Holy Lama’s products are mainly made from natural ingredients, avoiding the use of harsh chemicals or synthetics. Where possible, sustainable materials are used for the packaging. The production process results in less than 1% waste and this waste is used as fuel or animal feed, so the ecological footprint is exceptionally low!
The raw materials used for production come mainly from local farmers in Kerala and the rest of India, building on more than seven decades of well-established relationships with farmers. The company operates on a “no-credit” principle, which means that all farmers and suppliers of raw materials are paid immediately. The factory provides fair wages to its workers and fair prices to its farmers.
A Women’s company
Holy Lama Naturals is recognized in Kerala as a government approved business for women where more than 80% of factory workers are women. Most women come from a disadvantaged position (eg being widowed or abandoned by their partner).
