P.L. Thomas & Co. Inc. (Morristown, N.J.) and Nutrafur S.A. (Spain) announced their new strategic alliance to bring the highest-quality Mediterranean-origin botanical extracts to the United States. "UNESCO has recognized the Mediterranean diet as integral to the region's cultural heritage," states Paul Flowerman, president of P.L. Thomas. "Nutrafur brings fresh and well-researched solutions as to how to best share the benefits of this heritage with American consumers.
Nutrafur offers more than two decades of research, manufacturing expertise, and deep experience extracting the very best from nature. Its scientists have authored over 50 scientific peer-reviewed journal articles and the company owns various patents. Nestled in the heartland of Spain's citrus and olive regions, Nutrafur has long relations with farmers and gatherers and is deeply knowledgeable about active concentrations at different stages of plant maturation. Nutrafur's legacy product lines are olive and citrus extracts and a highly developed range of standardized extracts of European botanicals, ideal for foods, beverages and supplements. The company has successfully incorporated previously insoluble, bad-tasting botanical extracts into formulations delivering efficacious doses, neutral taste, 100 percent solubility and full transparency.
Nutrafur has an exceptional capability to rapidly customize extracts to meet their client's precise requirements. It has a large production facility and is accredited with ISO 9001, ISO 14000m, ISO 22000, kosher and halal. Its high quality products are analyzed in its own state-of-the-art laboratory.
"We are extremely pleased to be working with P.L. Thomas," states Juan Lorente, sales manager of Nutrafur. "Its reputation in the industry as a marketing and product commercialization engine is unsurpassed, and we feel they are the perfect partner to introduce Nutrafur's unique capabilities to the U.S. marketplace."
Mr. Lorente and Donald Gartland, North American sales manager, will be attending the SupplySide West trade show in Las Vegas on Nov. 7 and 8 and will be available for meetings at the P.L. Thomas booth, #20025.
