What we do

We work with farmers to enable them to produce regenerative agricultural products. We build companies to process these products, and bring high-quality regenerative ingredients to markets. We make sure everyone along the value chain — not only farmers — works together to fairly distribute the burden of risk. We supply customers with a selection of regeneratively produced tea, herbs, spices and oils.

Essential Oils Products

Grounded Ingredients provides transparent sourcing for ethical brands. We offer two sourcing models: South African brands seeking ingredients (e.g. herbal teas, carrier oils, essential oils and waxes) in smaller bulk volumes can shop online. For brands with specific ingredient needs seeking larger bulk volumes, we offer custom sourcing partnerships – a model we are piloting with brands in the European Union, North America, and Africa.

Bulk orders

Honeybush Tea Products

Should you be interested in purchasing ingredients directly from Grounded’s operating companies in bulk quantities (honeybush tea, dried honeybush tea for extraction, and rosemary essential oil), please get in touch.

Operating companies

Rural economies depend on their natural resources. The farmers we work with operate in ecosystems that are degraded — not only does their own soil need to be restored, but so do the natural areas surrounding them.

Langkloof Landscape

The Honeybush Company

The Langkloof is situated along the R62, a scenic route in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. This is a geographically varied region, inhabited by diverse communities where we work with farmers and harvesters to promote the sustainable harvesting and regenerative cultivation of honeybush. With a superb product, organic certification, full traceability and a fantastic team, the Honeybush Company is ready to get tea blends out into the world.

Simalaha Landscape, Zambia

Simalaha Incubator Farm Company

The Simalaha is a wildlife corridor connecting the Chobe and Kafue protected areas between Botswana and southern Zambia. Elephants once roamed freely, but wildlife has largely disappeared and the farmers living next to the corridor are struggling. The Simalaha Incubator Farm Company is working with promising farmers to turn a part of this marginal landscape into a commercially viable, regenerative vegetable farm to create real impact.

Trianon Spices

Trianon Spices

Spices from the lower Eastern Arc area of mainland Tanzania are of intrinsic high quality. As high value, non perishable cash crops with a growing global market, spices offer the potential for meaningful social impact. Grown near some of the most biodiverse rainforests in the world with a greater emphasis on farming in harmony with nature, spices can be a driver of economic and landscape change, combatting habitat loss and preserving precious biodiversity.

Baviaanskloof Landscape

Baviaanskloof Devco

The Baviaanskloof is a remote and breathtaking landscape in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. A drive into the area is an immersion into wide and wild nature; it is also home to a very special community of people. The Baviaanskloof Devco produces organic rosemary essential oils using regenerative agricultural methods and works with the Baviaanskloof Hartland Conservancy to implement regenerative farming and rehabilitation across the entire valley.
