The U.S. Embassy Supports Essential Oil Artisans to Export to France

Mabrouka Athimni, president of the women cooperative GDA El Baraka, who, with the support of the U.S. funded Collaborative Action for Handicrafts Exports (ACEA) project, has successfully obtained the ECOCERT Organic Group certification.

The ECOCERT certification represents a major breakthrough that will allow GDA El Baraka to export their products by completing their first export deal with the French company Ethiquable. 

The ACEA project works with Tunisian artisans, especially women in rural and underprivileged areas, to achieve sustainable economic growth and increase exports and employment.
