Forests, Farmers, and Flavors. These “Three F’s” summarize Lafaza’s mission: to respect the forests where their vanilla is grown, the small farmers who produce it, and the simple, pure flavor that it yields. Lafaza’s founders, Nathaniel and Sarah, joined the Peace Corps and ended up in Madagascar. Shortly thereafter, they met their fate in vanilla beans. The team at Lafaza takes pride in every aspect of producing superior, sustainable vanilla products. From preserving the integrity of the lush Madagascar forests that produce the beans, to maintaining fair and beneficial relationships with the small farmers who cultivate and cure them, Lafaza is committed to producing quality vanilla products that you can feel good about.
