As scientific knowledge in the areas of health continues to expand, we commit to developing the most innovated health and nutrition solutions. We work in close collaboration with a scientific organisation such as the Riddet Institute and Alpha-Massey Natural Nutraceuticals Research Centre institution. Each dedicated to discovering and innovating to enhance health and nutrition.
"Taking fundamental science into actual product and service development for industry thus innovate the New Zealand economy"

The Alpha- Massey University relationship expanded through the formation of a jointly-named Research Centre. The research carried out at the centre focus on evaluating extracts for biological activity from New Zealand signature fruits such as feijoa, tamarillo, cucurbits and certain stone fruit.
"It's one thing to have knowledge about connection between health and nutrients in a food but using that knowledge to create a new product is an entirely different challenge."
