Quality To meet our own high demand for top quality, we prefer using whole plants – raw plant products which have not been chopped up or processed in any way. Raw materials can be traced from the producer in the country of origin through internal lot and batch numbers.
The processing and treatment of raw material takes place at our own production facilities in accordance with German GMP guidelines. Our production licence is in accordance with paragraph 13 AMG (German law); external laboratories certify the necessary food and medicinal quality. Our certified production, in accordance with EU Regulations 2092/91 for goods from biologically-controlled plantation, is expanding all the time. Last but not least, our company is also Kosher-certified.
We rely on the knowledge of our long-term, experienced and dedicated co-workers together with state-of-the-art technology. In our trade, a “sixth sense” is so important but so difficult to acquire.
Distribution When it comes to dried raw plant products we store everything you can imagine on more than 20,000 m², and a lot more that you cannot imagine – regardless whether it is spring, summer, autumn or winter. Be they medicinal herbs or spices, for use as handicrafts or dyes, whether as herb or fruit teas, or a variety of resins or rubber, maybe in the form of capsules or oils, even as Propolis products or aromas, all from conventional or biologically-controlled plantations.
