Our sustainable picking charter

In order to protect the environment and nature's capacity to regenerate itself, we drew up a sustainable picking charter, comprising eight points.

Based on quality criteria and respect for nature, our sustainable picking charter limits the impact of picking on biodiversity. 


EIGHT CRITERIA FOR OUR PICKERS


• Must have good botanical knowledge

• Pick plants in untouched natural areas, far from pollution

• Respect the plant and always leave part of it intact to ensure its regeneration

• Use appropriate harvesting tools

• Use specific containers for transportation

• Sort and check, to remove any foreign bodies

• Store the harvest in good conditions (light and temperature)

• Ensure the traceability of the raw materials
