Traditional harvest areas being over-exploited, Nelixia, a Naturals Together™ partner for which Firmenich is a minority shareholder, decided to focus on developing a new responsible supply chain.
In El Paraíso region, farmers, grouped in a cooperative, mainly harvested pine and coffee until a disease stroke pine and decreased their income. As Styrax is already planted to provide shade for coffee, Nelixia and Firmenich initiated a program on Styrax to guarantee market security and fair price, while ensuring quality and sustainable practices through training.
