Frutarom BU Health FacilityFrutarom Health is expanding its offering of natural pharmaceutical ingredients with the recent acquisition of Vitiva dd. The addition of the GMP-certified plant of Vitiva is a game changer in the ingredients market and offers synergetic opportunities for the company.

“Vitiva’s natural ingredients are produced in the Slovenian GMP-certified facility, with an Active Substance Master File (ASMF) documentation, and are a perfect match for the current portfolio of Frutarom’s natural pharma-grade extracts,” says Holger Riemensperger, General Manager of Frutarom Health. “The all-natural ingredients fit seamlessly within our EFLA pharm range.”

With the increased use of traditional medicine worldwide, safety and efficacy — as well as quality control — of herbal medicines and traditional procedure-based therapies are major concerns for health authorities and the public.

“Vitiva brings to the table not just this important addition to our portfolio but also its know-how, technical support, production and innovative methods,” continues Riemensperger. “Our expertise will be applied toward incorporating these new ingredients in our system and increase service to our client base.”

Vitiva developed exceptional botanical extracts covering important categories for Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products (THMP), such as passion flower and valerian for mental health, lemon balm, for digestive health and bearberry for urinary tract health. All Vitiva and Frutarom extracts are produced using the most advanced equipment, technologies and expertise, and all comply with the highest quality standards.
