After several years of careful planning, including fact-finding missions to the United States and Asia, the first processing plant was brought into production in 1994 with a second plant in 1999. We added a third facility in 2004 and another one in 2007
The plants and the process are absolutely state-of-the-art and are based on years of careful research. The 3rd processing plant offers freeze drying, which has been scientifically proven to retain the highest nutritional value. Our freeze drying method takes 62 days and is not to be confused with other types of freeze dry processes that only take 7 days as found in New Zealand. Once dried, the antler is then scraped and singed to remove the fine velvet covering. The antler is then ground, mixed and encapsulated.
Our quality, efficiency and reliability of our facilities have interested other companies and research institutions wishing to utilize our manufacturing services for a variety of herbal formulations for commercial or scientific use.
