A team from ADM just completed one week immersion in the heart of SAVAN’s vanilla industry or SAHANALA ADM Vanilla.

From July 18 to 26, the ADM team familiarized with SAVAN’s unique and exceptional value chain; visiting the factories of Vohemar, Antsohihy and Manakara, meeting with vanilla growers associations, exchanging with the Sahanala Vanilla Federation. Not to mention the highly symbolic meeting with the President of the Republic Andry Rajoelina.

SAVAN is unique because it has created a sustainable ecosystem where the farmers make decisions on how to reinvest back into their local communities supporting programs around infrastructure, healthcare, education, agronomy, environment and other social projects as they decide.


ADM is the world leader in human and animal nutrition. It connects crops to markets on six continents and has 270 plants worldwide.
