The variety of products are composed of around 100 different types of plants. The tea ingredients are usually herbs, but they can also be a specific part of a tree or bush: bark, roots, fruits, leaves, blossoms and buds.
The company is looking for a technology that allows oxidation ("fermentation") of dried herbs. Some types of herbal teas need to be oxidized but the oxidation process becomes challenging after the herbs had been dried.

Only then they are transported to a factory where they are processed further.
The sought-after technology should re-initiate the oxidation process in dry herbs and reach oxidation levels to a certain degree. The whole process shall not corrupt the tea-character of herbs.

Industrial or technological partner with a proven know-how of solving similar issues is sought. Partner is expected to provide an analysis of the issue and identify a suitable technical solution. The companies will collaborate under a technical cooperation agreement in the design and test of the new equipment.
