Founded in 1999 and headquartered near Lyon (France), the development of Natural Origins (ex HIS – Herb’s International Service) mirrored the professionalization of the nutraceutical industry. Natural Origins anticipated the increasing need for more natural products and more stringent quality requirements, and, in addition to developing a unique range of organic natural ingredients, the company invested significantly in tools and expertise to meet the growing regulations and ethical standards for the global trade of natural products. The company serves clients from the nutraceutical, pharma and cosmetic industries with over 500 natural (often organic) herbal products sourced from over 60 countries around the globe. Today, Natural Origins is one of the only independent players with a capacity to design, certify and operate streams of natural products with complete traceability and quality.
