Training of Anjouan distillers

SHARING SKILLS - RESPECTING TRADITIONS

HONOR OF THE COMOROS

Supported by the French Embassy - PISCCA Project 2021-2022

 

It is essential for distillers to master and optimize their distillation processes, as well as their business management. However, with empirical and traditional distillation techniques, Anjouanese distillers are not always able to adapt to the current market needs.

That is why The Distillerie de Saloi, with the strength of its experience in the production of quality essential oils and in the adaptation of its products to the requirements of the international market, offers to pass on its skills to enable Anjouanese distillers to improve the quality of their product and enhance its value.

The future of the Ylang sector in the Comoros

Distillation is an ancestral art that requires a sharp mastery of processes and constant vigilance.

In the Comoros, the majority of distillers are small entrepreneurs who have passed on their know-how over several generations. This training is intended for them and aims to resume in a clear and precise manner good distillation practices in order to optimize their performance, save their fuel (wood or oil) and improve the quality of their oils.

Objectifs

This training also aims to protect our activity in the Comoros and to develop it in the best conditions. 

It becomes necessary to focus on quality, to professionalize and to improve the image of the Ylang sector of the Comoros.

 

Indeed, this image is in danger because of adulteration practices that have been rampant for years and are destroying our reputation. A general mobilization becomes essential and the first ramparts against these dishonest practices are the distillers themselves who must guarantee the quality of the oils they put into the circuit.

Dans l’ensemble les importateurs d’huiles essentielles d’ylang-ylang ont de réelles difficultés à obtenir des huiles de qualité supérieure et disposent d’une faible traçabilité sur les produits qu’ils importent.

« La distillerie de Saloi G.I.E » par la très haute qualité de ces fractions supérieures et de sa labellisation BIO est à ce niveau un interlocuteur de premier plan.

Notre nouvelle cible

 

Le marché de niche de l’aromathérapie en plein essor (+ 5% par an) nous garantie une très forte rentabilité surtout

que nous éliminons les intermédiaires car nous produirons et conditionnerons toute notre gamme sur place à Anjouan.

 

Rencontre avec les partenaires et vente en ligne 


Pour toucher nos clients nous allons mettre en place un site internet de vente en ligne, nous proposerons également nos produits sur les plateformes de distribution. Nous prévoyons également plusieurs déplacements pour rencontrer des collaborateurs en « BtoB » au travers de salons et foires internationales comme des groupements de pharmaciens et autres pour l’aromathérapie.
Ensuite c’est le processus normal de distribution avec l’envoi de nos échantillons pour agrément avant commande et livraison.   

Notre filiale de distribution AROM’YLANG basée en France va augmenter significativement sa force de vente pour conquérir ces nouveaux marchés

Enjeux socioculturels

 


Notre distillerie moderne, performante et rentable est un atout pour la région de Moya ANJOUAN. Ce nouveau projet n’est pas seulement pour la population de toute la filière un formidable accélérateur économique et social qui va se mettre en place, ça l’est aussi pour plusieurs catégories de métiers, (artisanat, éco tourisme, commerce local, ect...).

Emplois des femmes et prise en compte de la jeunesse


Main-d’œuvre locale a MOYA ANJOUAN
10 techniciennes et techniciens employés à la production, au conditionnement

et à la gestion de la vente au détail pour l’aromathérapie.

Ils seront sélectionnés parmi les femmes et les jeunes de la région.

Ils auront une opportunité de trouver un travail bien rémunéré et durable.


Autres phases d’extension
*Certification bio [cinq continents].
*Ecotourisme
*Créer la maison de l’ylang grâce à laquelle les touristes pourront découvrir les huiles, leur production et leur distillation.

Training

The training we have put in place for the year 2021/2022 allows distillers to better understand the distillation processes: quantity of water, distillation time, management of fire and heating, fractionation, management of degrees, yields , etc...

 

Distillers and their technicians come to the Distillerie de Saloi every two weeks for a full day of training during which we also remind them that it is essential to distill in well-maintained, clean and functional equipment.

At the end of the project, more than 300 professionals in the sector (distillers and technicians) shall be trained.

The distillerie de Saloi got in touch with the Ylang-Ylang industry inter-branch, the GIE Ndzouan Ylang as well as the NGO Initiative Développement with their FYDECO project to discuss the needs of distillers. Furthermore, the fact that we are in direct contact with many distillers has enabled us to identify their difficulties.

Objectives of this training

  • Improve the performance of distillers,
  • Save the island's resources (cooking techniques and homes habits using less wood, recycling water, creating compost, etc.),
  • Fight adulteration techniques,
  • Create a map of the Ylang sector in Anjouan (number of stills, capacities, hearths improved or not).

Agroforestry - Cultivation of firewood

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT -  SAVING THE COMORIAN FOREST

 

This year, we are setting up this project with one of our main customers, whose medium-term objective is to make the supply of wood a sustainable resource.

For this we will plant fast-growing trees on dedicated plots to harvest this wood which will be used to heat our stills for distillation. Thus the wood will no longer come from the forest but from our "wood yards".

Our goal is also to promote this method of growing firewood among Comorians in order to reduce the destruction of the endemic forest. 

Solutions

  1. Grow trees that can be pruned after 6 years;

  2. Propose a system of down payment on wood such as the rental of plots which will be reforested every 6 years;

  3. Identify potential landowners;

  4. Establish rental contracts;


Complementary actions:

  • Encourage operators to hedge the plots with fast-growing bushes and trees in order to harvest the kindling;

  • Promote fruit trees

Objectives of this project

 

  • Raising public awareness of the deforestation matter
  • Stop wild tree cutting
  • Create jobs and income for plot owners
