our story

Our mission is to produce 100% natural water soluble bioactive ingredients from NZ grown fruits & plants that deliver health, well-being and functionality to a broad range of product formats.


With our 100% Aqua Pure® water extraction process, we are able to produce highly bioactive ingredients from New Zealand grown fruits and berries. Our company is the only one in the world to produce water-extracted ingredients from these raw materials! No solvents or chemicals are used in our process, and this means our products are highly soluble. 

Supported by quality science our ingredients add health functionality to a wide range of products, including dietary supplements, digestive health products, sports nutrition products, antioxidant products, immunity boosting and personal care products.

Our ingredients are used today in a variety of products throughout the world. We work with companies in Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand and North America.

We source fresh New Zealand cultivated fruit and plants with naturally high levels of antioxidants and subsequent bioactivity. Marine and other raw materials are sourced from growing partners who understand our need for rigorous quality requirements. Growers are selected with great care and consideration, and importantly for their sustainable practices. We work to be as sustainable as possible with a low environmental impact.

Maximising recovery in processing is achieved through using almost all fruit skin, seeds and some flesh, with many of our raw materials being the by-products of other industries.
