Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsAD Coop is the main trading partner of FLO Fairtrade certified Argan oil from Cooperative Tighanimine Filahia in Morocco (women cooperative). As the fair trade Aragan nuts are collected from the families' own fields, product traceability and quality can be guaranteed. Since the beginning of the cooperation and thanks to the fair trade premium, the standard of living of women in the community has improved considerably. The fair trade relationship contributes to the empowerment of women in the community, but also provides means for practical improvement such as e. g. air conditioning equipment, seats, roof conversion to create a restaurant for tourists, which can provide additional income for the women. AD Coop supported the cooperative in its communications with FLO Fairtrade and helped them to understand the FLO criteria.
