A fair investment in organic agriculture
Positive impact on local and global climate
Oasis 1 is a socially responsible investment with a positive impact! With Oasis 1 you invest in the establishment of an agroforestry system with organic olives and organic dates in Morocco. It is a high-return investment in organic farming which, at the same time, creates benefits for the climate, the environment and the local people.
We are building organic farms – join us!
With Oasis 1 you invest in the ecologically and socially sustainable cultivation of olive trees and date palms for the production of high-quality organic olives and dates.
At our project location in Morocco, one half of your Oasis 1 area is planted with date palms and the other half is planted with olive trees, in accordance with the guidelines of organic farming.
You will receive the proceeds from the sale of the olives (oil and pomace) and dates as well as the proceeds from the sale of the productive olive trees and date palms at the end of the contract term.
Olive trees are planted in Morocco.
A is for Acacia - Z is for Zapatero: our tree encyclopaedia provides information on which trees we plant in which project area and also which characteristics the planted tree species bear.
Why invest in organic olives?
The consumption of olive oil has been increasing steadily for decades: While 1.4 million tons of oil were produced in 1990, ten years later it was already 2.6 and today it is more than 3.1 million tons. With Oasis 1 ForestFinance is going to plant two varieties: Arbequina and Arbosana. They are characterised by a spicy flavour, high resilience and high productivity. Market analysts expect a growing demand as well as a shortage in the supply of olive oil (especially organic quality). Thus, we expect good prices and harvest yields.
Why invest in organic dates?
Morocco harvests around 110,000 tons of dates annually, but still has to cover 30 per cent of its date demand with imports. As demand for dates far exceeds supply, more and more large, industrially operated plantations are replacing traditional cultivation - not only in Morocco. With Oasis 1 we want to support traditional, sustainable cultivation, combined with organic farming. The Medjool date cultivated by ForestFinance in Morocco is one of the most popular varieties worldwide. Organic dates cost on average up to ten euros more per kilo than conventionally produced ones.
Why is this investment in organic farming sustainable and fair?
