At Hippocrates Farm, we cultivate, process and market, the best organic sea buckthorn, as a pleasant everyday food, so that people can benefit the most out of it. We started doing so, through the osmotic low temperature process, an innovative dehydration method that keeps all the goodness of the fresh fruit. The softness and the conservation of the nutritionals achieved through the osmotic procedure allow us the development of unique beneficial product applications. We go through the standard packaging procedure: we place our crop at a sealed polyethylene bag which is placed in a paper food packet, showing the brand of our product. The product is produced by Rezos Brands SA.
We have launched Osmotic Sea Buckthorn and Osmotic Sea Buckthorn Juice, both excellent ways to consume Sea Buckthorn. Our next target was to launch this wonder food to an even wider audience. And there was an easy way to do so. Chocolate! Dark and smooth, full in antioxidants, turns sea buckthorn into a delicacy. We now are focusing on the next big thing for us: a new series of innovative organic products based on 85% cocoa chocolate, enriched with sea buckthorn extract and oat-based cereal with sea buckthorn and mountain tea extract.
