A Purpose, a Way of Doing

In the 1970s, our group diversified itself into extraction and distillation in order to secure new markets for our historic agricultural activity. If the farmer needed to become an industrialist in order to survive, today it is the industrialist, which we have become, who needs his agricultural roots to meet the demand of our customers in terms of product quality, certified and traced origin, from the plant to the aromatic extracts. Quality today should no longer be only product quality, but the Quality of the conditions surrounding production, social and environmental conditions; with men in the centre. Developing our activities is therefore organized around these pillars at regional level, in France and through our partnerships abroad on our supply chain. More than a Purpose, it must be our Way of Doing, of producing and of committing ourselves to sustainable development.

In January 2020, Gazignaire signed its membership at the ”Human Resources companies without boarders” Club, an international NGO created in 2006, to promote respect for human rights at work throughout the subcontracting or production chain.

The Group pays particular attention to the management of its teams and people through its supply chains; and is committed through its social policy to implement and develop responsible human resources management.

Farmer for 5 generations, the group reaffirms its commitment to sustainable development and joins 4p1000 Initiative in 2020.

In our agricultural programs in France and abroad, we experiment and implement agroecological practices related to the carbon cycle in our ecosystems such as composting, non-tillage, agroforestry, syntropic agriculture, regenerative techniques and developing biodiversity.

  • A commitment in food safety, securing our plant sectors, for the climate.
