Developing French Organic Agriculture

In a global context of an increased use of imports, LÉA NATURE works with French farmers in long-term partnerships to increase local supplies and support the development of the organic French sector.

Our teams are in charge of sourcing ingredients, carrying out a diagnostic analysis (agricultural, technological, social and environmental), and implementing projects to structure the various stages of processing (organization of manufacturers, transformation teams, etc.).

 

Our Sourcing Policy

  • Valuing biodiversity.
  • Facilitating the development of organic agriculture and fighting against the main obstacles to be overcome (GMOs, pesticides, etc.).
  • Encourage complete food independence for producers.
  • Maximizing added value within the country of production by promoting the use of co-products (deriving value from any parts of the ingredient that remain unused, i.e., argan pulp, which is usually discarded, but which contains some interesting active ingredients for use in cosmetics).
  • Guaranteeing that resources are sustainably managed (harvesting the exact amount necessary, privileging renewable resources, etc.).
  • Encouraging long-term partnerships with our suppliers.
  • Preserving threatened eco-systems and favoring improved economic conditions for local populations.

 

Food SourcingSourcing-alimentaire

LÉA NATURE purchases 67 of its ingredients from organic sources in France, and supports the structure of the organic agriculture with concrete commitments such as: pre-financing, long-term contracts, technical and economic support to the value chains and launching producer groups.

logo-producteurs-régionauxIn order to highlight our “Made in France” products, we have added a “Producteurs Régionaux” logo to our Jardin BiO brand packaging since 2010.  This logo allows consumers to know that 70 to 100% of the ingredients used to make our products are made and/or produced in France.

 

 

Cosmetics and Health/Nutrition Sourcing

sourcing-cosmétiquesSourcing cosmetic and health/nutrition products is based on four main concepts:  naturalness, efficacy, safety, and eco-friendliness.
Because we are constantly seeking to develop short circuits that allow us to maintain a direct bond with the producers, over 30 of our cosmetic ingredients come from regional sources located in the Poitou-Charentes or Drôme regions, or near Grasse.

The development of exotic vegetal active ingredients also contributes to protecting threatened ecosystems through the implementation of sustainable development initiatives in collaboration with local producers.
