A new factory opens in Tunisia

SARAYA established a distillation factory in 2018 and has been selling products using essential oils such as neroli and geranium. In May 2021, SARAYA established a local subsidiary, Saraya Natural Products Tunisia, in the capital city of Tunis, and last week, a new factory was opened in an industrial park in Manouba, a suburb of Tunis, scheduled to coincide with the TICAD8.

The new plant will manufacture and sell olive oil from olive varieties native to Tunisia, as well as cosmetics and alcohol hand sanitizers, with the aim of developing sustainable products while taking environmental conservation into consideration. We hope that it will bring positive influence to the country of Tunisia and its people as well!
