Extracta has developed innovative technology and processes that harness the goodness from fresh crop waste, transforming it into high-quality natural ingredients suitable for a range of uses – from nutraceuticals and cosmetics to food products.
These innovations not only help to minimise crop waste for Australian agriculture businesses but also introduce exciting new ‘value-add’ natural ingredients for manufacturers to meet increasing consumer demand for natural products and ingredients.
All of that by keeping the logistical footprint to a minimum by relocating the processing plant to where the masses of processable materials are located.
