Sustainability - Securing the Future Together

Sustainable development means meeting the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations from also meeting the same needs (World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987).

FLAVEX produces natural botanical extracts which means we rely on a continuous and secure supply of high-quality natural plant materials. This differs from industrial over-farming which is one of the main causes of environmental and social damage and of the loss of biodiversity.

FLAVEX focuses on an ecologically friendly and, where possible, organic and local cultivation.Thanks to this and our long-term relationships to our trusted suppliers we are able to meet social compatible conditions and sustainable products for all actors in the supply chain. We are convinced that sustainability does not only guarantee outstanding quality but also offers our customers a competitive advantage.
