Our project : The first Fairtrade certified in the area of dates worldwide, the first certified organic and biodynamic dates in Tunisia. Aims at sustainable socio-economic development environment in the oasis of the Sahara in Hazoua.
The Queen of the dates DEGLET NOUR
In Hazoua, a oasis in southern Tunisia where even today tradition is alive, have small farmers founded a cooperative for working together and producing dates in Demeter quality.
The cooperative supplies them to the export station Beni Greb. There the dates are sorted, cleaned, dryed and packed for export.
Only exclusively selected, organically grown dates from the Tunisian oasis Hazoua of the variety "Deglet Nour" are used. "Deglet Nour" is the queen of the dates and means "finger of light".
The dates are produced in a three floors system with vegetables on the groundfloor, in the middle fruit-trees are grown, and in the third floor up to thirty meters in height date trees are cultured. In addition, there is a recovery of the consumed water. This protects the climate, because it prevents against desertification.
Dates from Tunisia, which not only taste delicious but are also cultivated a environment friendly way.
Enjoy it twice!!
