Implantation and Sourcing

EMIGA is based in GARDANNE between AIX-EN-PROVENCE and MARSEILLE, a true strategic hub for the trade in natural products. 


We have developed long-term partnerships with trusted producers and we engage in harvest management processes and quality control from the very start. 


To ensure the traceability of arabic gum, we have developed a nursery over 8,000 hectares of Acacia Senegal plantations. The ecological and economic impact of this scheme far exceeds our simple guarantee of supply. 


Once harvested, the raw materials are transported to our storage warehouse located in the south of France. Our logistical experience allows us to ensure that the transfer of our materials is done in the best conditions and time. 


EMIGA implements a quality control of the batches upon their arrival. Our department ensures that the traceability is monitored and that existing regulations are complied with. We have an analysis laboratory for the quality control of our gums and a sample library for all of our referenced materials. 


Since 1960, EMIGA has on site the gum and resin processing units (crushing, spraying).


Natural gums and resins are stored separately from aromatic plants. In total, two warehouses cover a storage area of 1500 m2.
