Jacarandas, producer of ginger in Madagascar
Production of the raw material
Ginger is an ingredient used in traditional Madagascan cuisine. Farmers already grow it.
Harvests last from July to October. The first rhizomes are perfect for distillation. The more mature rhizomes are the best for the spice and ingredient range.
Every year, our local teams organise a distribution of rhizomes and supervise production in our networks of farmers. The best period for planting is November and December.
After being harvested, the rhizomes are washed, cut into strips and dried.
Turning the raw material into spices
The raw material is then transported to our factory.
When they arrive, strict checks are carried out on the ginger rhizomes. They are then carefully dried and sorted.
Depending on the product range, the ginger is then cut, ground or crushed with the utmost care to preserve its essential oil content.
Ginger from Madagascar develops zesty and citrussy notes while preserving a baking aroma.
