Firmenich, Danida Celebrate Sustainable Vanilla Partnership in Uganda

Firmenich is celebrating seven years of collaboration with the development arm of the Danish government, Danida, for the responsible sourcing of vanilla in Uganda.

Danida has a particular interest in the role of business development and has a long-standing relationship with Uganda and Uvan Ltd., Uganda’s largest vanilla producer. Firmenich’s partnership with Danida created a sustainable supply of Ugandan vanilla through the education of farmers on improved farming practices as well as the implementation of social programs to improve living conditions. It was also one of the first public-private partnerships for responsible sourcing in the flavor and fragrance industry.
