Our products are available in more than forty countries worldwide supplied from our GMP manufacturing facility in Dubai, UAE.
We pack and test more than eight million blister, sachet and bottle packs annually.
We manufacture more than two hundred million tablet and capsule nutraceutical products annually, including vitamins, minerals, multi-nutrients, omega oils, enzymes, specialist supplements, phyto-nutrients, probiotics and natural-based pharmaceutcials.
We grow more than fourteen trillion probiotic bacteria each year which are stabilised and then incorporated into nutraceutical capsules, tablet, liquid and sachet products.
