Company Philosophy

Years of Experience with the Best of Nature

FLAVEX was founded in 1986 by the owners of the company Dr. Quirin and Dr. Gerard. Since then, our company has continuously grown and has established itself very successfully on the international market. The core competence of our middle-sized company is the gentle production of sensitive plant-based ingredients by extraction with the supercritical carbon dioxide. All products are developed, produced and certified at the company’s site in Rehlingen-Siersburg/Germany near the borders of France and the Benelux countries. 

Knowledge creates Innovation and Innovation creates Markets

Today, we are one of the world’s leading suppliers of CO2 extracts. As a pioneer in this field, we benefit from more than 35 years of know-how in engineering, phytochemistry and chemical analysis. We supply the cosmetic, perfume, food and dietary supplement industries worldwide with innovative and high-quality flavors, scents and bioactive components.

Sustainability is an essential part of our philosophy

Long-term and close relationships are the foundation for a reliable cooperation between us, our customers and suppliers.
We also have our own cultivation projects that secure the future of our raw material suppliers and customers.
