Fresh and nutritious herbs for food and pharma

Grönovation AB is Swedish Agri and Food Tech company producing fresh herbs all year round. We do also develop next generation bioceuticals based on our unique technology platform.

About us

We are a Swedish Agri and Food-tech company delivering fresh, nutritious locally grown herbs all year round. We do also develop herbal extracts for pharma and cosmetics. Our products are grown with precision in a clean, indoor and monitored environment with zero pesticide usage and minimum environmental impact. Our herbs are marketed under the trademark Deliplant ® and the company is a joint venture between the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) Holding AB and Karolina Ventures AB based in Uppsala, Sweden.

Food production

Our food production currently focuses on the following herbs: basil, thyme and mint. We do also produce a mix of salad. The innovative production technology used in our facility does not only provide fresh plants year round and free of pesticides but also plants with enriched taste. As the plants are not grown in soil, they are especially suitable for restaurants and caterers. When harvested and packed our products remain fresh for a minimum of 10 days.

Pharma and cosmetics

Raw materials devoid of any contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticide residue is the key for achieving higher efficacy of quality bioactive metabolite. We have developed an optimal climate creation technology in which we grow plants with precision, enabling us to achieve higher amounts of active ingredients.

Technology

Our climate smart precision growing technology employs the best in crop science. It is a fusion of the best in crop science with real-time data monitoring, climate creation technology and AI.

Optimal nutrition: We continuously monitor macro and micro nutrients for our plants enabling us to provide the best they require for an optimal growth. 

Smart light: Our energy efficient LED lights provide a specific light spectrum for optimal photosynthesis in plants. This precise lighting provides enhanced nutrition and accumulation of active metabolites in plants. Also resulting in better taste.

Environmental friendly: Low energy consumption due to LED lights, low water consumption due to our hydroponic system, no use of pesticides. Clean indoor production in existing facilities. Easy to establish new production entities close to customers thus reducing transport.

Research and development

The company's research is focused on developing novel biomarkers of herbal medicines against specific disease targets, building an effective evidence-based basis for precision medicine.

Precision Herbal Medicine: With Precision growing (optimized light spectrum for expression of specific metabolites, specific nutrients under Controlled Growth Environment) and optimized omics based extraction protocols to final product.

Precision Herbal Extracts: For nutritional and personal hygiene, Lab facilities that ensures precision down stream processing to product developmentyä

Growing medicinal plants

Raw materials devoid of any contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticide residue is the key for achieving higher efficacy of quality bioactive metabolite. We have developed an Optimal climate creation technology in which we grow plants with precision, enabling us to achieve higher amounts of active ingredients.

Extraction

We emphasize on Omics based approaches in elucidating and understanding the mechanism of action for various phytochemical components of herbal medicine and enhancing their action.

In addition, phyto-fingerprinting of selected herbs using metabolomics approach such as GC-MS/LC-MS/UPLC-MS and NMR spectroscopy to advance the precise profiling of metabolites.
