At present, some of the plant raw material used for production of active substances available on the market, is produced through non-sustainable methods by harvesting of wild populations or by field and greenhouse cultivation. This can lead to endangerment of wild populations. Field and greenhouse cultivation often have a large water usage, and the plants are often treated with pesticides. Furthermore, such plant raw material can have low and/or varying quality.
In our production platform, the cultivation takes place in vitro, in a controlled, clean room laboratory environment with well-defined nutrient solutions. This enables production of uniform, high quality plant material, free from pests, hazardous chemicals (i.e. heavy metals) and unwanted plant species (adulteration). Our production process has full traceability, takes place continuously all year round and is not affected by variations in weather and seasonal changes.
