Two new companies, located in Canada in the province of Quebec, are joining the BIOLANDES Group: Aliksir and Labrador Production.
A return to our roots in Canada
For the Biolandes Group, this is a new step and also a return to its roots: the company was created with the idea of distilling maritime pine in the Landes region, inspired by a study trip to conifer distilleries in Quebec. With the integration of Aliksir and Labrador Production into the group, we will be able to offer essential oils and hydrolats from the boreal forest as a producer. The history of these two companies, their desire to produce and make the most of local forest resources, by integrating part of the agricultural production with farms, all certified organic, are all assets that correspond to the values of the Biolandes Group and Golgemma. It is with the desire to share our experiences that we welcome the Quebec teams of these two entities.
Aliksir and Labrador production
Aliksir, located on the banks of the Saint Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City, offers essential oils of balsam fir, larch, cedar leaf and hemlock, as well as a whole range of plant essential oils produced on its organic farm around the distillery.
The Labrador distillery, located in the forested area on the shores of Lac Saint Jean, produces essential oils of black spruce, balsam fir and Labrador tea. The plant’s large distillation capacity means it can meet significant demand for both essential oils and hydrolats.
Certified organic products
With the integration of these two entities, the Biolandes Group is expanding its range of traced and certified organic essential oils, opening a new door to develop the riches of this very special ecosystem and offering unique plant extracts to all its customers, whether they are involved in the perfumery, flavour and food supplement, cosmetics or aromatherapy.
