A Viable Future

Quintis sourced Indian sandalwood (Santalum album) seeds from Mysore in India in 1999, planting the first Indian sandalwood trees in the tropical north of Australia — the ideal climate and conditions for the species to flourish. In doing so Quintis has ensured a viable and sustainable future.

Across a vast 12,000 hectares, the Quintis Indian sandalwood plantation estate is home to more than 5.5 million sandalwood trees - the largest in the world. From seed to final product, our vertically integrated process and full chain of custody means your final product can be traced back to a harvest area within our plantations. 

Your Products

To date we have harvested from our Packsaddle Kununurra plantation. Kununurra’s geographical location is within the same equatorial zone as Southern India and the ideal climate and conditions for this species to flourish. The crop was painstakingly nurtured and tracked over 15 years until ready for harvesting.

During harvesting our rich, oil-bearing heartwood is carefully collected over several weeks by harvesters and sent to our primary processing centre (PPC) in Kununurra where a product batch number is created and linked to a job number. From there the wood is transported to the processing and distillation facility in Albany where our oil is distilled, and product undergoes all quality and supply assurance checks.

We are committed to traceable processes, providing full transparency. From Paris to Shanghai, our global team can tell you when and where the trees were planted, and the process they have been through in their journey to you.
