Why Work With BCI?
Insure and Evolve your quality
Responsible, transparent, and vertically integrated Botanical Supply Chains are the foundation of your Quality System. I have experience vertically integrating raw botanical materials with various types of processing from seed to bottle, dirt to mouth, and making the experience relevant to consumers to build your brand and importantly building the soil and farming communities I work with.
Plant Conservation and Herbal Education are also services BCI provides incorporating the latest in forward thinking deep ecology as well as a dose of reality gained from over 20 years in the US Herb Industry.
Let us help you navigate the waters of Corporate Sustainability programs, metrics and why you should even engage in this activity in the first place.
Depth and range of experience
I've worked in several areas of the botanical products business for over 21 years with one of the most respected brands in the Natural space, Gaia Herbs. I have experience in the manufacturing of liquid extracts and concentrates from vertically integrated materials to formulating dry deliveries and working with co-manufacturers for custom processing of botanicals.
As mentioned above, Herbal Education is a passion of mine as well and I have delivered lectures across the US and trained health food store staff on the sales floor for DSHEA compliant product recommendations.
Currently working on the cultivation and processing of tropical botanicals in Costa Rica and looking for interested parties to contact BCI if interested in buying these crops directly. Ashwagandha, Turmeric, Ginger, Holy Basil, Bacopa, and Passionflower are all under organic cultivation.
