Manufacturing cycle

Aboca's production cycle is entirely verticalized: from the seed to the finished product, everything is carried out within Aboca's own plants. Of major value as the main tool for quality creation, the production cycle is subdivided between the agricultural phase, which takes place on over 800 hectares of organic farming, and the transformation/production phase, in three production units dedicated to the production of Medical Devices,  Dietary Supplements and Organic Cosmetics respectively.

  • STEP 1 - Organic cultivation

    STEP 1
    Aboca’s own organic farms extend over 800 hectares of land between Tuscany and Umbria. Experience, research and innovation have made Aboca a pioneer in the methods of organic farming adopted since 1978, based on respect for natural resources, environmental protection and biodiversity.
  • STEP 2 - Harvesting

    STEP 2
    The herbs are gathered at the best harvesting time, that is when the plant offers its best in terms of both yield and the quality and quantity of the phytocomplex.
  • STEP 3 - Drying

    STEP 3
    Drying, through a dehydration process, makes it possible to capture all the quality characteristics that the plant has at the time of the harvest.
  • STEP 4 - Extraction

    STEP 4
    Processing begins in the extraction department, a key process for obtaining the active ingredients of the phytocomplex responsible for the activity of the plant.
  • STEP 5 - Concentration

    STEP 5
    Concentration is achieved through evaporation of the alcoholic extract in a vacuum. In this way, the compounds present in the fluid extract are concentrated without deteriorating.
  • STEP 6 - Freeze-drying

    STEP 6
    Freeze-drying, which Aboca was the first to employ for medicinal herb extracts, allows the water to be removed without damaging the structure and components of the substance.
  • STEP 7 - Product Manufacturing

    STEP 7
    Aboca produces Medical Devices, Dietary Supplements and Organic Cosmetics. By exploiting a vertically-integrated production cycle, it succeeds in obtaining efficacious products of excellent quality.
