Our team keeps us going. We're each uniquely passionate, driven, and connected with our planet.
Sanandi is founded in Mexico, that's where the farm is and where the products are made. Dieter saw the sickness in the US and expanded into the states, where we can offer our products to a larger community and make a bigger difference.
The Mexico Team:
Dr. Dieter le Noir—Sanandi's Founder
After graduating from Medical School, Dieter performed his social service work at a Mixe community. He became aware of the limitations of allopathy medicine during this time, motivating him to study Integrative Medicine in the United States, India, and Germany. In 1998, after studying Anthroposophic Medicine and Biodynamic Agriculture in Switzerland, his interest in cultivating medicinal plants was born.
He deeply cares about every step of the product creation process: from selecting the seeds that he cultivates to how the final product is formulated.
Sanandi’s products were born after almost 20 years of intense labor at his farm, Rancho La Paz.
Andreas le Noir—Founding Partner
Along with his brother Dieter, Andreas is Sanandi’s founding partner. Besides his great talent as an engineer, he has established - without a doubt - the ideal platform from which the Sanandi business has been able to grow.
Bernardino Sánchez—Head Lab Tech
Born and raised at the heart of a fully Mazahua rural farming community, Bernardino's mother taught him everything she knew about medicinal plants.
In 2007, Bernardino began working at Rancho La Paz with Dieter. Since then, he has been immersed in the world of organic and biodynamic agriculture, collaborating in all aspects of herbal plant cultivation and the production of Sanandi’s products.
Yolanda Suarez del Real—Sanandi and Valle La Paz Foundation PR
During her work as a Palliative Care team’s psychologist, she witnessed firsthand how agrochemicals and pesticides cause chronic and degenerative diseases. This sparked her interest in Sanandi’s foundation, Valle La Paz.
She now devotes her time to promoting Sanandi’s productive project, with the goal of maintaining the social work that is carried out through Valle La Paz Foundation.
An actuary by profession, she is in charge of managing Sanandi and handling its finances.
Olivia takes great care to apply Christian Felber’s economic model “Economy for the Common Good” by promoting its principles and human values with vendors and project collaborators alike.
