NATINOV®, the culture of plants

Born from the meeting of a producer of medicinal plants from the Anjou basin and a passionate phytochemist, NATINOV® is the fruit of complementary skills and a common vision. For almost 20 years now, NATINOV® has been known for its expertise in the field of plant extraction, as well as its strong commitment to the organic sector.

A company on a human scale

A subsidiary of the LAFFORT® group since 2014, NATINOV® is a company with strong links between its service-oriented staff and its clients. It is well known in its market for the quality and diversity of its plant extracts for nutraceutical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and animal nutrition use.

NATINOV® has total control over its sources of supply, thanks to its privileged geographical position in the heart of the Angevin basin, the main region in France producing plants for health, beauty and well-being, and thanks to the partnerships it has developed with local agriculture.

NATINOV® is an active and committed participant in the development of the sector, through the strong involvement of its workers and management in several associations or unions, but also in the structuring of the French industry for health, beauty and wellbeing plants, and the promotion of the Phytolia POP ‘Plant of Proven Origin’ label which fosters the use of plants of French origin.

NATINOV®, a passion for extraction

With an area of 3,000m2 dedicated to extraction, NATINOV® constantly invests in new technologies and continuously improves its production tools. The teams use state-of-the-art, high-performance equipment, on laboratory, pilot and industrial scales.

Always searching for new active ingredients, NATINOV® has an R&D laboratory with a team of inventive, passionate experts: pharmacists, chemists and biochemists, specialists in plants and their regulatory environment, who put their expertise at your service for the development of your plant extracts.

Conscious that each market, product and client has its own technical and regulatory specifications, NATINOV® accompanies you throughout the creation and realisation of your projects in order to provide you with tailor-made solutions as close as possible to your specific needs and your constraints.
