High Atlas Foundation
Certifies and exports organic walnuts and almonds.
HAA aims to certify and sell organic walnuts and almonds produced in the high Atlas Mountains, giving global buyers in Europe and the US direct access to the products. All proﬁts from the sale of products, after farmers’ and production costs, go to the High Atlas Foundation for reinvestment into community projects. The enterprise also encourages entrepreneurship and facilitates fruit and nut tree plantations through training and education. This “nursery to export” agricultural project is replicable and can be extended to other regions and products in Morocco.
