Akinom's values guide its business model towards greater sustainability and responsibility. This translates into good inventory management, not selling out products and offering consistent and stable prices and discounts all year round. Respect for the environment is no longer an option and is not a marketing posture, it is part of the daily actions of the company. Supporting an association is also essential to raise public awareness of a cause.

Social and environmental responsibility

Environmental respect is at the heart of our actions and reflections by taking the least impacting options. Our packaging is recycled & recyclable. Our factory is equipped to avoid any harmful discharge into the atmosphere, we use materials either bio sourced or recycled. We have chosen Portugal as a place of production in the broadest sense, including the manufacture of raw materials and finished products, to limit the carbon impact of transportation.

Limiting overstocking: the principle of pre-ordering and just-in-time replenishment is, in our opinion, the healthiest way to offer our products in order to limit waste and to be as close as possible to our customers' needs.

Clear and transparent pricing

No sales: originally these two annual periods were created to reduce "surplus and unsold goods" by having the possibility to sell at a loss. By limiting overstocking, selling off no longer makes sense and avoids selling at a loss. Selling at a loss takes away the value of the work of the people and the materials used.

A fair price for our products: it reflects the real cost of the raw material, the quality and the value of the work done by the spinning factory through assembly, distribution and marketing.

Permanent discounts on pre-orders and bulk purchases are offered because we take the decision to pass on the savings from marketing, advertising and transportation efforts to our customers in the retail price.

Commit to others

Charitable commitment is part of the brand's values: by taking care of ourselves we take care of others. Akinom is committed to donating 1% of its annual benefit to support research into testicular and prostate cancer. This specific choice is in line with Akinom's holistic vision of male well-being.
