Cultivation and Processing

With over 40 years of experience in the cultivation and processing of Echinacea, our family business ISPEX stands out for the high quality of our products. We started the cultivation of medicinal herbs with the production of pressed juice of Echinacea purpurea. Since then we have been continuously expanding our portfolio and are happy to include new crops into our cultivation. Through our close cooperation with our customers all over the world, we are able to produce high quality raw materials in large quantities at internationally competitive prices.

We are looking forward to work with you.

Echinacea purpurea is considered the star among the immune-boosting plants. The production of the pressed juice has been our passion for decades. Our dedicated farmers cultivate according to GACP guidelines, the fields are cultivated in a completely natural way so that our plants do not come into contact with chemical agents. During the growth phase, the fields are checked several times and random samples of the plants are examined in the laboratory before harvesting. This is where our structured quality control begins. The plants are carefully harvested and delivered to the production facility as quickly as possible, so that only a few hours elapse between harvesting in the field and storage of the active ingredients. Together with our farmers, we look forward to developing new projects for the cultivation of crops to meet the high standards of our customers.

We process the freshly harvested plant material in our modern and efficient machine park. Our manufacturing processes are precisely documented, the traceability of each individual batch is guaranteed. We achieve optimal ingredients through constant controls and permanent cleaning. Our high-quality production is monitored by constant audits. We are certified according to DIN ISO 9001:2015 as well as GMP. We also have experience in the production of pressed juices from other plants and are looking forward to new inquiries.

Besides the production of pressed juice we also offer dried medicinal herbs and roots. Our drying containers, which are completely lined with stainless steel, have a constant temperature of about 40°C.

In our insulated warehouse, dried herbs and the fresh plant press juice in stainless steel tanks are waiting for the customers’ call. Temperature monitoring and pest control ensure that all products in our warehouse are safely stored.
