Morocco Gold Joins SABA

Posted by

We are delighted to announce that Morocco Gold is now a member of the Scottish African Business Association.

The Scottish Africa Business Association (SABA) is a not for profit, independent, trade and export focussed organisation. SABA was established based on feedback from African governments that the UK was too large and fragmented to allow easy engagement with potential trade and investment partners.

SABA’s objective is to help deliver tangible commercial outputs which are beneficial to African countries and Scottish companies. They work closely with members, African Governments and local networks to help identify, research and define specific opportunities.

The SABA team and its network of Partners and local contacts are all proven professionals with vast experience across a range of sectors. Given the specific African sectoral needs and Scotland’s strengths and capabilities in these sectors, SABA takes a targeted approach to create a win-win for both Africa and Scotland. Such sectors include Energy (Power, Oil & Gas and Renewables), Agriculture, Food & Drink, Education, Healthcare, Fintech and others.

In 2018 the Scotland Africa Business Exchange hosted the African Union Heads of Mission Meeting in Edinburgh over three days. Eighteen African Heads of Mission and their trade teams visited Scotland, in the largest event of its kind, to engage with the Scottish government, business and institutions, across multiple sectors, to learn more about Scotland’s expertise and the trade and exporting potential.

Morocco Gold Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Morocco is a country of rich geographical and cultural diversity. It is also a country undergoing major transformation, celebrating it’s rich heritage, whilst modernising key sectors of it’s economy. This includes it’s thriving agricultural sector, which currently employs around 40 percent of the nation’s workforce, making it the largest employer in the country.

Morocco Gold is a team effort, all the way back to the women in fields who harvest our olives by hand. Women make up, on average, 43 percent of the agriculture labor force. Empowering women to participate in agriculture gives them greater influence over household income and expenditures which typically helps to reduce household poverty and benefit children.

Morocco Gold is proud to support the employment of women in agriculture.

We are also proud to support sustainability and the environment, both at the source of our olive oil, also in how this is delivered to our customers.

At a time when there are so many inter-cultural tensions, our multi-cultural team also demonstrates what is possible when people from different backgrounds work together to deliver meaningful programmes.
