Since 2013, BIOPROTECT has been developing a partnership with Emile Noel Oil Mill (HEN) in France for the production of organic sesame. Since 2015, HEN, had the idea apart from the biological aspect, that the fair trade dimension needed to be taken into account in the partnership to have an impact on the socio-economic development of producers engaged in this dynamic of sustainable production. Since 2015, BIOPROTECT has adopted a strategy to promote the development of organic and fair trade sesame in its areas of intervention.

Depuis 2013, BIOPROTECT développe un partenariat avec l’Huilerie Emile Noel (HEN) en France pour la production du sésame biologique. Depuis 2015, HEN, a émis l’idée qu’au-delà de l’aspect biologique, que la dimension équitable soit également prise en compte dans le partenariat afin d’impacter davantage sur le développement socioéconomique des producteurs engagés dans cette dynamique de production durable. Ainsi, depuis 2015, BIOPROTECT se dote progressivement d’une stratégie visant à promouvoir le développement du sésame bio-équitable dans ses zones d’intervention.
