To take its joint development approach even further, L’OCCITANE asked for its shea butter network in Burkina Faso to be
awarded EFT certification. This enables women to set up a more efficient structure and to use the EFT label to make their products more attractive to other international clients, thus offering more opportunities for
development.EFT (Ecocert Fair Trade in the spirit of solidarity and responsibility) is a label awarded by

Ecocert. It is aimed at establishing a sustainable development approach through commodity chains based on a close partnership with producers. Each year, an indepth audit is conducted at the production site.

The EFT certification guarantees :
• Economic solidarity, for a close and sustainable partnership.
• Social responsibility, for sustainable commercial relationships.
• Environmental responsibility, to support the development of sustainable farming.
• Transparency of information and respect for the consumer.

A sustainable joint development programme with Burkina Faso
L’OCCITANE has built up a sustainable partnership with the women of Burkina Faso. 20 years ago, there were fewer than a hundred women. Today, there are over 12,000, working in four different groups and producing
precious shea butter for L’OCCITANE. This exchange is more than just a commercial relationship. L’OCCITANE
supports the work of these women by purchasing the butter they make directly from them. A fair price is paid, which covers production costs, as well as environmental and social costs, and also leaves a margin for investment.
