In Madagascar, pristine natural environments and flourishing fauna and flora coexist in perfect harmony. Malagassi runs their harvests in an attempt to protect this natural balance, which allows for the production of all-natural oils, free from any artificial additions or impurities.
The natural beauty and purity of their environment are major reasons why Malagassi is absolutely opposed to the use of any caustic chemicals or harmful pesticides. And, for the soil, single-culture crops are also fastidiously avoided.
As an added measure, Malagassi has even built distilleries within walking distance of every field in order to limit the use of gas-run vehicles. The less these kinds of machines operate on the fertile ground of Madagascar, the more pristine its environment can remain.
Providing for Their Community
In addition to providing excellent products, Malagassi Essential Oils also focuses on making a positive social impact in their community in the southeastern area of Madagascar. Their original project was a school called Ecole Malagassi, where they’ve seen much success in providing educational opportunities for the children in their community. They believe in investing in communities so that everyone can benefit from a better future; education is the key to generational growth!
With the support of Nature Packaged and its customers, Malagassi can continue to provide much-needed resources for children's education and development.
Malagassi mainly works with hired workers from the local communities. These employees are typically be retained throughout the entire year and rotated to different fields, depending on the season and harvest time of their products. Malagassi has been able to continually improve their pay over successive years and offers solutions to their employees’ needs and requests.
Long-term employees are also trained in the proper use of machinery and taught the full instructions for each plant’s distillation process.
