Our goal was to design a next generation extraction site, optimised, flexible and multipurpose in order to offer our clients botanical extracts made from our comprehensive raw material portfolio.
This new Soyons site, near Valence, complementary to the headquarters in Lozanne, is one step closer to the realisation of our project: by internalising all the production steps from the raw material to the production of extracts, we maintain full control over our botanical ingredients.
Historically established in the Rhone-Alpes since 1999, we have decided to continue our development in this area for aromatic and medicinal plants. This new facility near Valence, close to our producers, allows us to better meet market needs in terms of quality, traceability and local production. In line with our CSR commitment, our objective was to develop our company while keeping a positive stance for the environment and the local economy with the setting up of:
1. An energy-saving building
The construction was designed to reduce energy consumption based on reinforced insulation and setting up energy recuperation generated by the procedure.
2. New jobs
Ten employees have been hired and this number should increase quickly with the transition to shift work.
While we already develop new extracts at our BotanicalStudio®, we outsource industrial production. As we are dependent on our sub-contractors, this constraint could likely have slowed down our developments. As all the production of our ingredients is done in-house, we manage and control our timetables and have become increasingly reactive. This new « Botanical Center » dedicated to plant extraction allows us to support our clients with the setting up of new projects and to propose even more developed ingredients.
This building selected as a « centre of excellence », pools together the latest industrial developments in terms of extraction and pledges FLEXIBILITY, MULTI-FUNCTIONALITY and TECHNOLOGY with full TRANSPARENCY:
1. Flexibility & multi-functionality
This new unit is extremely multi-functional and going from one product to another is done very easily. It is perfectly adapted to all types of aqueous and ethanolic extractions regardless of the plant form (seeds, bark, leaves, etc).
State-of-the-art technology concerning automation; our assembly lines use high performance tools to ensure precision and safety while gaining in productivity and reactivity.
Equipped with hundreds of sensors on our assembly lines, all parameters are monitored and recorded to ensure control and process reliability. By internalising all development operations to marketing ingredients, we maintain complete control of the supply chain and certify the traceability of our products.
