Improving people’s lives
We are convinced that companies can make a positive difference. In southern India, where our main production sites are located, many people have a tough existence. We help our employees build a better future by investing in their well-being and safety through good working conditions, long-term contracts, overtime pay and a pension scheme. Moreover, we insure our staff and their families. Dutch Plantin is SA 8000-certified for this approach. We also support initiatives that help vulnerable groups, such as the Udavum Karangal foundation.
OUR PASSION? WORKING ON A BETTER WORLD AND A HEALTHIER ENVIRONMENT.
Cradle to cradle
A healthy environment, today and tomorrow. That’s our mission. A mission we can achieve through our cradle-to-cradle products. And that’s exactly what we do. After all, coco products have plenty of benefits for the environment. The growbags, blocks and briquettes made from coconut husks are a more sustainable growing medium than peat for example, because once peat has been dug up, the soil is irreparably damaged. Moreover, coco substrate has much lower CO2 emissions.
