Madhuka harvesting nets

It has taken us nearly three years to build the strong relationships we have with the tribal communities in India.

As part of this, we have improved and encouraged the use of nets in the harvesting process. These nets result in productivity gains that are four times greater than by using traditional techniques. In addition, the quality of the Madhuka is improved, there is less wastage and the local environment is better protected.

For 2023, over 6,000 nets have been implemented and training programmes initiated to teach local people how to make the most out of this simple but very effective piece of equipment.

All our Madhuka products are sustainably sourced from these tribal communities. With each purchase, money is reinvested into improving their livelihoods.
