Naadam’ssupply chain operates at the intersection between profit and sustainability. We source raw materials while bypassing traditional trade layers through a strategic investment in sustainability. We support the livliehood of the people we source our raw material from by allocating profit share into micro-economic development. In turn our production improves both qualitatively and quantitatively. Our raw material costs beat our top competitors by nearly 25% and our finished good quality competes directly with market share leaders but under prices them by over 30%.
