An expert team

From the start-up company to industrial groups, for every application sector working with plant-based biomass molecules, we are developing innovative, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solutions.

EXTRACTIS has set up a unique tool in the national territory which provides a structure that wants to innovate, diversify or solve specific problems with access to a set of services and skills ranging from concept validation to innovative products marketing: a combination of conventional and exploratory technologies.

From the start-up company to industrial groups, for every application sector working with plant-based biomass molecules, EXTRACTIS is developing its own method to value food or non-food plant: innovative, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solutions. The aim of EXTRACTIS is to discover new methods to enhance the plant, whether food or non-food.

The plant-derived molecules on which EXTRACTIS is working are already used as additives and ingredients in the food and healthcare industries, as active agents in cosmetics or as chemical intermediates in various industrial sectors. EXTRACTIS is active in the food (food and feed) and non-food (cosmetics, fine chemicals…) sectors.

Since 2009, EXTRACTIS is committed
to the respect of the biological production mode
in the food field
for its entire site.

Every development project is governed by an ad hoc contract which commits Extractis to respect deadlines, costs, confidentiality and intellectual property rules.

Extractis is ISO 9001 certified
