Good products need the best ingredients. That is why we monitor our raw materials as they are growing.
Our source materials comply with current guidelines concerning the cultivation of medicinal and other plants. This includes our knowing where each plant originates, on what day it will be harvested, the weather conditions during harvesting, and whether it will be harvested manually or, in the case of larger quantities, by machines.
For many years we have built up nurturing close relationships with our supply partners. The majority of them are specialist arable farms or cooperatives, which provide a shared infrastructure on behalf of several agricultural businesses. As part of our regular on-site audit activity, we ensure that our requirements are complied with in terms of the conditions for cultivation, plantation care and harvest.
In addition, we attach great importance to sustainable cultivation and harvesting. This includes sharing our expertise with our global partners, and through this collective knowledge, contributing to future generations. Furthermore, our partner companies are audited by neutral organisations at regular intervals. In this way, we ensure that issues such as sustainable occupational health and safety, remuneration, careful handling of resources and other social aspects are taken into account.
