Weleda New Zealand headquarters are based in the beautiful Havelock North, Hawke's Bay where we have been making a wide range of anthroposophic and homoeopathic medicines since 1955. To ensure maximum vitality and potency, we grow our own herbs to the highest biodynamic standards, or source the finest ingredients from elsewhere in New Zealand or from sustainably cultivated, fair trade partnerships worldwide. On our biodynamic farm we also have three cows whose sole purpose is to provide manure for our compost and eight goats to naturally control weeds around the gardens.
In Europe, Weleda’s three main sites are close together, with our headquarters in Arlesheim, Switzerland just a few kilometres from the Weleda site in Huningue, France. The production operation in Schwäbisch Gmünd near Stuttgart is just 250 kilometres north-east in Germany. These three sites see the processing of most of the 1,000 natural, sustainably produced raw materials for Weleda products. More than 100 natural cosmetics products, 10 dietetics and around 2,500 medicines are also created here.
The highest quality standards and meticulous use of resources go hand-in-hand
as we manufacture our products. About 78 percent of the raw materials come from
organic or biodynamic farming and from controlled wild collection. All the
products are based purely on natural substances – artificial preservatives and
dyes are consistently avoided. Weleda enjoys a great business reputation for
quality, trust and a sustainable business development.
Weleda consists of 19 majority shareholders and the company employs
approximately 2,000 people worldwide. About 40 percent of the capital and about
80 percent of the voting rights of the Weleda AG are owned by two major
shareholders, the General Anthroposophical Society (AAG, Dornach, Switzerland)
and the Arlesheim Clinic (KA, Arlesheim, Switzerland), formerly Ita Wegman
Klinik AG. The remaining registered shares and the non-voting participation
certificates are in free float. Only members of the AAG are eligible for
registration in the share register. In sales terms Weleda can be found in more
than 50 countries on all continents.
Since the company’s founding in 1921, Weleda has been acting socially, environmentally and economically responsibly in all its business operations from the procurement of raw materials to the manufacture of skin care and medicinal products, packaging and distribution.
Weleda also grows medicinal plants and runs its own tincture production facility, where there is further processing of raw materials through distillation, extraction or potentising. Although some of our methods have changed over time, we have always been true to ourselves, our founders and our values. Socially, environmentally and economically we operate on the same principles since founding. We truly believe that it is this consistency which makes a positive difference to the world.
A strong commitment
Tradition and innovation are equally important to Weleda. They are the basis for our long-standing commitment to the three pillars of environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
A strong core
Right up to the present day Weleda remains true to the strongly-held spiritual principles of our founders, and their effects resonate throughout our company.
