Growing success for Madagascar partnership
Our NATEMA (Natural Extracts Madagascar) joint venture processes raw materials in the country of origin and this in turn supports the wider local economy.
Rather than export clove leaf oil from Madagascar for processing, we foster local value creation by transforming clove leaf oil at the NATEMA facility.
Production at the facility has grown since sales started in 2017: the output of this key ingredient for our creations has increased from less than 50 tonnes to 300 tonnes, which means NATEMA is now Givaudan’s main supplier of clove leaf oil derivatives.
Our NATEMA joint venture is an excellent example of a successful and growing partnership.
