The Ricola Foundation is a corporate foundation to support projects in the field of culture and nature. It was founded on the basis of the bond that we at Ricola enjoy with the natural ingredients in our products and with our cultural tradition.
The original meaning of “Cultura” was “care of the soil”. Our most important ingredients – the herbs – are a gift from nature and a cultural product.

Nature and culture are not opposites. Rather, they both form the basis for a humane world, which is why I, as a co-owner of Ricola, have made a personal commitment to the Ricola Foundation.
