With our production facilities based in Lima - Peru, we are able to produce at the source of the raw materials. Around 85% of world production of cochineal and more than 15% of world production of annatto seeds comes from the inlands of Peru. We are currently expanding within the production of paprika derivatives as Peru is a strong producer of paprika.

We work with a network of distributors allowing us to fully understand our customers’ market and requirements so that together we can develop customized products. Our team of technicians is aware of how important the appropriate choice of natural color and application is to be able to achieve optimum results.
