Our products are obtained after a Lyophilization process, also known as “vacuum dehydration”, whereby frozen raw materials are placed in vacuum cooling chambers, where they are dehydrated without thawing. Ice is sublimated (it becomes water vapor), without passing through the aqueous state, and is by that way extracted.
During lyophilization the ingredient’s cell structure remains intact, and since the process doesn’t consider a heat stage, products retain their nutritional value, color, flavor, aroma, and can be re-hydrated in a better way when compared to other dehydration processes.
This process presents the advantage of being able to convert perishable products into products that can be preserved for longer time periods, without refrigeration required.
All our products are elaborated with raw materials of the highest quality. Maqui is harvested in the wild by our communities and it’s certified organic at each stage of the process. Our murta (strawberry myrtle) is all wild in its collection, and cranberries and blueberries are crops from southern Chile, where the berries with the highest antioxidant content in the world are produced, due to its unique solar radiation conditions.
All our processes are developed in HACCP and BRC certified plants and certified Organic NOP and EU by IMO and Kosher, with the highest quality standards.
Recognized in 2011 by CORFO and its Seed Stage Funding programme by InnovaChile, obtaining financing to further develop our business venture.
Our innovation consists of combining (high quality) raw materials- which are traditional in the region – with cutting-edge technological processes. We aim to vindicate the wisdom of our indigenous communities, providing it with a renewed power and scope, while being backed by the scientific community, and always looking for new ways to add value to this proposal. We focus on the quality and functionality of our products fostering the social and environmental sustainability of the regions where our raw materials come from. This is supported by institutions such as InnovaChile, USDA Organics and Kosher Chile.
Our products are organic, gluten-free, kosher and raw vegan, and are obtained through the least possible processing, at low temperatures, in order to keep fruits nutritional properties and taste intact. This results in products that are functional and gourmet at the same time, which, given their quality, safety, and versatility, allow a number of uses, within the food industry and also in others, such as the cosmetic one.
Our company is deeply committed to fair trade, offering decent and well paid jobs that will contribute to our small farming and collecting communities’ local development, while recognizing and recovering our native communities traditional customs relevance (value). We also recognize our responsibility in contributing to biodiversity promotion and conservation, as a source of collective wealth that improves our (own) life quality.
