Israel’s Netafim sets up its first North African factory in Morocco


Operating for nearly 30 years in Morocco, the world leader in micro-irrigation technologies has decided to expand its activities by setting up its new plant in Kenitra.

In Morocco since 1994, it was in 2017 that Netafim created its subsidiary thanks to the efforts of agricultural engineer Marouane Benmouama. This new plant, the first in North Africa, will be installed in Kenitra. It will initially supply the domestic market, before expanding to other countries in the region.

With a total cost of $ 2.8 million or 30 million dirhams, it will produce mainly drippers for watering. The new plant will start operations on March 2 and is expected to create several hundred jobs. The inauguration ceremony will take place in the presence of the Ministers of Agriculture and Industry, the Ambassadors of Mexico and Israel, as well as other personalities working in the agricultural sector and others.

During the event, several partnership agreements will be signed with the National Institute of Agronomic Research (INRA) and the Agronomic and Veterinary Institute of Agadir.
