The founder of Nomade Palize, Mr Mozafari, originates from Iranian Kurdistan, where nomadic merchants hold long liaisons between the Middle East and Europe.
A Bridge between East and West
For many years, Mr Mozafari has lived in France. There he quickly realised that organic agriculture would be
a major issue for the preservation of consumer health. He met stakeholders of the french organic sector,
offering to provide traditional and natural products from his native country. Faced with a positive response,
he has been able to develop the distribution of such products since the 2000’s. However, to finalise his project
it was necessary to convince Iranian farmers that producing traditionally and with natural methods was not enough
to obtain the official organic certification. He was able to share with local producers the value of the “Bio”
approach, making them understand that it was essential to have certification of authorised bodies,
explaining that the purpose of global control standards ensured quality and traceability without the use of

A committed and responsible actor
For each product and its area of supply, a technician or an agronomist will be recruited by NomadePalize to ensure the establishment of production campaigns and quality monitoring. This regular contact is a necessary resource for monitoring the defined projects.

Our commitments to support local producers:
Technical support for the producers
Diversification of products and of the income of families
Improvement of cultural technical routes: producers supported by the counsellors recruited by Nomade Palize
have established Lucerne cultures sheltered by date palms, thus allowing the increase of
nitrogen inputs to the roots of the trees, limiting the drying of the soil and providing an additional resource
of cattle feed.
Many irrigation programs to be put in place
Financed infrastructure, buildings, improved access paths, distillation units, etc.
