Vertical integration in organic food industry

Traceability is essential to manage all quality and risk aspects of infant nutrition manufacturing correctly. In this context Herba Ingredients prouds itself capable of offering a complete vertical integration package to the infant nutrition & organic food industry.

Vertical integration

More than 50 years we have been developing and improving new rice varieties. This challenging work is being tackled from many angles: field yield, disease resistance, contaminants (f.e low arsenic), industrial processing, ingredient functionalities, etc..

It takes more then 6 years for our skilled agronomists to turn a new cultivar into a commercial available seed for farmers. We are conducting growing programs in different parts of the world with our own, in house bred, European seeds. This allows us to offer flexibility and multiple alternatives to our customers in the organic and infant food industry.

Rice fields

Extremely important in the agronomical programs is the constant reduction and minimizing of different contaminants like heavy metals (low inorganic arsenic, low cadmium), mycotoxines & others. In this respect we have extremely clean rice solutions to offer to the food industry.
