HERBIOTECH AROMA was founded in 2011 by Dr. Leith Tlemçani & Mr. Mehdi Elouaer. The company is specialized in:
• Growing Organic Herbs and Flowers in Tunisia
• Air-drying and refinement of Herbs
• Production of Organic Vegetable oils and Essential oils
We contract with our customer on a secure periodic supply of high quality organic products with fixed prices. We offer to our partners the possibility to supervise all the production cycles from the land to the final product with total transparency.
By means of modern technologies in farming and industrial processing, our company is continuously aiming to provide the highest quality of herbs and oils to our Industrial customers. Working with true partners within long-term relationship, such is our motto.
We also take care of our employees within a solid social program. We actively participate in the development of rural and inner regions in Tunisia and help local population in improving their life standards.
Our team is passionate about herbs. In Kairouan the company is managing a land of 133 ha certified organic since 2012 by Ecocert. The main farming operations of seeds harvest, sowing, hoeing, weeding and harvesting of fresh herbs are mechanically operated by specialized machinery. For special crops, weeding and some other operations are done manually thanks to our workers, all native of this region, who provide our project with a formidable force.
Cultivation is fully integrated in our production process and continually supervised in all the different phases by our engineers according to weekly planning and daily records for full treatability. Our customers are always invited to visit our farm in order to give their appreciations and critics.
Organic Dried Herbs
In 2014, we equipped our plant with one of the most modern computer-controlled drying system for a total annual working capacity of 5000 tons of organic fresh material. Freshly harvested herbs are rapidly treated in order to preserve the maximum of taste and smell through an efficient gentle drying. Dehydration physical parameters are finely controlled in order to keep the highest content in essential oils and active molecules. Several pre and post drying unit operations like washing, cleaning, threshing, sifting… are also performed within a continuous production line for pre-cleaning and final refinement.
Organic Vegetable oils
In a separated area, our plant is also equipped with a modern biphasic olive oil mill, for the production of high polyphenol content Extra-Virgin Olive oil without any water addition. Our factory is also equipped with Screw-presses for the production of high quality cold pressed seed oils.
Organic Essential oils
HERBIOTECH AROMA is also managing a distillation Unit for the production of organic essential oils.
A fully traceable crop production protocol is the heart of our work. Before the plant is sown in the field, properties of the plant are identified and measured against the target profile of the ultimate product. During cultivation the growth, weed control and cultivation measures are monitored. Time of harvest is optimized according to plant development and weather. All starting materials and processing are documented so that the final customers can audit the production method employed in producing the crop. The cultivation process proceeds according to pre-agreed conditions with strong quality control and cultivation registration.
A Quality control system is applied from the seeds to storage of the finished product, with a total traceability (upstream and downstream) through rigorous monitoring of batch numbers, with the ability to track the delivered goods back to the farmer´s field.
All the traceability and parameters of farming, drying and cleaning processes are scrupulously documented
In our company, 100% organic products without pesticide residues we ensure guaranteed microbiological quality and GMO-free products.
