Sourcing

Firmenich sources Cardamom in Guatemala thanks to its Joint Venture in Central & Latin America, with Nelixia, leader of Cardamom EO and #NaturalsTogether partner.
Along Nelixia and a local NGO, Firmenich has implemented a long-term sourcing project on a responsible and traceable basis. The focus is on Cerro san Gil area, a natural reserve where deforestation is critical. The project managed to reach 100% of traceability, to increase local communities’ empowerment and incomes by reorganizing the supply chain without external intermediaries and establishing a drying facility easily accessible for Q'eqchis communities.
Trees have been planted for reforestation, offering a diversification of revenues for farmers and shade for cardamom fields, which increases the crop yield.
