But first, Regulatpro.

Brand name: Dr. Niedermaier
Country of origin: Germany
Year established: 1939
Types of product: Organic cascade-fermented concentrates

Dr. Niedermaier Pharma GmbH had been founded by chemist Dr. Hans Niedermaier in 1939. Its primary task is to conduct research for the treatment of illnesses that are attributed to a deficit of enzymes and vital substances.

As the pioneer in the development of natural herbal remedies for more than 79 years, Dr. Niedermaier Pharma GmbH had patented an innovative technology, after many years of research, namely Cascade Fermentation™.

Regulatpro® Bio is the Cascade-liquid concentrate of fresh, organically grown fruits, nuts and vegetables under certified conditions. The patented 3-Steps-Cascade Fermentation™ activates all health-promoting ingredients in a life-enhancing environment, resulting active and concentrated nutrients with exceptionally high enzymatic efficiency. It breaks down the nutrients into bio-available units easily absorbed through the cells membrane.

Through this dynamic fermentation method, which takes 6 to 12 weeks time, all ingredients are reduced into their smallest molecular parts and the valuable substances highly concentrated, in a form that can be absorbed immediately. Contrary to other single-fermented products, the fragmented enzyme concentrate is already partly absorbed by the mucosa of the mouth and readily made available (100% bioavailable). The breakdown of potential allergens (eg. walnuts, soybeans) eliminates the risk of allergic reactions.

Dr. Niedermaier Regulatpro® Bio supports the regulatory systems and regulates the enzymes level in our body thus revitalises and improves energy supplies to body cells and strengthens our immune system.

Consume Dr. Niedermaier Regulatpro® Bio regularly to promote healthy blood environment, cleanse body and rid of toxins, and alkalise the body naturally.

Year established: 2010
Types of product: Organic plant-based protein

ezyprotein is Australia’s first Certified Organic Wholegrain Brown Rice that has first been sprouted and then bio-fermented with a special natural and non-chemical fermentation process.

This makes it extremely easy for the body to absorb and digest. It is then dried at a very low temperature retaining all the plant enzymes and phyto-nutrients and remains a raw food.

ezyprotein is a complete protein containing all 8 of the essential amino acids. All of the amino acids are naturally occurring and exist in a beautiful ratio very similar to the ratio found in human mother’s milk. With its Complete Amino Acid Profile and superior absorbability, this totally natural plant-based food is a new and healthier replacement for processed proteins from pea, soy and whey.

Slow oil tradition.

Brand name: Émile Noël
Country of origin: France
Year established: 1920
Types of product: Organic slow-pressed oil

Émile Noël owns the first oil mill in France to grind organic seeds. The manufacturing process used by Huilerie Émile Noël is a traditional method, which uses old screw presses, carefully maintained, for a slow and gentle extraction of the oil. To make one litre of oil, it takes from 2 to 14 kilos of raw material depending on the type of seed used.

At Émile Noël, everything is done to preserve the nutritional and organoleptic qualities of the raw material. As shown in the diagram below, Émile Noël organic virgin oils are manufactured by mechanical means, at first cold pressing or cold extraction, without any chemical treatment.

Indeed, the mill still uses the old screw presses from the beginning, acquired from the 1960s. “This material works perfectly. And it is very well maintained, “ said the master miller. Over the years, he has taken care to amass an impressive stock of spare parts from old machines. Thus, everything is available on site to maintain and repair, if necessary, antique presses. “But these presses are very solid, and always at the top in terms of quality,” said Émile Noël, who for nothing in the world would replace them with presses of recent technologies.

“Newer presses may have better performance, but they’re running faster. Ours turn very slowly using a worm, at a temperature below 60° C. This makes the seeds less heated, less excited. They have time to flow slowly. It’s perfect for the respect of the seed.”

Made with conscientiousness and passion in the respect of the artisanal tradition, the virgin oils of first cold pressure thus preserve the whole value of the fatty acids and the natural vitamins. Natural and authentic, they deliver the flavour and finesse of the fruit or seed from which they come. In other words, the artisanal production processes that characterise Émile Noël oils combine marvels and pleasure of taste, health and gastronomy.

Émile Noël also practices fair trade since 20 year ago.

IncaFé was established by Carmen Castro and Joop Verbeek in 2007. It is raved as one of New Zealand’s most successful coffee roastery thanks to the owners’ passion for coffee, organics and sustainability.

Founded on the belief that organically grown products produce a superior taste, IncaFé coffees are all certified organic, Fair trade and shade-grown at high altitudes.

IncaFé takes great pride in personally sourcing beans from carefully selected growers from around the world, who understand that natural environments, complementary plantings and non-chemical treatments create rich, healthy soils essential for growing bountiful, full-tasting coffee crops, the benefits of which are transferred into every bean that is roasted.

IncaFé holds true to the notion that for nature to work best we should respect the soil, its water and all that lives in it; for the land to produce best we should respect the hands that care for it. That is why IncaFé supports farmers, visits their operations, assists with production methods, and through collective efforts to realise a sustainable business partnership from bush to cup.

On top of that, IncaFé’s support to growers extended to advising on and assisting with infrastructure and business efficiencies, educating them about current market trends, cupping the picked harvest alongside them and generally cementing a very strong partnership.

For the growers, it means financial stability and a committed buyer; for IncaFé, it means it gets the pick of the crop by buying in advance of harvest; for end consumers, it means that you receive a quality cup of coffee and a clear conscience, knowing that with each sip you are helping to maintain a special growing ecology, and a thriving and sustainable business for the cultures that grow and harvest the beans.

IncaFé is especially proud to be able to sponsor a school in the famous coffee growing region of Villa Rica in Peru. Keeping education close to the plantations has multiple benefits for the community. The families are able to stay together as they do not need to look for work near other schools or have their children stay elsewhere to be educated. It also means that the children have an alternative to staying with their mothers whilst they work in the coffee plantations. A bonus is the opportunity for the children to learn the principles of organic farming at a young age, providing not only basic food cultivation skills but also continuing the country’s ability to be leaders in the growth of organic coffee farming.
