Himalaya's commitment to the global community is part of our core values. Providing fair trade and making a positive difference in the lives of everyone who contributes work or resources to Himalaya, is both an investment and a mission that we have been dedicated to since our beginning.
Himalaya works both directly with farmers as well as through Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) through fair trade cooperative agreements to widen the benefits of trade by creating market linkages with poorer farming communities. This work helps to econmically empower small and marginal farmers and furthers their livelihood.
Our farming initiatives are aimed at:
- Providing herbs of homogenous quality cultivated with traceability using autthentic starting material.
- Sustainable sourcing.
- Ensuring adherence of cultivation practices to Good Agricultural Collection Practices (GACP) guidelines.
- Production of authenticated seeds germ plasm.
