Working alongside cooperatives and suppliers, we value responsible and sustainable sourcing programs. Working closely with our strategic partner in Madagascar, we have sourced the world’s first Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans and today our palette comprises both Organic and Fair Trade extracts and flavors. We have a fundamental understanding of the fragility of the vanilla eco-systems and the surrounding communities. This is why we are dedicated to working with local actors at the source. Firmenich can ensure 100% traceability. Our objective has always been to deliver the best quality vanilla with the highest level of control, and we have developed the most advanced methods for curing and extraction. Our multiple processes allow us respond to stringent demands with a multitude of quality extracts and flavor profiles. For cost-effectiveness, local compliance and service excellence, we process our beans in the United States and Europe, and 100% of our extracts are produced on our vanilla extraction sites to secure quality and traceability.
