Extracta creates value by recovering unused food and agricultural surplus and upcycling it into natural ingredients used by the food, nutraceutical and cosmetic industries.
Upcycling is an environmentally friendly way of giving unused material a new life. It reduces waste, saves energy, and avoids the cost of disposal. Reducing waste has significant environmental benefits, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and the products recovered have significant commercial value.

Extracta converts low-cost raw materials that are currently lost to the food chain into high-value products. The products Extracta is producing are in growing demand globally as health and nutrition products. Requirements to demonstrate environmentally responsible manufacturing and sustainability are also increasingly demanded by consumers. Extracta delivers in all of these areas.
Extracta has few direct competitors because its business model is focused on low volume, high margin, and superior quality products. Whereas most manufacturers in this area produce high-volume, low-margin products and are limited to one or two base raw materials. In many cases, this high-volume business model is unsustainable in Australia because it is not a large enough market to compete with low-wage countries.
For example, pectin has not been manufactured in Australia for many years due to price pressure from imported products. However, it can be cost-effectively manufactured in Australia so there is an opportunity to re-establish the local market.
Australia has very few ingredient manufacturers for high-quality food and food as a medicine market. For example, Extracta’s first customer MediKane currently imports sugarcane from Japan as no competitive supplier exists in Australia. Extracta can provide the quality standards required.
