Natac Group consolidates its expansion in the botanical ingredients industry 2021: new manufacturing plant, new projects and financial support
Madrid, Spain (July 5, 2021) – Grupo Natac, S.L. (Natac) continues to consolidate its leadership in the industry of natural ingredients of botanical origin with the establishment of a new manufacturing plant in Hervás, Extremadura, which will allow the expansion of several product lines, the next publication of the sustainability report of the company, and its expansion in the Asian market with the opening of a new commercial office in Singapore, planned for 2022.
The new facilities are set in a privileged natural environment with a strong agricultural tradition. With almost 21,000 m2, the first phase of the factory has more than 6,500 m2 of production area, offices and warehouse. A multiproduct center where various extraction technologies are combined, with state-of-the-art equipment and machinery with an estimated annual processing capacity of 3,000 tons of raw material.
“Multiple technological factors make this production plant, with organic certification, a world reference and the most efficient and cleanest in our industry“, explained D. Antonio Delgado, CEO of Natac. “Our processes are harmonious and respectful with the environment; how could it be otherwise.”
Sustainability has always been a key part of Natac, at the center of its existence and, with this recent location, it extends its vertical integration model to new geographical regions based on strategic alliances with important local producers, to offer natural ingredients with the highest quality and traceability guarantees.
This growth trajectory has culminated into Natac recently being valued with more than 120 million euros as a result of a transaction that has granted it entry into the group of funds managed by Muzinich & Co Ltd (Muzinich), who joins Inveready, leading entity in venture capital in Spain, as part shareholders of the company.
Natac researches, develops, manufactures and markets natural ingredients for use in food supplements, pharmaceuticals, functional foods, animal feed and cosmetics, mainly plant extracts and functional lipids. The company’s sustainable business model involves establishing and maintaining relationships with farmers, large food companies and other stakeholders, and this enables the company to offer ingredients from different regions and are extracted with innovative technologies. The integration of a variety of processes, technologies and equipment in unparalleled synergy allows you to control the cycle from farmer to finished product.
