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 every 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 has adopted 4,000 farmers through fair trade cooperative agreements to widen the benefits of trade by creating market linkages with poorer farming communities. We work with small and marginal farmers to promote their economic empowerment and help improve their livelihood.
About 1,800 women farmers participate in this program, through an organization based in the southern Indian in the state of Tamil Nadu. Through this program, we are procuring herbs like Bhringraj, Neem, Sarponka, Phyllanthus species, Punarnova, Cypruss species, and Tulsi.
By integrating these kinds of programs into our business requirement, we are able to ensure its sustainability. Our farming program objectives include:
- Creating economic empowerment by ensuring income generation for farmers
- Promoting good agricultural practices, including water preservation and sustainable organic farming without any form of fertilizers or pesticides
- Creating environmental awareness
