Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsUganda Aromatics is private company limited by shares, established in 2006 and started operation in 2014. The Company began with a one acre nursery that has been maintained following organic farming principles for over three years. This nursery serves as a seed multiplication centre for palmarosa grass, citronella grass, lemon grass, tea tree and eucalyptus citriodora as the major aromatic crops. This is to ensure sustainable supply of good quality planting material for the company and other farmers within the community.
In 2016, the company started involving private farmers in the organic cultivation of palmarosa, lemon and citronella grass. To date, over 35 outgrowers have been reached with more than 100 acres of aromatic crops planted.
The company got first Fair Trade Certification in 2018 and has since been able to acquire a truck which aids in the transportation of aromatic crop raw material from outgrowers to the processing center. The company also directly employs 11 workers in plantation and distillery.
