Olive oil: professionals launch an appeal

Olive oil prices are set for an unprecedented rise, much to the dismay of consumers. According to several professionals, the meagre harvest, due to drought and delayed rainfall, will push up prices, with a liter of olive oil likely to exceed 100 dirhams.

On this subject, a farmer called on the relevant departments to ban the export of olive oil this year, given that it is a basic necessity for Moroccans.

This decision will bring prices down, enabling all households in different social categories to buy them.

It should be remembered that 38% of production takes place in the Fès-Meknès region, 22% in the Marrakech-Safi region, 10% in Béni Mellal-Khénifra and 10% in Tétouan Al Hoceima and Oujda.
