We’re proud to have a transparent and ethical supply chain that promotes people and biodiversity.

The story of Lavender

Sourcing where plants naturally grow, paying fairly for crops, including those lost to bad weather, local communities are able to find work.

The sun is setting over a large field of lavender in Moldova, casting a warm glow over long rows swaying in the breeze. The sky is bright blue with a few clouds drifting past and there are green hills in the distance.
The principle of conducting business for the good of people and nature is in our DNA.
