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.).
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.
In 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.
Sourcing 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.
