Product DescriptionThe fragrance of this high quality incense is virtually other worldly it smells so divine. Yatra means pilgrimage and the lighting of this incense made from rich and natural ingredients, symbolises the beginning of a spiritual journey. This family managed business is based in Bangalore and employs two hundred and fifty people. The company describes their team of employees as sincere and hardworking. Employees receive many benefits including bonuses, medical insurance, maternity and paternity leave, free lunches, loans, housing/accommodation, educational support for children of employees and pensions. The manufacturing of the agarbatti or incense sticks is a labour intensive process. Bamboo sticks are hand-slit by indigenous women (in nearby forest areas) and purchased by the company. A dough mix of resin and handpicked herbs and spices is then hand-rolled by workers at the factory onto the bamboo sticks and dipped into natural perfumes. The design, printing and packaging of the sticks is also done in house. The whole process retains tradition and authenticity as well as providing employment to large sections of the society. This supplier is involved in lots of charity and community work and they celebrate many Indian festivals. All factories are equipped with rain water harvesting measures, use fully recyclable materials in all of their products and recycle any waste. They have continuously invested in better working conditions and factory improvements as the company believes their unity is their greatest strength and that together, they are stronger. It is believed that this ancient fragrance invokes the supreme forces and makes every wish come true.
