As part of its sustainable approach, Cassia Co-op aims to use 100% of the cassia tree.
In this context, we are starting to offer cinnamon essential oils. Oil can be extracted from the bark but also from the leaf. The oil from the bark is rich in cinnamaldehyde while the oil from the leaf contains mainly eugenol. A blend of the two oils is also available.
By producing oil in Kerinci, Cassia Co-op has also access to the abundant by-product timber generated by the cassia harvest. This bio and renewable energy completes the 100% recycling vision of Cassia Co-op.
In the near future, Rainforest Alliance and Organic certifications, already in place for our cassia supply, will be extended to the cinnamon oil distillation process.
