According to a report published by the High Commission for Waters, Forests and Combating Desertification (HCEFLCD), Morocco, the medicinal and aromatic plant (MAP) sector plays a very important socio-economic role, with annual revenues generated from MAP export of about 550 million Moroccan dirhams (= about US$ 55.9 million).
The Moroccan MAP sector provides employment to local and rural communities generating an estimated 500,000 work days per year. The main export markets for Moroccan MAPs are the Frence and the United States of America but export quantities are increasing due to opening of other markets including, namely Japan, Canada, Switzerland, Spain, and Germany.
Some of Morocco’s more important MAP products are:
