Description

Description: 

Established in 2017, this innovative Northern Irish company offers naturally healthy mushroom powders. Recognising super-foods as a natural and healthy alternative to industrially manufactured supplements and powders, the company sought to bring ancient remedies back into the mainstream as a natural and organic medicine.
The company's leading product is Chaga which is harvested from the wild Siberian forests, source of the finest Chaga in the world. Chaga is hailed as the King of all mushrooms and its benefits are of particular relevance to today’s world due to its immune-boosting capability. An excellent source of manganese, Chaga will help with cell repair from oxidative stress and the maintenance of strong bone health. Its high content of chromogenic complex, melanins, and polysaccharides contribute to hair, nail and skin health as well as regulating sleep and maintaining normal energy metabolism and function. The Chaga is freeze-dried to preserve all its minerals, vitamins and nutrients.

In 2018, the company introduced its next product made from the lion's mane mushroom.
Lion’s mane has become a front-runner in the world of functional mushrooms. Its unique benefits include aiding brain function and memory, reducing inflammation and improving cognitive and heart health. Considered to be a gourmet mushroom with a delicate seafood flavour, lion’s mane
Can also be added to other drinks such as coffee, tea, smoothie, juice and even sprinkled over food.
Manufacturer's certifications and nutritional analysis documentation are available for both the chaga and lion’s mane products.
Environmental sustainability forms a core element of the company's business model. The company is focused on being as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible but the Chaga requires -30 climate to activate the best Chaga. Siberia creates the best chaga in the world where exact locations for ideal mushroom growth can be pinpointed.
The company seeks to expand its international presence.
The products are currently sold online and direct to pharmacies, health stores and high-end supermarkets.
The company would like to find partners with whom it can reach a win-win agreement and grow together over the long-term.
The company believes in business relationships based on trust and transparency to guarantee successful results for both parties.
