Nutraceutical extracts process scale-up
Nutra Canada scaled-up their production process requiring an explosion-proof facility for the extraction of value added ingredients for the food and nutraceutical industry. From the work made with Kemitek, they could make a proof of concept and engage in the financing and the construction of their own plant in Champlain, QC.
Nutra Canada developed its business by selling high-value extracts in the US and Japan. Today, Nutra Canada is owned by the Diana Food company.
