Rose oil, organic (analogcert.) from Afghanistan

We are proud to offer rose oil, organic (analogcert.) from Afghanistan. Out of our partners’ hands, Afghan Rose Ltd.

Due to long-lasting conflicts in Afghanistan, it is still difficult to practice sustainable agriculture there. Unfortuantely, it’s still more lucrative to plant poppy for opium, instead.

Thus, Welthungerhilfe has initiated a rose oil project in Afghanistan in 2004. The project concept is both simple and brilliant: Afghan farmers switch from poppy cultivation to rose cultivation. Then, the oil extracted from the roses is internationally traded. Thereby, Afghan farmers get alternative sources of income to safeguard their livelihoods.

WALA realized this concept would be both a socially and ecologically sustainable way to secure livelihoods in Afghanistan while promoting sustainable agriculture. Therefore, WALA has been actively supporting the Afghan rose oil project with know-how and expertise since 2006.

Now we are the first offering organic rose oil from this sustainable rose cultivation in Afghanistan.
