This way we can achieve unsurpassed quality of product and service, controlling production from seed to finished product.
Cut and chopped herbs to specific sizes form the bulk of our production. We have the capacity to produce fine milled frozen to 12mm fresh. A puree to a free running sprinkleable fresh herb garnish - with very low microbe counts.
