Givaudan inks deal with Mount Romance

A unique sustainability partnership focusing on sandalwood oil in Australia was unveiled by Givaudan as part of its new Innovative Naturals Programme.

Givaudan's partnership with Mount Romance, a producer of pure Australian sandalwood oil creates a sustainable supply of a specific grade of sandalwood oil, harvested by people from the Aboriginal communities in the southern part of Western Australia. Sandalwood is one of the most precious raw materials in perfumery, known for hundreds of years for its subtle and refined woody scent.

The sandalwood project, part of the Givaudan Innovative Naturals programme, was presented at a press conference in Paris, France. Since the partnership with Mount Romance was signed, Givaudan became the first fragrance house to use the aboriginal source of Australian sandalwood.

A premium paid by Givaudan for the supply of the indigenous grade oil is passed to the harvesters. This process is audited by the Songman Circle of Wisdom, an independent indigenous certification body. A fund has also been established jointly with Mount Romance to finance equipment which will help indigenous harvesters to continually improve environmentally friendly harvesting techniques.

The investment in the new equipment will allow a better collection. As a result, this project means reliable and traceable benefits along with economic and social improvements for these communities.
