Focus on Sustainability
Sami-Sabinsa works with hundreds of small farmers on nearly 40,000 acres who grow significant amounts of high-quality raw materials for processing into branded, usually patented, ingredients. The company’s cultivation program began over a decade ago, after severe weather extremes wiped out the entire harvest for an herb the company needed to supply a popular ingredient. Contracting directly with farmers throughout rural India for the herbs required to make some of their products assures stable supply. Along the way, they have virtually adopted villages, supported schools, and improved rural infrastructure.
Through the years, they have fine-tuned the program, providing seed to the farmers, training them to grow herbs sustainably and cleanly, and guaranteeing a minimum purchase price no matter what Mother Nature throws at them. Farmers are taught techniques to naturally deter insects such as by growing pest-repellent plants among the herbs and given irrigation support when rainfall doesn’t cooperate. When herb prices go up, Sami-Sabinsa pays more for the harvest than the contracted amount.
Reforestation is a logical next step in Sami-Sabinsa’s sustainability commitment. With a view to ex situ conservation of the highly valued but neglected tree species Pterocarpus marsupium (Indian kino tree) two years ago the company initiated and funded a project that planted over 166,600 trees on 250 acres of forest land, which will be maintained over ten years into maturity. The award-winning program was recently expanded to encompass a larger area growing more seedlings.
