Modern society needs new ingredients to stay healthy. Therefore we mildly extract valuable compounds out of natural resources.
Botanical drugs are the medicines
of the future. Safe and effective
production requires new technologies
Consumers demand convenience and ‘all-natural’ products. This offers challenges
in food product formulation with regards
to flavors, colors and active ingredients.

How we do it?
New technologies and approaches are needed to produce the ingredients of the future. Extraction processes play an important role in the production of these ingredients. Current extraction technologies make use of many processing steps, involve intensive processing conditions and use toxic and dangerous solvents.
