PARIS — Givaudan has just finalized its first farming partnership initiative, in Malaysia. It’s a long-term, exclusive agreement concerning patchouli sourcing in Borneo with local partner GaiaOne and Kebun Rimau Sdn Bhd.
“I feel the deal is very significant in that it is the first essential oil plantation of its kind not only in Malaysia, but in the world,” said Nicholas Graham, GaiaOne founding partner and director, and founder of Joe Boxer. “It is also the first long-term agreement made directly with a grower to sustainably plant dedicated fields exclusively for Givaudan, which is a landmark in the fragrance industry.
