Driving value throughout
the supply chain
Sal kernel finds several uses across various applications, ranging from bakery to cosmetics. Available abundantly across Northern and Central India, they are a major source of income for tribals and forest dwellers in Odisha, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh.
At Manorama, we leverage our intricate distribution network to sustainably source Sal seeds, building strong relationships with the local tribal communities in the process. Our commitment to upholding high standards in responsible Sal seed sourcing, drives us to devise 100% traceable systems to ensure fair compensation for all our suppliers.
Empowering local communities
We collaborate with several local women cooperatives and self-help groups (SHGs) to sustainably source superior quality Sal seed through our dedicated supplier network from thousands of villages across Northern and Central India. We are committed to the upliftment of local people and, therefore, along with aiding their livelihoods by purchasing the seed kernel directly from them, we also train local residents and cooperatives in sustainable harvesting methods that help protect Sal trees.
