Distillerie Bonollo Umberto S.p.A.
The Distillerie Bonollo Umberto S.p.A is considered a leader in the distillation of grappa and one of the most important producers in Europe with a production center in Conselve – in the province of Padua, northeast of Italy. The idea of making the most of grape berries is deeply rooted in the philosophy and expertise of the Bonollo family. As a distillery, they have processed pomace for four generations obtaining distillates with a high organoleptic profile. Combining experience and technology, Bonollo developed a production system capable of enhancing all elements of the source material. Via their proprietary water-membrane extraction process they have produced Ecovitis®, a premium grape seed extract with the highest level of OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) and of 100% Italian origin from field to processing. Artemis is excited to offer Ecovitis® as part of our portfolio of premium quality extracts.
Since 1986 Pronex has been producing natural colorants from Peruvian raw materials at their manufacturing headquarters in Lima Peru. With their specialization in colors in the range of annatto and carmine, Artemis approached them about anthocyanin production and a partnership was born. Quickly an anthocyanin-specific extraction facility was built and now performs the extraction of our Purple Corn extracts with new extracts planned in the near future. Pronex’ dynamic leadership team, in addition to their production, product development and scientific teams, have allowed for very successful ingredient development projects and we look forward to growing our product line with extracts produced in another beautifully picturesque part of our world.
