A fair investment in organic agriculture
Contract term of approx. six years
Investment starting at 4,120 euros
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. Assuming a normal investment development, the forecast return is 5.1 per cent (IRR*). This corresponds to a total cash return of 132 per cent.
You decide how much organic farming you want to do with us: you can choose the size of the investment property, respectively the amount of your investment in 0.2 hectare steps.
*IRR (Internal Rate of Return) is a method of dynamic investment calculation which is used to calculate the average annual return.

In Errachidia, Morocco, we plant and cultivate date palms and olive trees in accordance with the guidelines of organic farming. This way you contribute to climate and environmental protection, as well as to the economy and quality of life of the local people.
Stay up-to-date: We regularly report on the growth of your desert fruits and on our activities. Make sure to check out our reports, newsletters and the individual customer area.
The first proceeds from the olive harvest will prospectively be paid out to you from year three onwards. We expect that the harvest volume and thus the sales revenue can be increased annually. We expect the first date harvest in year six.

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.
Which yields can be expected?
Your investment finances the establishment of the agroforest during the first four years. Based on the selected olive and date varieties and the planned cultivation method, we assume that the olive trees will bear first fruits in year three and the harvest quantities can be increased annually. The olives are processed into olive oil, which also produces olive pomace. The first date harvest is expected in year six. The proceeds from the olive harvest will prospectively be paid out to you annually from the third year onwards. The best harvesting times are determined by the agroforestry management on site. The chart shows the yields that are possible within a normal development. After about six years the olive trees reach full production and the date palms bear fruit. This means that they achieve the best possible prices on the market. At this point they are sold and the proceeds are paid out to you. On the basis of the of the anticipated quantities, qualities and sales prices, net sales of a total of 27,290 euros per hectare are expected after the deduction of the project costs for years five and six (presumably a total of 4,040 euros per hectare). This corresponds to a total cash return of 132 per cent and a return of 5.1 per cent (IRR*). With Oasis 1 you invest in a natural raw material. Success therefore depends on natural factors such as climate, soil, etc., which influence the harvest quantity and quality as well as the sales revenues achievable on the market. Every change of a calculation parameter (e.g. harvest quantity, quality, price) has an influence on the overall result.
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.
