CSR

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is important to Areej Aromatherapy. We have created alliances with, both, local and global organizations, and are active seeking other development projects in which to participate. We think there is a strong link between business and the community, and we strive to strengthen these relationships to set a positive example in Egypt.
