Posted by: Audra Bates | Membership and Development Manager
We are excited to welcome Boiron into our partnership program! Boiron was founded in 1932 by pharmacists and twin brothers, Jean and Henri Boiron. Boiron is today still a family-owned laboratory manufacturing homeopathic products. They are headquartered in Lyon, France with an operating presence in 59 countries worldwide. It is the largest manufacturer of homeopathic products in the world. In 2004, it employed a workforce of 2,779.
OUR COMMITMENT - As world leader in homeopathic medicines, Boiron is committed to lead by example.
Our Commitment to the Environment - The Boiron Group has a strong sense of obligation to respect the environment. The preparation of their medicines has a limited impact on the environment. The main effects derive from extracting raw materials (continuity of species gathered), water pollution (mainly organic and biodegradable) and waste. As a counterbalance, Boiron promotes re-supplying wild or organically-farmed plants when possible. This sequentially improves the quality of raw materials used.
Additionally, the Boiron Group works with botanist-harvesters well-versed in diagnosing the land and employing harvesting strategies to anticipate continuity of supplies for the future. They generally harvest plants from their natural surroundings, which are then made into medicines according to the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States.
Our Commitment to Our Employees - It is Boiron’s deep conviction that the key to the performance and the growth of the company depends on the creativity and motivation of all concerned. To promote personal and professional growth, the Boiron Group pioneered a new approach to employee relations 20 years ago—one that fosters dialogue, self-confidence, and flexibility in tasks, hours and individualized work situations. In turn, the employees have a vested interest in the company’s performance through the employee profit-sharing program. Additionally, employees enjoy stress-reducing on-site massages, company-sponsored events to bring together family and friends, and an employee 401K program.
Their Commitment to Their Community - Boiron Medicinal Garden at Rodale Institute – The Boiron Medicinal Garden in partnership with the Rodale Institute is an educational showcase for flowers and herbs used in manufacturing homeopathic medicines. The garden, which opened to the public in June 2015, is located at the institute’s multipurpose 333-acre farm in Kutztown, Pa. The medicinal garden includes Arnica montana (Mountain daisy), Calendula officinalis (Garden marigold), Chamomilla (Chamomile), Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s Wort), Ruta gravolens (Rue), Symphytum officinale (Comfry) and many other therapeutic plants found in some of Boiron’s most popular medicines.

Holistic Moms Network – The Holistic Moms Network (HMN) is a national nonprofit organization connecting parents who are interested in holistic health and green living. HMN’s mission is to generate national awareness, education and support for holistic parenting and green living by providing nurturing, open-minded and respectful local community networks that encourage families to share these ideals and learn from each other. Boiron is a proud national sponsor of HMN.
