Eevia Health Oy, a Finnish producer of health ingredients made from organically certified plant extracts, has upgraded its green-chemistry manufacturing plant in Finland to meet strong demand from customers.

During the first four months of 2020, Eevia Health invested in new equipment, machines, and technology to improve functionality, productivity, and throughput of the special-purpose ingredient factory. The equipment-upgrade amount to an investment of approximately 1 million euros and is 100 percent equity-financed by Eevia Health owners. It includes significant improvement in functionality, directed at maintaining high quality in the extraction process of complex compounds from natural plant material. Located near the harvest areas of its raw materials, Eevia Health offers the shortest value chain in the industry, a strong focus on sustainability and traceability and products with an environmentally friendly carbon footprint.

“We are very pleased to have completed this factory-upgrade. It puts us as a competitive company for high quality, branded ingredients in a 500 billion euro global nutraceutical ingredients market,” said Eevia Health Oy CEO and Founder Stein Ulve. “The investments will especially benefit our manufacturing of polyphenolic extracts from arctic bilberries and lingonberries, as well as elderberries. Some of the improvements are radical. For instance, earlier, the residence time (the time the extracted liquid has to be in the process step) for extraction liquids in one process step was four hours, whiles now this step only takes a few seconds. This greatly benefits quality.”

Eevia Health Oy will celebrate the reopening of its green-chemistry production facility in Kauhajoki with a formal opening ceremony as a live-streamed webinar at the end of June.
