Sustainability has always been a cornerstone of Natac, it goes to the core of the company's existence. As a company that relies upon nature, there is a deep understanding that nature cannot be destroyed to achieve a business purpose. From the beginning there was a recognition that many agricultural and industrial processes do not fully utilize the resources nature provides, whether for lack of knowledge, or means.

Natac determined that they could play a fundamental role and build sustainable processes. Analyzing both agricultural (cultivation) and productive (use of plants), an understanding of the process points within cultivation required necessary resource investment to obtain the full potential from plants, while improving impacts on the environmental and  yield of benefits from each plant, and eliminating waste production.

Listen in today and learn more about:

  • The importance of sustainable and environmentally-friendly consumption and production of botanical ingredients.

  • The full use of raw materials; considering that they are food products, it is immoral to allow its waste.

  • What is the HABOID method?

  • How the future of farmers is guaranteed. Partnerships increase farmers’ stake in the value chain, and helping them make their process more sustainable helps them with their livelihood.

  • Improving nutrition and health in a sustainable way with full-spectrum extracts derived from whole plants.
