The development of reproducible and sustainable optimized extracts must be supported by sustainable methods of biomass production. We can help sourcing of high quality plants for your needs.

Controlled cultivation systems provide a continuous and sustainable source of plant metabolites, are independent of the environmental conditions, can be up scaled commercially and are essential for the production of rare and/or endemic plants.
