The venture combines Alponics’ infrastructure, Klersun’s capability in hemp cultivation, extraction and science and Robertet’s natural ingredients and market expertise.
“By vertically integrating in Switzerland with Robertet and Klersun, we will be able to provide the highest level of traceability and transparency to the Swiss customers of food & beverage, nutrition, supplement, cosmetics and pharma, who want to use CBD and hemp extract solutions in consumer products,” said Alan James Chaytor, Alponics.
Hemp extracts, in particular CBD, have emerged quickly on the global market as a beneficial functional ingredient to general health and wellness. A diverse range of products, from topicals, food, beverages and supplements have been launched in recent years.
“While there is much more research that needs to take place in order for the hard science to catch up with the consumer enthusiasm and demand, we are excited to lead in both this research and providing our customers with the safest and most effective hemp extracts to use in their products,” commented Olivier Maubert, Robertet.
