Givaudan gets certification for its clove leaf oil collection network in Madagascar

Givaudan announced the first ‘Fair for Life’ certification of its clove leaf oil collection network in Madagascar.

The Fair for Life certification programme for fair trade and responsible supply chains is conducted by the ECOCERT Group. It aims to enforce good working conditions for all participants in the supply chain, and validates the social and environmental responsibility of the collection network. Fair for Life also covers fair prices and the administration of a fair trade premium for community development projects, while ensuring full traceability of the certified raw material.

By taking this first step to certify our collection network, we are further demonstrating our commitment to responsible sourcing practices and, in line with our 2020 strategy, partnering for shared success with our communities, suppliers and customers. Fair for Life is a guarantee that Givaudan Madagascar and its local partners ensure the traceability of clove leaf oil from the farm to the new processing plant NATEMA [1],” said Givaudan CEO Gilles Andrier.

Givaudan introduced its Responsible Sourcing Policy in 2016, the first of its kind in the flavours and fragrance industry, as an expression of its commitment to providing safe products of consistent quality that meet or exceed customer expectations, dealing ethically and respecting human rights wherever it does business. The company has set itself the goal of compliance in the four core areas of responsible sourcing: health and safety, social, environment and business integrity.


[1] NATEMA (Natural Extracts Madagascar) is a joint venture between Givaudan and Henri Fraise Fils et Cie, its longstanding partner and a well-established company in Madagascar.
