Sourcing Excellence at Rigden International

Trusted Source for Premium Sanderswood Products Worldwide

At Rigden International, we take great pride in our sourcing process for Red and White sanderswood. Our commitment to ethical and sustainable procurement practices is at the heart of our operations. This page provides insights into our sourcing methodology, our valuable relationships with farmers, and our unwavering adherence to government regulations.

Sourcing Process

  • Farmers’ Collaboration: We believe in fostering close relationships with farmers who have been cultivating sanderswood trees for over 30 years. Our partnerships with these dedicated individuals, often in remote villages of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, and Kerala, ensure a reliable and sustainable supply of sanderswood.

  • Soil and Wood Quality Testing: Rigden International’s experts meticulously test the soil conditions where sanderswood trees are grown. We also conduct laboratory assessments to evaluate the quality of the wood. Only when both criteria meet our stringent standards do we proceed with procurement.

  • Responsible Harvesting: We ensure that the trees we source are mature, sound, and meet the top end girth and length requirements specified by our customers. Responsible harvesting practices are critical to the long-term sustainability of sanderswood forests.
