Creation of Jacarandas, the fruit of a shared passion for raw materials
Matthieu Richard and Mima Chateauneuf worked together for several years in Madagascar, in the field of tropical raw materials and essential oils. Complementary and passionate about their area of work, they share the same values and vision. This professional relationship led to the creation of Jacarandas, specialising in the production of Madagascan spices and essential oils.
First organic certification
In keeping with our sustainable approach and high quality standards, we obtained our first organic certification for two key products: cinnamon and cloves.
Jacarandas is a pioneer in the production of organic spices in Madagascar.
Opening of the French structure
Matthieu Richard opened the sales and logistics division, near the port of Marseilles. The sales team offers a client-centred approach, allows us to be more responsive and simplifies logistics.
