Consumers – the entire population. Product - delicious food, not a medicine. It allows to save health in terms of technogenic environmental changes. Syrups, beverages, products from wild plants with pronounced radioprotective, immunostimulating properties are harmless, even under excessive using: ─ syrup and drink «Tavolga» neutralizes and restores the organism after exposure of a number of poisons, increases the organism resistance a daily exposure. Syrup represents the remedy at high single doses. The overall effect is expressed in immunity increase, saturate the organism with trace elements. ─ drink and syrup «Lesovichok» increases resistance to the adverse effects of the environment, improves male potency and longevity. ─ Viburnum syrup is a natural stabilizer of pressure. Indispensable for the aging organism. Continuous use in nutrition products of new generation can extend the active period of life, maintain health and sometimes life. Today the Firm has perspective developments including syrup «Lesovichok» with a high content of non-toxic organic selenium through the expense of new technologies. It’s necessary modern research equipment, new appliances for further product improvement. Raw materials collection and cultivation are produced in ecologically clean regions of Khakassia (Krasnoyarsk Region) and Mezhdurechensk (Kemerovo region). There is perspective of increasing the volume of the collection and expansion of land for growing plants. The company's products after the European certification can be issued directly in Europe or any other country, as the concentrates production in the raw material procurement areas may be increased during the year several times. It’s limited only with the amount of investment, because stocks of natural raw materials are very high. Moreover raw materials can be grown in the places of its recycling. Firm has a production workshop. Syrups production is established including functional plant syrup with selenium and series of drinks is planned to industrial production: a functional non-carbonated and carbonated soft drink based on it. In perspective, introduction in the syrups and drinks production enriched with vitamins, iodine, iodine and selenium is planned. Iodine and selenium deficiency has paired character. The combination of these two micronutrients deficits in one product may serve as one of the major risk factors in triggering of a number of diseases, primarily of endemic goiter. All drinks contain only natural ingredients. Not contain preservatives. Partners are invited to work together within the framework of R&D on the topic: «Development, research, technologies testing for the raw materials production with desired properties and functional food products based on it». Partners may be interested in joint production and issue concentrates by us for them, with the production transfer in countries suitable for partners. Firm has successfully completed the first stage of R&D within the confines of the State contract under the program «Development» with the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises in the scientific and technical sphere.
