Sourcing

Traditional harvest areas being over-exploited, Firmenich decided to work with Nelixia through their Joint Venture, to develop 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, Firmenich initiated a Deep Roots program. It guarantees market security and fair price, while ensuring quality and sustainable practices through training.

This approach provides better income for harvesters and full traceability.
