Supporting Producers

Our ingredients – and therefore our producers – are the lifeblood of L'OCCITANE. Were it not for their hard work, dedication and skills, we wouldn't be able to create such unique, authentic products. Dialogue, respect and transparency lie at the heart of our relationships with our producers. Some of our partnerships have lasted for over 30 years!

THE LIVELIHOOD OF PRODUCERS IS UNDER THREAT

IF WE DO NOTHING We’ll lose 400 farms in France and 1,200 in Europe.

Our mission as a brand

OUR AIM:

To have a Fair Trade relationship with all our Producers by 2025.

To make this happen, we'll focus on two areas:

1. Working hand in hand with growers to ensure all our relationships are built on fairness
2. Producing responsibly and sustainably together.

WHAT IS FAIR TRADE ALL ABOUT?

Fair Trade is all about stable prices and incomes, decent working conditions, empowering farmers and workers, and ensuring they get a fair share of the profits from their produce. It means supporting producers, helping to improve the quality of their lives, building a sustainable future for them and their families, and caring about people and the planet.
