Robertet and Klersun, global partners in hemp oil, have joined forces with Alponics, a Swiss based CBD and hemp producer, to provide the 'highest level of traceability and transparency' for makers of Swiss food, drink and supplements.

Robertet, a global leader in natural and organic ingredients, has teamed with Oregon based Klersun, a leader in hemp cultivation and extraction, and Alponics, one of several companies under the founder PACRIM (Pacific Rim Plantation Services) which has over 25 years of agricultural knowledge, specialising in responsible production of chemical-free edible oils.

The partners hope that with Alponics’ infrastructure, Klersun’s cultivation and science and Robertet’s market expertise, they will be able to meet the tough demands of Swiss consumers and the companies wanting to use Swiss made hemp extracts in their products.

“By vertically integrating in Switzerland with Robertet and Klersun, we will be able to provide the highest level of traceability and transparency to the Swiss customers of food & beverage, nutrition, supplement, cosmetics and pharma, who want to use CBD and hemp extract solutions in consumer products,”​ says Alan James Chaytor, director of Pacrim.

Olivier Maubert, director of the flavours division at Robertet, adds that hemp extracts, in particular cannabidiol (CBD), have emerged quickly on the global market as a beneficial functional ingredient to general health and wellness. A diverse range of products, from topicals, food, beverages and supplements have been launched in recent years.

He adds: “While there is much more research that needs to take place in order for the hard science to catch up with the consumer enthusiasm and demand, we are excited to lead in both this research and providing our customers with the safest and most effective hemp extracts to use in their products.”
