Rodelle provides 3,500+ vanilla farmers with a fair handshake through our Farmer Partnership with Sahanala. Sahanala is an association focused on preserving the environment and increasing farmers’ incomes. The association has created a network of more than 3,500 vanilla farmers and is an employee-owned cooperative that gives 100% of profits back to each farmer-owner.
Rodelle team members work alongside trained agronomists to provide continued education for the vanilla farmers with the ultimate goal of increasing incomes which improve their overall standard of living. Additionally, Rodelle provides benefits to the farmers like a dedicated health program and pension fund.
Sahanala sells their vanilla beans for a fair price directly to Rodelle. This strong partnership establishes a farm-to-table vanilla extract that is traceable through farmer registration and strict purchasing practices. Rodelle is thrilled to contribute to Sahanala members, improve vanilla farmers’ quality of life and help to build a middle class in Madagascar.
