VANILLA PODS – CUT
Origin : Madagascar (Bourbon region)
100% Natural product
NEW : Organic vanilla available
Vanilla Cut complements our product range by bringing a solution of choice to the dynamic vanilla market. Indeed, during hand pollination, the process of gestation and growth begins. Between the beginning of the year when the vanilla reaches its final dimensions and the official date of harvesting authorisation, some beans have a functional trait that sets them apart. Split, too short and sometimes showing unfinished maturity, this vanilla Cut is available on the Malagasy local bulk market. Far from the idea of standardized vanilla, the Cut comes to fill a market whose demand is rich and varied. This vanilla deserves consideration for what it brings to the various economic markets with international distribution. Its small size does not take away from its merit as it is a strategic asset in terms of cost and supply. Although favoured by certain industries, it remains too little known by professionals, especially in its premium version. Indeed, unclassifiable among its big sisters, this one presents, after sorting and selection, interesting olfactory properties as well as a vanillin rate higher than 1%. It is in demand by the cosmetics and food industry, but is also an additional solution for ice-cream parlours, yoghurt and dessert manufacturers. Cut premium vanilla is an economic substitute of quality due to its attractive prices.

The origin of Vanilla Planifolia found on hot Malagasy lands dates back to its discovery by the Spanish conquistadors who landed in Central America during the 16th century. Brought back to Europe by Hernan Cortes in 1529 after having tasted the flavours and virtues with the local Aztec tribes, it was only introduced towards the middle of the 19th century in Reunion Island before being established in Madagascar in 1880. Its Inability to be reproduced without the help of man, due to the absence of a pollinating insects in southern Africa, forces the producing populations to fertilize the flowers by hand.
The name ‘Bourbon’, label created in 1964, designates a geographical area of the Indian Ocean including Reunion, Madagascar, the Comoros and Mauritius in which Vanilla Planifolia flourishes.
