Investing in the circular economy

Extracta converts low-cost raw materials that are currently lost to the food chain into high-value products.

Extracta recovers unused food and agricultural surplus and upcycles it into ingredients used by the food, nutraceutical and cosmetic industries, markets that are growing rapidly globally.

Environmentally aware production

Following environmentally friendly production, which is increasingly demanded by customers, Extracta reduces waste, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

There is increasing demand from Australian manufacturers for these products, and a strong preference for local, reliable producers like Extracta.


Low volume, high margin

Extracta has few direct competitors because its business model is focused on low volume, high margin, and superior quality products.

Most manufacturers produce high-volume, low-margin products in one or two base raw materials. This high-volume business model is unsustainable in Australia as it is not a large enough market to be sustainable.

For example, pectin has not been manufactured in Australia for many years due to price pressure from imported products. However, Extracta has proven it can be cost-effectively manufactured in Australia.

Australia has very few ingredient manufacturers for high-quality food and food as a medicine market. For example, Extracta’s first customer MediKane imports sugarcane from Japan as no competitive supplier exists in Australia, however, Extracta has proven it can deliver top-quality ingredients.
