Challenge

Palm trees are a symbol of Iraqi heritage, as Iraq was historically one of the main producers and exporters for dates across the region.

Since conflict in Iraq exacerbated in 2003, palm trees suffer from decreasing production rates due to negligence, mismanagement, and/or diseases, leading to none or low profits for farmers and also for private and public spaces.

 

Solution

Nakhla offers comprehensive date palm tree service packages to farmers, households, municipalities, and CSR partners. These services include technical caring services (trimming, fertilization, harvesting, etc.) combined with date cleaning and packaging.

Nakhla’s services are offered for a long period of time (e.g., throughout the entire season) and include sustainable and organic input materials such as biofertilizer. The services are usually coupled with consultation to build the capacities of the palm tree owners to learn from and implement best practices.

The company has recently established sales channels for date products and seeks to start recycling palm by-products and waste.
