Uncompromising excellent quality is the basic standard for all company decisions and practised company-wide. High quality basic ingredients are naturally a priority for Ricola. This includes careful processing methods to produce the different herb specialties. Herbs are therefore cultivated in the Swiss mountains using natural farming methods. No Ricola herb farmer uses pesticides or herbicides to cultivate the herbs. This has been our practice for decades: Ricola relied on natural farming long before it became fashionable.
