Welcome to Givaudan's site dedicated to communicating information about our Vanilla Ethical Sourcing programme. In this site, you will find background information on vanilla, the importance in flavours and fragrances as well as some history into how Madagascar became the primary region for growing vanilla and why Madagascar has many political, social and economic issues to overcome. In addition, we will explain why it is important to ensure the long term sustainable supply of vanilla and Givaudan’s programme to facilitate this goal.

Givaudan’s Ethical Sourcing programme is part of Givaudan’s overarching Sustainability programme that includes a Raw Material pillar to ensure the responsible sourcing of important raw materials.
