Our vision

Deeply rooted on the island of Gran Canaria and having a history of working with unexplored botanicals from stunning locations, we have a profound respect for sustainability and care just as much about how we work as what we produce.

We are on a journey to becoming a Certified B Corporation, transitioning towards a transparent purpose-driven business, being conscious about how our products contribute to sustainable development and how our operations are conceived and managed for a positive impact. We commit ourselves to make our efforts actionable and issuing an annual sustainability report.

We are making meaningful changes with and for our stakeholders, fostering partnerships based on transparency, authenticity and trust. This also means investing in our people, collaborators, research capabilities and eco-friendly technology, to keep bringing innovative plant-based solutions to the market in a responsible way.

Economic sustainability

Nature evolves – so do we

We continously learn and develop our knowledge so we can offer expert understanding of the behaviour and use of our extracts. We continue to invest in our in-house research and development capabilities as well as our laboratory facilities and sophisticated pilot plant for rapid prototyping.

Sustainability is the foundation for our products. From an economic perspective, our strategic roadmap focuses on:

Enhancing the value propositions of our current portfolio

Investing in research and technology to offer new products

Exploring related sectors for our botanical extracts

Fostering long-term partnerships along our entire value chain

Putting in value all our production side‑streams

Deploying our economic strategy and establishing our key pillars will help us contribute to the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

Environmental sustainability

Contributing to a healthier planet

From how we source our raw materials through to our processing and packaging, we are continuously working on integrating more environmentally sustainable practices into every aspect of our business and supporting our partners to do so, too.

100% of our energy consumption via renewable energy sources

Net zero greenhouse gas emission, fostering CO2 sequestration


20% reduction of energy, water, packaging and chemicals

Fully sustainable and transparent product value chain
