Our Sourcing Methods
Our responsibility is to provide the best herbal botanicals, and to take care of the environment and the community while doing so.
We have partnered with various farms and started our 100% organic farm in Kaduna, Nigeria to offer only the highest quality of produce.
Our major driving force is finding only the highest quality herbs and botanicals available.
All of our partners meet our rigorous specifications and our team of experts ensures that they adhere to the protocols.
Driven by our goal of improving the position of marginalized social groups worldwide (particularly in developing countries), our sourcing guidelines support and enrich the livelihoods of thousands of small farmers (mostly women) and workers through fair pricing and an additional, allocated-type of dividend: development premium funds.
Fair trade development premiums are placed into a separate communal fund that workers and farmers can use to improve their social, economic, and environmental conditions.
These premium funds can be deployed at the community's discretion to enhance the local economy (by investing in farm improvements, equipment, or employee housing), or to enrich the community directly (through the construction of schools, healthcare facilities, or vital regional infrastructure, such as roads and bridges).
We work with over 300 different plants, and each of them has a custom process taken from harvest to packaging. We use third-party laboratories to test and provide the necessary resources to ensure that only the best quality plants are used.
Nature provides tirelessly, and we work tirelessly to ensure consistency in purity and quality is maintained.
