The group has been known as the major extract manufacturer in South America for over 50 years. Since being founded in 1957 the group has maintained its philosophy of transferring botanical raw materials into extracts of the highest quality. A key aspect of our commitment in recent years has been working to achieve environmental sustainability of our many raw material sources. To do this our environmental group within the company supervises the most advanced agricultural techniques in cultivation. It gives preference to organically grown materials on our own farms or with contracted grower partners who supply certified herbs and fruit that are free from pesticides and heavy metals. Brazil is a very fertile country which stretches from the tropical rain forests in the north (the famous Amazon region) to the temperate growing areas in the south.

This diversity allows for a wide range of growing conditions which enables us to maximise our opportunities for cultivation of selected herbs, fruits and vegetables.We also specialise in many of the typical South American extracts such as Acerola, Cats Claw, Guarana, Mate, Pau d' Arco to mention only a select few.

We also manufacture a range of vegetable powders that includes beetroot, broccoli, carrot, onion, spinach, sweet pepper, tomato and watercress. Our fruit powder range is extensive and covers most well known fruits as well as South American specialties such as Acai, Acerola, Cashew, Mango, Papaya, Star Fruit, Tamarind and many others.

A certified organic range of herbal extracts as well as vegetable and fruit juice powders which range from "A" for Acerola to "T" for Tamarind are offered to the healthcare, food and beverage industries.

Our company mission statement sums up the company philosophy:

"Provide products and services that are traceable, quality assured and sustainable without harm to the environment, that generate added value to our customers, suppliers, local communities, company employees and a fair and ongoing return to shareholders in our company".
