We take great care to protect, nurture and process our herbs and we pay the same attention when it comes to selecting Ricola cultivation areas.

Soil conditions and regional climate play a decisive role in helping our herbs to flourish. Ricola also ensures that its cultivation areas are not situated near industrial sites or the road networks to avoid contact with harmful pollutants. Over 100 self-managed farms are under contract to Ricola in the Valais, Emmental, Poschiavo, the Jura Mountains and in Central Switzerland. Ricola agrees fixed long-term contracts and is a fair and reliable business partner for Ricola herb farmers.
