For over a century, Touton has developed its expertise in sourcing and selecting high-quality vanilla from around the world. Over the past decades, Touton has established a strong bond between local farmers and global food processors. Thanks to long-term partnerships, reinforced by our team in Madagascar since 2015, and our own curing station in Uganda, Touton has been able to strengthen its value chains while guaranteeing direct communication and providing quality and traceability.

Our ground-based sustainability programs support farmers’ living income by promoting good agronomy practices and crop diversification. The combination of vanilla and coffee production can provide in the long run a second source of income, while encouraging diversity and the protection of biodiversity.

The Sustainable vanilla Initiative (SVI) is an industry initiative aimed at promoting a long-term, stable supply of high-quality, natural vanilla produced in a socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable manner. The SVI is organized by IDH, the Sustainable Trade Initiative, in collaboration with the US-based Sustainable Food Lab (SFL), and works closely with vanilla exporters, producers, industry organizations, and public authorities worldwide to address issues of traceability, labor rights, and technical support for farming associations.
