffron threads. By direct-sourcing, we skip the middleman and allow the farmers to keep 100% of the profits locally. Taliouine is the top saffron producer in Africa, and Morocco is the fourth-largest producer of saffron in the world.
Agadir, in southwestern Morocco, is famous for its beautiful beaches and argan trees. The trees produce the argan fruit which is harvested each spring and the kernel is toasted and cold-pressed to create culinary argan oil. The argan oil we source is a labor-intensive process produced by hand by a women-run cooperative using traditional methods or modern machines. With its smooth nutty taste, culinary argan oil is perfect for cooking, drizzling and dipping, is high in vitamin E and healthy fats, and is USDA Organic. Best of all, our support of these women cooperatives continues the initiative of empowering women in Morocco and provides them an avenue for financial independence.
