History of the Distillery
Les essences NIDO is an essential oil manufacture based in Port-au Prince, Haiti and owned by Dominique and Nicole Jean since 2008.
The history of the plant, however, goes way back before the JEAN family acquisition. The original manufacture, the CITRUS PRODUCTS SA, was actually built in the early 1970’s by Mr Aral Busenius, an entrepreneur native of Cap-Haitien. During that era, the plant was producing lime, ginger, amyris, and vetiver oils for export.
Nowadays, NIDO main production is Amyris oil. The plant also produces vetiver and is projecting to expand its product list in the near future.
Les Essences NIDO is greateful to have inherited all the expertise and experience from its past owner and founder Mr Aral Busenius. That is what makes the plant what it is today: ONE OF THE LARGEST PRODUCER OF AMYRIS OIL IN HAITI.
Mission & Philosophy
At Les Essences NIDO, we constantly strive to improve and update our distillation techniques through research and development.
Our water treatment plant has been installed by one of the finest company on the market and features the latest technology in the water purification industry.
Every single drop of oil is carefully tested in our lab to ensure purity and quality of the product.
Revenues from Vetiver roots sales are so minimal that Haitian farmers are presently living below poverty level despite high sales volumes.
Les Essences NIDO, in association with Inter-American Development Bank and other partners, is working towards building a sustainable Vetiver chain in order to maintain a steady crop farming and oil production. This initiative should ensure a future price stability in the market worldwide and will benefit everyone along the chain: the growers, the distillers, and the purchasers.
