Producing these flowers, each with its inimitable scent, while respecting nature and mankind, is the basis of our commitments as growers in the Extraordinary Flowers of Grasse Association.
We are all signatories of a common charter in which we advocate solidarity, transparency, quality, and certified organic production. Our partners, processors and finished product brands, both present and future, share our values and respect the principles set forth in our charter. “To stand out by producing extraordinary crops intrinsic to local identity, and do so while respecting and protecting the riches so generously given us by the earth.”
