“Hervás now is a point of innovation and talent thanks to the construction of the Natac center,” added Ms. Patricia Valle, Mayor of Hervás.
The Hervás factory’s first objective is to produce plant extracts, both from botanical species known in the region such as olive trees, grapes, and saffron as well as from species grown in remote geographical areas such as rhodiola; originally from Siberia.
“Multiple technological factors, not to mention its organic certification, make this production plant a world reference and the most efficient and clean in our industry,” explained Mr. Antonio Delgado.
