In Burkina Faso, Sesame crops were harvested early October!
The plants have been bundled and dried for a few weeks. The sesame seeds were then separated and are now ready to be processed into oil. OLVEA buys its sesame seeds directly from producers organisations before grinding them in its green factory in Bobo Dioulasso.
In 2019, for its fair trade Sesame seed oil supply chain (certified by Ecocert according to the Fair for Life standard), OLVEA worked with more than 3,850 sesame seed producers.
