Jasmine Concrete is purchasing the flowers from local harvesters in Nilgiris and Dindigul districts of Tamil Nadu. Mimosa is collected from wild harvest in this area and then brought to Jasmine Concrete factories for extraction.
Harvests take place during two periods in the region: from March to May and October to November.
